“I’m born for this,” Aspinall said in his post-fight interview. “The secret is self-belief.”

After the win he called out Tai Tuivasa, “In England, we drink beer,” he said hinting at Tuivasa’s famous shoeys.

Volkov was coming off a decision win over Marcin Tybura at UFC 267 and was looking to start a new win streak with a victory over Aspinall.

Aspinall was looking to win big at home and keep his unbeaten UFC streak alive with a win over Volkov in front of his hometown crowd.

This was the first event held abroad outside of Fight Island since the pandemic began and happened nearly 2 years to the day that UFC London 2020 was canceled.
