After suffering a gruesome leg injury last year Tom Aspinall (13-3) made a statement in his return to action. Aspinall’s opponent was seasoned veteran Marcin Tybura (24-8), who had won seven of his last eight fights. Aspinall had been sidelined for an entire year after shattering his leg against Curtis Blaydes last July. Tybura came into this contest as the tenth-ranked Heavyweight contender in the UFC but he had no answer for Aspinall on the feet. Aspinall has unbelievable movement and agility for a Heavyweight. Showing that he was fully recovered from injury, Tom Aspinall quickly finished Tybura one minute and fifteen seconds into the first round.
Aspinall charged forward from the opening bell landing a thunderous head kick in the opening fifteen seconds. Tybura was on the defensive after the kick and Aspinall darted in and out of range throwing damaging combinations. After landing a short elbow on the inside, Aspinall threw a left hook-straight right that dropped Tybura. Aspinall followed up with a few heavy shots on the ground that forced referee Marc Goddard to stop the fight. Following this massive win, Aspinall was asked if he has his sights set on champion Jon Jones. Aspinall replied saying “Give me that Microphone Michael Bisping I’ll tell you exactly what I’m gonna do… I’m going to go to Paris I’m gonna sit front row for Serghei Spivac and Ciryl Gane, I’m gonna beat the winner and then I’m going to beat Jon Jones“.
