  • Wow going after someone like Ivanov instead of a less intense fighter really shows how serious he is about the sport.

  • These are the sort of role models British youth need ...not some Crack peddling A hole with a flashy car

  • What a class act. Talk about a living example of how a sportsman should conduct themselves. I hope he gets right to the top!

  • Instantly likeable.

  • Up the tics Tom lad

  • Pure class as an athlete and as a human being

  • If this man faces Blagoi Ivanov it's going to be similar to Conor McGregor Vs Dennis Sivver .. total mismatch and easy money 💸💰

  • Incredible guy. Iron mindset

  • Quagmire chin

  • Hell of a chin on this guy!

  • 100% the lovechild of Jimmy Hill and Mr Incredible. Top bloke savage in the cage.

  • It's annoying that Pimblett gets all the attention when this guy is the real deal. We have a legit top 5 heavyweight in Tom Aspinall, maybe more than that. Paddy probably wont break the top 15.

  • Seems like a top lad, big fan of this dude from his first fight in UFC 👌🏻

  • Was expecting 4 or 5 fights 😂 years !!!

  • like this lad

  • I love how he is working his way up the old fashioned way...

  • Fantastic fighter, down to Earth and likeable guy

  • Best of luck to Tom " Lightning Bolt " Aspinall

  • That chin is an easy target

  • What an awesome guy!

  • What a prospect

  • Calling it now. He fights Gane for the title in 2-3 years max.

  • What a guy. Top 5 fighter this year!

  • tom is an easy fighter to love and an easy man to root for. i know he wants to keep things slow and steady but the guy is on a rocketship right now. luckily, he seems to have the perfect temperament and intelligence to deal with whatever challenge comes next. can't wait, myself

    • well said mate, i think most of us would agree

  • What a boy, smashed it warrrior. Love the win. Peace and love brox x

  • Smart call out by Tom. If he actually somehow manages to finish ivanov that’ll be a statement and a half

  • 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

  • What an amazing down to earth dude in a quite ego building sport, takes a certain kind of person to act like this. Looking forward to seeing his career. :)

  • He's a good english lad

  • Was great to see how much the performance bonus meant to him. He's also so fast and powerful and a force to be reckoned with in the very nr future. Definitely a future title contender.

  • Comes across as a very intelligent person. He's going to the very top.

  • tom aspinall looks like the human versiom shrek

  • Helvetica and Times New Roman walk into a bar. “Get out of here!” shouts the bartender. “We don’t serve your type.”.....

  • He seems like the nicest of chaps. Friendly, eloquent and honest. He’ll be winning many fans I’m sure.

    • Couldn’t agree more. I’m defo a fan now and wish him all the luck. From all the Brits on the card, he’s defo the most humble.

    • Of the English fighters? Yes he is the quietest and less animated...

  • Very importantly, Tom himself is saying he is 4-5 years away from being ready for a title shot. He wants to take his time, mature properly and develop his skills more without rushing too fast. So can we put an end to the detractors saying Francis, Stipe and Gane would destroy him?

    • @Dub Collector to be fair he's still fighting tough lads. He wanted Blagoy next, that dude was stabbed in the chest, fought off a gang of attackers, called himself a cab to the hospital, went into a coma, woke up, won his next 4 fights and still has a hole where he was stabbed. I hope the UFC realise they cant push young fighters too fast. Happened to Till also. UFC pushed him way too fast. Title shot with woodley came too soon, poor wrestling, end even pillow hands masvidal can knock him out. They really need to take their time with fan favourites. Same again happened with Chase Hooper. Guy is like 20 and the ufc threw him in with Cacares (who has a ufc career of 10 full years) who murdered him all night.

    • Yeah but if he wins, the ufc will most likely push him. He already beat Arlovski, so I imagine he’ll get a top 5 fight in 2-4 fights if he keeps winning / who. The way he fights, it’s looking like late next year before he’s in with those killers

  • I find him so clever. The fact that he always maintains slow steady progress is not only smart fighting wise, but also business wise. Him fighting a top 5 now gets him the same amount of money as nr 12. But if he continues to smash ppl he will fight out his contract and then get a bigger contract. THEN fight top 5 and possibly title. The man is silently hacking the system. Proper Einstein of MMA 😂

    • @Sukhdev R34 i fully understand your excitement! he has got ALOT of potential.

    • @technodromen I'm more excited about Aspinall than Till and Edwards. It's the first time (as an Englishman) that I've thought an English mma fighter can genuinely win the title. Till is overrated, Edwards is nowhere near Colby or Usman, Bisping was alright but his longevity paid off and Manuwa and amazing striking but poor wrestling.

    • ​@Sukhdev R34 exactly! and since he is a HW he knows he isn't even near his prime yet. heard him talking about fighting for 15-20 years more! very interesting and different approach to the UFC game. he has made me one of his favorites :-D

    • Good point. Some fighters rise right to the top like Till because of the hype train and never get the chance again.

  • He’s taking his MMA career like a boxing one stack your record then get the title

  • fight ben rothwel

  • This guy is awesome so self aware and humble he will go far, also a beast of a fighter. Exciting for us brits.

  • Tom is all Class, deserves the bonus, an absolute machine 👏

  • Cool guy hope he go's far 🇬🇧

  • So good to see this guy..clean fresh humble and definitely a fighter

  • NW represent!!!!

  • The bright helicopter osmotically present because whorl luckily risk up a guttural H habitual sea. bitter, smart tanker

  • This guy is real future if ur from Liverpool he’s ur only hope for a future champ

  • 🇬🇧 ♥ 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

  • Tom is definitely going to get there!

  • British MMA Renaissance :)

  • Nice guy , very humble and great fighter well done Tom 👊

  • Never seen a heavyweight move so fast, like the tyson fury of mma. Toms the real deal and has a lot of potential.

    • Gane...

    • @SUS definitely explains the fast hands. Fact he’s finishing his fights this way over using his black belt BJJ shows his calibre

    • @tom he sparred with Tyson too

    • Tom used to spar a lot with Tommy Fury, Tysons brother. Very well balanced fighter for sure

  • What a top guy, well done Tom, onwards and upwards.

  • Geddon tom, well done mate

  • Great work Tom 💪🏻🙂

  • That’s a lot of face to aim for 👀😂

    • Also a lot of chin to get through though

  • Seems like a good dude

  • I thought his chin was edited to look big on thumbnail, I was wrong!

  • First dislike has babydick syndrome

  • Wait, was he serious about waiting 4-5 years before he fights the top of the division!? I can't imagine the UFC's brass reaction to that. They don't slow roll ANYONE, especially for 4-5 years! Maybe 1-2 years max. I hope he's not serious, but if he is, he better say in England and fight there for a few years, bc the UFC is going to want him fighting top 5 next year.

    • It'd a very mature attitude on his part. Realistically, though, if he starts taking out top 10 & 5 contenders emphatically like he did yesterday, then it'd surely come sooner.

    • yh sounds a bit too long to wait tbh-depends on how he gets on with top 10 tho

  • Proudly been on the Tom train for a while now. He keeps getting better and it's a bad sign for the HW division

  • Definitely champ material these English are so damn fast including footwork even as a Heavyweight that makes him so scary

  • $$$$$$

  • Adesanya vs Aspinall please 😍

    • bruh even i dont hate izzy that much man.

    • Aspinall would kill Adesanya

    • Check out their respective weight...

  • He looking as if he is from making weight clean as a whistle

  • Aspinall vs gane will be an interesting match in the making both bounce around like middleweights👊🏿

    • @ConfusedOilPainter Tom *might* have faster hands but Gane should surely have a kicking advantage. Very tasty future match-up, at any rate.

    • @ConfusedOilPainter absolutely no way. He's a 4-5 fights from Gane

    • @ConfusedOilPainter he definitely doesn’t win that fight yet.

    • Tom quite rightly would make the call that he is not ready for that fight. He wants to develop his skills for a few more years more before rushing into title contendership. Thats respectable. Its a mature outlook, and he is young.

    • @ConfusedOilPainter No chance Gane is on another level

  • His movement and feints look like a light heavyweight.. he’s very good

  • He spoke to schmo before the fight it will be elbow and he stand by his word. This guy much deserve a good fan base in future.

  • I’ve gotta wait 4-5 years for this man to win the belt🥲

    • More like 2

  • Fast becoming a big fan of Tom, hope he goes on BYM and Ariel on Monday

  • Top call individual

  • Deserves it! The bloke is diverse and a class act in the octagon and on the microphone

  • Also hes hot

    • Not hotter then egg man Tyson Fury

    • woah woah lmao

    • 😂😂😂

    • Get in there Victoria 💪

    • Smells like a fish market in this comment section
