An intriguing heavyweight clash has been announced for March 2022 in the UFC. Britain’s Tom Aspinall will be facing Russia’s Shamil Abdurakhimov on March 19 at a event that is yet to be announced.
Aspinall is currently on a seven-bout winning streak that includes four triumphs within the Las Vegas-based promotion. The 28-year-old Brit defeated Sergey Spivak in September via TKO in the opening round.
Abdurakhimov, 40, returned to action earlier this year after a two year hiatus. He’s on a two-fight losing streak with his latest loss coming by the hands of Chris Daukaus in September.
