Curtis Blaydes vs Tom Aspinall - UFC Fight Night: All you need to know

The UFC returns to London for the second time in 2022 on Saturday when heavyweight Tom Aspinall takes on Curtis Blaydes.

The O2 Arena hosted an incredible card in March as the UFC returned to London for the first time in three years and UFC president Dana White vowed to "come back this year" after revealing the card left him "re-energised".

White has been true to his word and there will be another full house at the O2 Arena on Saturday with British talent looking to catch the eye once again.

Curtis Blaydes 11/10, Tom Aspinall 8/11

There were seven British winners on the card in March, including Aspinall as he earned a submission victory over Alexander Volkov to close out the night, and the Atherton fighter, now ranked #6 in the heavyweight division, headlines once again.

Aspinall is riding an eight-fight win streak with each of his five trips to the UFC octagon ending in victory and he's fast closing in on a title shot.

But Blaydes is a formidable adversary, having been in the UFC since 2016, and he has won his last two contests following a knockout loss to Derrick Lewis.

Liverpool's Darren Till was due to make his return in the co-main against Jack Hermansson, however, he pulled out with injury earlier in July and has since been replaced by Chris Curtis.

Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann, who both earned victories on the March card, will represent Liverpool, though, as they take on Jordan Leavitt and Hannah Goldy respectively.

The likes of Paul Craig, Marc Diakiese, Nathaniel Wood, Muhammad Mokaev and Jai Herbert will also be flying the British flag in London.
