Tom Aspinall is stepping back into the octagon for a high-stakes rematch against Curtis Blaydes at UFC 304. While the fight promises excitement, Aspinall candidly admits that it’s a “lose-lose” situation due to Blaydes’ lack of popularity. Let’s break down the dynamics of this intriguing matchup:

In their first encounter at UFC Fight Night 208 in July 2022, Tom Aspinall suffered a knee injury just 15 seconds into the fight, resulting in a loss. Now, with the interim heavyweight title on the line, he has a chance to rectify that defeat. However, the circumstances surrounding this rematch are far from ideal.

The “Lose-Lose” Scenario for Tom Aspinall

Tom Aspinall acknowledges that Blaydes poses a significant stylistic challenge for him in the heavyweight division. But beyond that, the lack of popularity surrounding Blaydes makes this rematch less appealing. Aspinall explains, “This is no disrespect to Curtis, but he’s a bit of a lose-lose fight in the fact that he’s not that popular.” Fighters often seek opponents who match up well stylistically and have a strong fan following. Blaydes, unfortunately, falls into the opposite category.

Despite the challenges, Tom Aspinall remains focused on the task at hand. He recognizes that heavyweight MMA is unpredictable, and anyone can win on any given night. Aspinall’s confidence in his abilities is unwavering, but he’s fully aware of the risks. “One shot off Curtis, and the ref might be waking me up,” he says. “That’s how it works. This is heavyweight MMA at the peak of the mountain.”

Jon Jones’ Perspective

Interestingly, former champion Jon Jones weighed in on the “No. 1 contender bout” and believes Blaydes could emerge victorious this time. Aspinall takes it in stride, emphasizing that he’s the one stepping into the cage while Jones remains on the sidelines. Aspinall’s determination and willingness to put it all on the line set the stage for an intense showdown.
