Tom Aspinall hints at upcoming fight news and calls Stipe Miocic the GOAT

UFC heavyweight contender Tom Aspinall teases potential fight news amidst claims that he will headline the July UK card

The UFC wants to replicate the massive success of UFC London with a Tom Aspinall main event in their rumored UFC Liverpool event in July. The O2 Arena hosted one of the biggest fight night cards in UFC history with action-packed fights, an electrifying crowd, and the dawning of new superstars from the UK.

Although Paddy Pimblett was the star of the show, his performance did raise a few questions, something that cannot be said of Aspinallโ€™s performance. The heavyweight fighter absolutely dismantled his opponent, and showed promise in every department.

The star of the show called out Tai Tuivasa after his win, and the UFC top brass were sold on the idea. Aspinall has now posted a picture of him on Instagram, preparing for a fight and captioned the post, โ€˜ Massive fight in the works ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜โ€™

Tom Aspinall hails Stipe Miocic as the greatest heavyweight fighter of all time

Aspinall made an appearance on the MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, and spoke about his last outing in the octagon, his influences, and future plans. Aspinall also shared his views on why GSP is the greatest fighter of all time, and his opinion of Stipe Miocic.

Sharing his thoughts on the GOAT debate, and how the child inside him was blooming with joy when GSP commented on his post, Aspinall said, โ€œOf course heโ€™s No. 1, who else is it gonna be? This is what I think: To be the greatest of all time, this is gonna sound like madness, but GSP first of all did it in two weight divisions. Also, GSP had some bad losses and came back. To me, that is a sign of a real champion. Of course you can be like Khabib, and you can be all the rest of it, and thatโ€™s brilliant, but what does he do under the adversity? We still donโ€™t know because heโ€™s that much better than everybody else. But in my opinion, two weights, thatโ€™s the difference. The two weights.โ€
