Cormier: Tom Aspinall might be troublesome for the UFC to disregard if he blitzes previous Curtis Blaydes

Tom Aspinall might drive the UFC’s hand in his UFC 304 predominant occasion struggle with Curtis Blaydes, based on Daniel Cormier. 

Briton Aspinall rematches American wrestler Blaydes in Manchester later this month in defence of the interim heavyweight championship he secured final November inside Madison Sq. Backyard; a struggle which comes about because of the UFC’s insistence on pairing divisional champ Jon Jones in opposition to Stipe Miocic when he returns from a pectoral damage.

And whereas that struggle is closely rumoured to happen in New York Metropolis in November, Cormier — a former two-division champion in his personal proper — says that Aspinall might insert himself into the speedy title image if he finishes Blaydes in devastating style after they sq. off in Manchester’s Co-Op enviornment late on July twenty seventh.

“May you think about if Tom Aspinall simply washes out Curtis Blaydes?” Cormier stated of the struggle on his YouTube channel, as reported by MMA Junkie.

“Then the firestorm that might begin to collect for him to struggle Jones. For there to really be an rebellion, it must be Aspinall destroying Blaydes. Solely due to this, you’ve seen Curtis Blaydes lose earlier than, so individuals would assume, ‘Oh, he beat Tom Aspinall, however we’ve seen him get beat by Francis [Ngannou] and we’ve seen him lose to different guys. He’s going to lose to Jones.’

“But when Aspinall goes by Blaydes in the way in which that he did Sergei Pavlovich, and he’s solely misplaced due to that damage, individuals would lose their minds virtually insisting that he and Jones struggle. If Tom Aspinall can get by this struggle, and he’s clear and he seems to be dominant, there could also be such a fan rebellion that the UFC might must be pressured to make Jones vs. Aspinall. I don’t know what that might imply for my man Stipe, but it surely appears like if it does occur, he’s OK with it.”

Aspinall does tend to win his fights shortly and decisively. In his 17 fights to this point, not one has seen the top of the second spherical, with every of his seven UFC wins coming by way of end. Even his sole loss, resulting from a knee damage in his first struggle with Blaydes two years in the past, got here simply 15 seconds into the primary spherical.

When pressed on the matter, UFC boss Dana White has maintained in current months that Jones vs. Miocic would be the subsequent heavyweight title bout if and when they’re prepared — but when one is to undergo some form of setback that might delay the bout additional, Aspinall might drive the UFC’s hand in awarding him that undisputed title struggle that his physique of labor — and followers — appear to demand.
