In the first main-card event of UFC Fight Island 5, Tom Aspinall will meet Alan Baudot in a heavyweight bout live from Fight Island in Abu Dhabi this Saturday and also available on ESPN+.
8-2 in his MMA career, Tom Aspinall, 27, is entering this bout as a heavy favorite. Making his UFC debut earlier this year, Aspinall left a memorable performance in the octagon with a first-round knockout. The fight didn’t even go a full minute as Aspinall threw ten punches and connected one enough to knock out Jake Collier.
He’s looked great and has won seven of his eight fights via knockout. He’s clearly aggressive, but he’ll be taking on another up-and-coming heavyweight fighter.
At 8-1 Alan Baudot, 32, will be making his UFC debut. The unknown surrounding Baudot doesn’t favor him for the bout’s moneyline, but he is a strong 6-foot-3 foe that has seven knockouts in his eight MMA victories. Baudot did fight in TKO 47 back in April 2019, an event headlined by Charles Jourdain, who just drew with Joshua Culibao on UFC Fight Island 4.
