UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs Aspinall

News Content

Fight fans get keen, UFC London is back!!!

UFC made its first European trip after the pandemic earlier this year and it was an instant classic.

We had 9 finishes out of 12 fights and all the UK’s best talent showed up large.

We're back to London again for another stacked Fight night card which is honestly as good as some of the PPVs this year.

A quick recap of our bets last week, we cashed in one juicy ticket for you guys in Li Jingliang as he got a finish, but we fell short as Brian Ortega got injured.

This week we're back to break down our exciting Heavyweight main event while hoping to cash some nice bets for you guys, so let’s get into it!

Curtis Blaydes vs Tom Aspinall

We’ve got a great main event lined up for a card worthy of all the attention, this is likely the no.1 contender fight for the Heavyweight division.

UK’s next hope for a champion, Tom Aspinall will put his UFC unbeaten run on the line against one of the best wrestlers in the UFC, Curtis Blaydes.

Curtis Blaydes has a pressure-heavy wrestling style with heavy hands to mix things up well and take over his opponent.

Blaydes has faced and beaten some elite competition in his run to the top of the Heavyweight Mountain like Alistair Overeem, Junior Dos Santos, and Alexander Volkov.

He is one of the most credentialed wrestlers in a division full of power punchers which makes him a nightmare matchup for anyone.

Blaydes has only lost to the champion and the king of knockouts in Derrick Lewis. Although he has bounced back and followed all his losses with win streaks.

This week he faces a completely different challenge in Tom Aspinall.

Aspinall is touted by many as the real deal who will take over the division and sit on the throne dominantly when it's all said and done.

He is riding a 5-fight win and finish streak in the UFC taking out some top names like Andrei Arlovski, Sergey Spivak, and Alexander Volkov.

Aspinall has quick hands which gives him a speed advantage over anyone in this division. He is an elite boxer who has a great fight IQ to mix in his weapons and backs it up with a balanced ground game which makes him a big threat.

This is a great clash of styles and being looked like a grappler vs striker fight but we think it's not that simple.

Blaydes has improved his striking and Aspinall has an underrated ground game which makes this a very well-rounded and exciting main event.

Best Bets

We're back with the chalk this week, our first pick this weekend is a parlay involving 2 big favorites Muhammad Mokaev and Molly Mccann.

Mokaev aspires of being the youngest ever UFC champion and he has got the fight fans pumped at the back of his debut round 1 finish.

We think he is a talented wrestler and has an explosive striking game on the feet which will be enough to take him to 8-0.

For our second leg, we're backing Meatball Molly who put on a show for the UK fans last time.

This time she is involved in a favorable matchup against Hannah Goldy who has nothing to offer on the feet, so we think Molly will make easy work of her.

Our next bet is around the cash cow Paddy Pimblett who faces Jordan Leavitt. Paddy is an explosive striker who loves going into the fire trusting his chin, although he has an elite ground game that neutralizes most grapplers.

We think this is a good matchup for him as Leavitt has poor striking and Paddy's ground game will neutralize his attacks.

We predict the hype train to continue in style as Paddy has good power and if he keeps this on the feet, he will find a round 1 or 2 finish.

Our last bet comes on the main event between two talented heavyweights.

Blaydes is a great fighter but his fight IQ and decision-making have been the reasons for his 3 losses in the UFC.

Aspinall is a great reader of the game, and he will have a speed advantage that will overwhelm the veteran eventually resulting in a big win for the homeboy.
