UFC FIGHT NIGHT: BLAYDES VS ASPINALL also known as UFC London aired live in Asia on Sunday, July 24 from the O2 Arena in London. Although the main event ended prematurely, the card was full of action from the start.

In a heavyweight contenders' match, No. 4 ranked Curtis Blaydes took on hometown hero No. 6 ranked Tom Aspinall. Aspinall came out fast, pressing the action on Blaydes, who responded with hard punches, but then after Aspinall landed kick, he fell to the mat with a knee injury. The official time of the stoppage was:15 of the first round, an unfortunate finish to the main event.

Middleweight contender Jack Hermansson fought a disciplined and effective three rounds against Chris Curtis. Hermansson used reach and stayed a step ahead of Curtis, winning on the scorecards via unanimous decision. Hermansson said,

"It's a win, that's the most important thing. You're always aiming to have the most awesome performance of your life and want a finish, but this time I got a decision. It was really cool to go out there, the English fans are so great"

Paddy Pimblett delivered an exhilarating performance for the London crowd once again. Jordan Leavitt put in the first round of aggression, and Pimblett responded with blitzing submission attempts, eventually tapping Leavitt with a rear naked choke in the second round.

Molly McCann earned her second knockout victory in London. It started with her signature spinning back elbow that stunned Hannah Goldy, and "Meatball" followed up with a barrage of strikes that stopped the fight at 3:52 of the first round.
