he UFC returns to London this weekend as heavyweight Tom Aspinall tops the bill.
Aspinall beat Alexander Volkov at the O2 little over a year ago in a dominant display but saw his progress curtailed by a nasty knee injury picked up against Curtis Blaydes.
Now back after a lengthy layoff, it is a hugely important night in the 30-year-old’s career as he hunts for a world title shot but must first overcome Marcin Tybura.
Co-headliner Molly McCann is another looking for redemption.
Her defeat to rising star Erin Blanchfield last year took McCann to “dark places” but a victory against Julija Stoliarenko would be a major statement of intent.
Here’s everything you need to know about the event.

UFC London 2023 predictions
Beating Tybura certainly isn’t a formality but the Polish fighter is not as tough a test as Blaydes, who Aspinall picked up his injury against.
While a lengthy lay-off does raise some questions, Apsinall blasted past Alexander Volkov a year ago and, at that time, was riding the crest of a wave.
Even with the injury, the Brit looks a strong favourite.
Aspinall to win via TKO.
