New Yorkers will be a lucky bunch this weekend when UFC 295 stops in for what will surely be a winter wonderland for fans in attendance. Two title fights and a veritable cornucopia of other violent delights. From top to bottom, the UFC is giving fans the rare gift of a great card on paper and one that will no doubt deliver on fight night.


Sergei Pavlovich vs. Tom Aspinall is a great heavyweight fight. Yes, you read that correctly, I said “great heavyweight fight” and didn’t put a laughing emoji after it. Both men are in their prime and relatively young for heavyweights. Both men are knockout artists with thunder and lightning in their hands and both are also quick.

Sergei Pavlovich has never been out of the first round, though. Even in defeat, he’s never seen round two. That gives many pause, myself included, no matter how dazzling he is inside those first five minutes. What does his cardio look like? How will he look if Aspinall decides to take it to the ground? After all, Tom has three submission wins, so it wouldn’t be outside the realm of possibility.

Tom Aspinall’s 16-fight career is nearly as brief as his opponent’s. In those sixteen contests, he’s only been to the second round—and no further—three times, even in a loss. So here we have two men with certified heaters and we have no idea what they look like in the third round, much less the championship rounds, but I guarantee we’re all anxious to find out.

Let’s take a look at how both men stack up with facts and figures:

Sergei Pavlovich

  • Ranked No. 2
  • Age: 31
  • Record: 18-1 (15 KOs)
  • Longest UFC streak: 6
  • Last opponent: Curtis Blaydes
  • 4 POTN

Tom Aspinall

  • Ranked No. 4
  • Age: 30
  • Record: 13-3 (10 KOs)
  • Longest UFC streak: 5
  • Last opponent: Marcin Tybura
  • 5 POTN
