Tom Aspinall Ready to Get Back in the Spotlight
He’s one of the best heavyweights on the planet, there’s no arguing about that. Tom Aspinall’s overall record is 12-3, although one of those three losses was the TKO one in the Blaydes fight, in which he practically injured himself.
When it comes to his wins, all of them happened inside the distance. Nine times he won by a KO/TKO, and three times by a submission. What’s also very interesting is that this guy’s never spent more than 9 minutes inside the cage in his professional career.
But there’s a first for everything; maybe that will change this Saturday in London?
Can Marcin Tybura Stage an Upset at The O2?
Marcin Tybura is a jack of all trades, whose strongest weapon is his resilience. This guy is tough as nails, the evidence being that he’s 7-1 in his last eight fights in which he’s fought some real nasty opponents. In his most recent fight, he defeated Blagoy Ivanov by a unanimous decision, while in the fight before that, he won against Alexander Romanov by a majority decision.
He’s 24-7 overall with four losses inside the distance, each of which was by a KO/TKO. The last time it happened was almost four years ago when Augusto Sakai KO-ed him. But it was back when Sakai was in his prime. In fact, the Brazilian came into the Tybura fight after a win over Andrei Arlovski.
Tom Aspinall vs. Marcin Tybura Prediction
If you compare Aspinall with Tybura, he’s better in every single aspect of MMA fighting, including fitness. Sure, he’s coming off a hiatus, but It’s been almost a year since his knee injury, so Aspinall should be fine by now. Backed by his fans at The O2 Arena, Aspinall will probably go for another stoppage win.
