MMA legend Chael Suns is high on promoting the upcoming heavyweight fight between Tom Aspinall and Curtis Blaydes on his youtube channel as he believes the importance of the fight is far greater than the audience can imagine at the sight. Blaydes is a longtime UFC heavyweight who has battled the top competition for more than 6 years and is known for his victories over the like Alistair Overeem, Junior Dos Santos, Jairzinho Rozenstruik, Alexander Volkov, and Chris Daukaus and many more. A veteran wrestler with underrated quick-wittedness, Blaydes is good at mixing his ground game with his stand-up arsenal.
Tom Aspinall is one of the fastest rising talents in UFC history. He is the son of Andy Aspinall who is one of the first black belts in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from England. To be fair, Aspinall comes from a very strong background in BJJ but is also a very angry boxer with fast hands. Aspinall is currently unbeaten in the UFC and his latest win is the biggest of his career with a first-round loss Alexander Volkov. Aspinall is also known for his win over the former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovsky. This weekend marks the second time Aspinall has led a fight card at UFC London, this time against his biggest challenge in Curtis Blaydes.
