UFC London: Blaydes vs. Aspinall predictions

North American fans will need to wake up early as the main card for UFC London featuring Curtis Blaydes and Tom Aspinall starts at 3:00 p.m. ET.

The prelims start at 12:00 noon ET but for many fans that simply means an earlier day for the fights.

A lot of fights are scheduled packing a lot of U.K. talent. Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card, but first, a word from Dana White.

 

MAIN CARD (3PM ET/11AM PT)

#8 PAUL CRAIG (16-4-1) VS. #9 VOLKAN OEZDEMIR (17-6-0)

ANDREWS: Oezdemir worked with Chimeav but will the changes to his training pay off? Craig is on fire and I think takes the bout to the ground for the tap.

ANDREWS PREDICTION: Paul Craig via submission

MOLLY MCCANN (12-4-0) VS. HANNAH GOLDY (6-2-0)

ANDREWS: Goldy is a solid fighter, Molly will use the home crowd to her advantage.

ANDREWS PREDICTION: Molly McCann via TKO

NIKITA KRYLOV (27-9-0) VS. ALEXANDER GUSTAFSSON (18-7-0)

ANDREWS: Both guys need a win badly. Gustafsson’s prime was 10 years ago. He is older now, but is he back? Gustafson’s reach and height advantages are something to think about. going with TheMauler.

ANDREWS PREDICTION:

PADDY PIMBLETT (18-3-0) VS. JORDAN LEAVITT (10-1-0)

ANDREWS: Leavitt is a solid fighter, but Paddy the Baddy is coming for him.

ANDREWS PREDICTION: Paddy Pimblett via TKO

#8 JACK HERMANSSON (22-7-0) VS. CHRIS CURTIS (29-8-0)

Andrews: The Joker is a solid fighter, but Chris Curtis has been on fire. His grappling and power wins him this fight.

Andrews Prediction: Chris Curtis via TKO

MAIN EVENT

#4 CURTIS BLAYDES (16-3-0, 1NC) VS. #6 TOM ASPINALL (12-2-0)

ANDREWS: On paper Blaydes wins this one, but the fight is in London and Aspinall is on fire. He impressively stopped Volkov and he does the same here.

ANDREWS PREDICTION: Tom Aspinall via TKO

Enjoy the fights.
