Earlier it has been reported that UFC is set to return to the UK in March, and now the reports came out that Tom Aspinall vs Alexander Volkov Heavyweight bout will headline this event.
ESPN’s Brett Okamoto reported it first after confirming the booking with Dana White himself. The promotion is returning to the UK after three years as the last event took place back in March 2019.
Now, UFC is set to host a Fight Night event at the O2 Arena in London, and the main event will be a heavyweight bout between Aspinall and Volkov.
Alexander Volkov is coming off a victory against Marcin Tybura. He defeated Tybura at UFC 267 via unanimous decision.
On the other hand, Tom Aspinall is on a four-fight winning streak in UFC and has defeated Sergey Spivak and Andrei Arlovski in his last two fights.
Now, Volkov must be looking forward to giving Aspinall his very first UFC loss whereas Aspinall is determined to extend his winning streak in the promotion.
