Tom Aspinall Eyes Unification Matches with Jones and Miocic Following UFC 295 Victory


In an exclusive interview with TNT Sports, Tom Aspinall, the newly crowned interim UFC heavyweight champion, expressed his determination to unify the division by facing Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic.

Aspinall’s impressive win over Sergei Pavlovich at UFC 295, secured with just two weeks’ preparation, catapulted him into contention for bouts against the renowned heavyweights.

The 30-year-old fighter is resolute in his pursuit of unifying the titles, asserting that the presence of multiple champions in a weight class is not aligned with the sport’s essence.

Aspinall emphasized his urgency to face both Jones and Miocic, recognizing the limited timeframe to compete against such esteemed opponents.

Expressing his preference, Aspinall prioritizes a showdown with Jon Jones, acknowledging Jones’ unavailability at present due to undisclosed reasons.

However, he highlights Stipe Miocic as the available contender, citing the logical sense in scheduling a fight against the former champion to progress towards his goal of unifying the heavyweight division.

Aspinall acknowledges the presence of other contenders but firmly states his intention to face the established names while they are still active in the sport.

He underscores the significance of having the likes of Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic on his record, considering their stature in the fighting world.

The English fighter recognizes the UFC’s preference for a Jones vs. Miocic bout but hopes his recent stellar performance can sway the promotion’s decision in his favor.

With aspirations to fight at UFC 300 or potentially in his hometown of Manchester, Aspinall eagerly awaits the opportunity to showcase his skills on a grand stage, emphasizing the personal significance of fighting in his native city.

Aspinall’s ambitious quest to unify the heavyweight division continues to gain momentum, fueled by his recent victory and unwavering determination to test himself against the best in the sport.
