Tom Aspinall is a professional Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter, and the current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight interim champion. Born on April 4, 1993, in Manchester, England, he stands at a towering 6’5” and is known for his exceptional speed, technical skills, and a lethal striking technique.

Before he embarked on his professional MMA career, Aspinall trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) from an early age. His father, Andy Aspinall, a Ju-Jitsu instructor, introduced him to the sport, shaping his foundation in combat sports. Aspinall excelled in BJJ, achieving a black belt and establishing himself as a formidable professional BJJ practitioner.

Aspinall started his professional MMA career in 2014, grappling his way through regional promotions in the United Kingdom. However, his initial journey wasn’t straight to the top but involved rigorous training and determination. He was signed to the EFCA (European Fighting Challenge) where he gradually built a solid reputation winning most of his fights by first-round stoppages.

In 2020, Aspinall was signed to the UFC, presenting him with the opportunity to showcase his fighting prowess on the international stage. His first fight in the UFC was against Jake Collier, which he won by a first-round TKO, ensuring a fantastic start to his UFC journey. It only took him 45 seconds to secure a win, thus attracting significant attention and establishing his presence in the heavyweight roster.

Aspinall continued his winning streak in the UFC by defeating opponents such as Alan Baudot and Andrei Arlovski. His speedy victories earmarked him as a promising prospect in the UFC heavyweight division, receiving widespread acclaim from fans and critics alike. As of 2022, his professional MMA record stands at 11 wins and 2 losses, illustrating his dominance in the sport.

Fighters in the UFC often have unique fighting styles and Aspinall’s is no different. His name is synonymous with technical prowess, speed, and agility- a rare trait for a heavyweight fighter. His boxing skills coupled with his BJJ background gives him a complete toolkit allowing him to compete both on the ground and in stand-up battles.

Today, Aspinall continues to train at the Team Kaobon in Liverpool, England founded by his father. Training alongside notable names like Darren Till has played a significant role in honing Aspinall’s fighting techniques and preparing him for his fights in the Octagon.

In addition to his MMA career, Aspinall is also known for his charismatic personality. He has a massive social media following and is widely recognized for his relationship with his fans, often treating them with candid knowledge about his training, fights, and personal life.

Overall, Tom Aspinall’s exceptional discipline, raw power, and relentless pursuit for victory have made him a formidable contender in UFC’s heavyweight division. His entry into the UFC and his performance so far has not only sparked excitement among fans, but it has also brought fresh attention to the potential of British fighters in global MMA and especially the UFC.
