UFC London ‘Aspinall Vs. Tybura’ + Weekly MMA Report

UFC Vegas 77 brought many dynamic fights. The majority of preliminary card battles went the distance, but there were no boring moments. The main card was fireworks, and we witnessed many legendary moments and upsets.

The Fight of the Night bonus was given to Aussie delight Jack Della Maddalena and the former Cage Fury FC champion Bassil Hafez. The two took part in a very dynamic three-round war, where Jack earned a razor-close decision win in the co-main event of the evening.

Francisco Prado destroyed Ottman Azaitar with a spinning back elbow and a barrage of ground-and-pound shots, which banked him an extra 50k. The second Performance of the Night bonus went into the hands of Mayra Bueno Silva, who stopped Holly Holm with a rare standing ninja choke in the second.

The event is headlined by the combat between the most technical heavyweight boxer Tom Aspinall and very strong cage-control and ground-and-pound expert Marcin Tybura. Tom Aspinall is better inside the pocket, his punches rarely miss. But there is a little problem.

Aspinall is returning after an ACL injury, while Tybura outwrestled some of the most powerful names of the UFC’s 265-pound roster. The Brit will have to keep this fight standing if he plans to score a victory, as his BJJ might be too weak for Tybura’s amazing top control and super-human strength.

Prediction: over 1.5 rounds

The co-main event of the evening looks very entertaining too, as a Scottish spinning back elbow queen Molly McCann squares off Lethwei fighter, known for her amazing armbar, Julija Stoliarenko. McCann is safe when she keeps the fight standing, but Stoliarenko is very scrappy off her back. Molly will have to keep the bout on the feet by any means necessary.

Prediction: the fight will not go the distance
