Rising British Star Tom Aspinall Set to Take on Sergei Pavlovich
UFC legend Michael Bisping has compared rising British star Tom Aspinall to one of boxing’s legendary icons. Aspinall, who recently made a comeback from a serious knee injury, is back in the Octagon this weekend at UFC 295. He will be facing Sergei Pavlovich for the interim UFC heavyweight title, stepping in on short notice.
Aspinall’s career has been nothing short of impressive. After a dominant first-round stoppage win over Marcin Tybura, the 30-year-old is now being touted as a future contender for the full UFC heavyweight title in 2024. Winning the interim belt would put him in a prime position to seize that opportunity.
In an interview with Betway, Bisping praised Aspinall’s accomplishments and stated that he ranks among the top three fighters in the UFC’s heavyweight division. Bisping, who himself had a challenging path to the title, acknowledged the difference in their journeys. He highlighted his own physical limitations, including losing an eye and enduring various injuries, while Aspinall continues to excel and improve.
According to Bisping, Aspinall stands out from the rest of the division. He possesses superior speed, strength, wrestling skills, and jujitsu. Bisping even compared Aspinall’s movement to that of boxing legend Muhammad Ali. Additionally, he commended Aspinall’s humility, youth, and prime condition. The rising star hails from Lancashire, further adding to his appeal.
With his upcoming fight against Pavlovich, all eyes will be on Aspinall as he aims to solidify his position as a force to be reckoned with in the UFC heavyweight division.
