Tom Aspinall proved he’s ready for a step up in competition earlier tonight (Sat., Oct. 10, 2020) at UFC Fight Island 5 live on ESPN+ from inside Flash Forum in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E., when the heavyweight prospect finished Octagon newcomer Alan Baudot via first-round TKO (elbows and punches).
Aspinall wasted no time rushing in and exchanging with Baudot. Baudot was happy to oblige and did pretty well in the clinch along the cage. That was until Aspinall secured an easy takedown and started to rain down heavy punches. Baudot covered up and the referee eventually stepped in.

With this performance, Aspinall scores his second-straight TKO win after taking out Jake Collier back in July. Aspinall is going to take his time climbing the heavyweight ranks but he looks really promising entering 2021.
