Back in March Tom Aspinall, Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett and Molly McCann thrilled a home crowd with victories as UFC Fight Night London returned to the capital for the first time in three years. 

And all three are back as UFC returns to the capital tonight.  Tom Aspinall headlines a UFC London event for the second time this year when he takes on Curtis Blaydes.  In March, Aspinall submitted veteran Alexander Volkov in the first round in London.  That victory took Aspinall’s win streak to eight, with all of those wins achieved via stoppage, and saw him climb to No.6 in the heavyweight rankings.  Now the 29-year-old is set for his toughest challenge so far as he goes up against fourth-ranked Blaydes.  Thirty-one-year-old Blaydes (16-3) will enter the O2 Arena on the back of two straight wins, with his last loss – against Derrick Lewis in February 2021 – ending an impressive four-fight win streak.  The American’s only other defeats have come against reigning UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou.

Accompanying Aspinall on a return to the octagon in the capital is Liverpool’s Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett, who is up against American Jordan Leavitt in a lightweight bout.  A rising star in the UFC British ranks, Pimblett is on a four-fight winning streak after his submission win over Rodrigo Vargas in March.

Swedish star Jack Hermansson takes on American Chris Curtis in a middleweight bout, while Molly McCann will be aiming to continue her momentum after her dramatic win in London in March courtesy of a stunning spinning back elbow to see off the Brazilian Luana Carolina.  McCann’s opponent tonight is fellow flyweight Hannah Goldy who trains out of Orlando, Florida.

See below for the full card.

Speaking on the announcement of March’s UFC Fight Night London, UFC president Dana White said: “Every time we put on an event in London it’s an unbelievable experience.

“The fans are incredible, and the fights are always off the charts.  It’s a different kind of energy in England.  And I can’t wait to get back there with a fight card.”
