Spivak was filling in on short notice, but he had absolutely nothing for Aspinall. The English contender controlled the range, scored some great combinations, and landed a beautiful elbow off the clinch just over two minutes into the fight. Spivak fell to the canvas and Aspinall jumped on top for a few insurance shots and the finish.
