UFC Results: Tom Aspinall Delights The England Crowd
UFC Fight Night 224 was the Tom Aspinall show, as the heavyweight scored a convincing first round finish over Marcin Tybura.
The entire card streamed live on ESPN+ from The O2 Arena in London, England. The heavyweight encounter served as the main event.
Aspinall, a native of Leigh, Greater Manchester, England, improved to 13-3 when he floored Tybura just over a minute into their scheduled five-round affair. He is now 6-1 inside the Octagon, with the lone loss coming because of a knee injury vs. Curtis Blaydes last July.
In the co-main event, Julija Stoliarenko upset Molly McCann, scoring her own first round finish with an armbar submission. Stoliarenko also rebounded from a loss and is now 11-7-2 overall.
Big Nights From Nathaniel Wood, Paul Craig
Nathaniel Wood and Paul Craig were among the main card winners who led England with momentum in their favor.
Wood scored a decision victory over Andre Fili in a featherweight affair, while Craig stopped Andre Muniz late in the second round of their middleweight bout.
Fares Ziam, Lerone Murphy and Daniel Marcos were the other main card winners.
Prelims Belong To Jonny Parsons
In the preliminary main event on ESPN+ and UFC Fight Pass, Jonny Parsons stopped Danny Roberts with just three seconds left in the second round.
The win should be a big one in the career progress of Parsons at welterweight.
Joel Alvarez submitted Marc Diakiese with a brabo choke and Jafel Filho locked in an arm-triangle choke on Daniel Barez to begin the night.
Between those finishes, it was a decision-fest, as Mick Parkin, Makhmud Muradov, Ketlen Vieira, Chris Duncan and Bruna Brasil were all declared winners.
Bonus money went to Parson and Roberts for “Fight of the Night,” while Aspinall and Craig picked up “Performance of the Night” bonuses.
What Is Up Next
It is a big one on the horizon for the promotion, as UFC 291 takes place Saturday, July 29. The event will emulate from the Delta Center in Salt Lake City, Utah with Dustn Poirier and Justin Gaethje in the main event.
The “BMF” title will be on the line when Poirier and Gaethje square off.
