At UFC 295, fans will get the night of their lives, with an epic double header, featuring Jiří Procházka and Alex Pereira clashing for 205-pound glory, and Tom Aspinall and Sergei Pavlovich trading leather for the interim heavyweight title. And we’re telling you exactly how to watch the action.
In one of the biggest events in recent memory, the four MMA superstars will battle it out in the greatest arena on the planet — Madison Square Garden. And with the iconic venue playing host to a card packed to the brim with fantastic fights, the men in the two headline bouts will put everything on the line to ensure that they walk away with the gold.
Jiří Procházka vs Alex Pereira, and Tom Aspinall vs Sergei Pavlovich top UFC 295
After Jamahal Hill vacated the light heavyweight title, the UFC set up a bout that looks guaranteed to create fireworks. With devastating power and the striking prowess to render any man who dares set foot in the cage with them unconscious, the contest between Procházka and Pereira looks to have all the ingredients of an absolute barnburner.
But before they meet, Britain’s heavyweight hope, Aspinall, will put it all on the line when he takes on Pavlovich. And while his Russian rival hits with destructive power, former middleweight champion, Michael Bisping, is convinced his countryman can emerge victorious en route to cementing his legacy as the most dominant fighter in the history of the division.
In an interview with Betway, he said: “Tom absolutely can become the best heavyweight of all time. Tom’s doing a Bisping – in terms of the short notice. But Tom’s going to surpass my career. Tom’s going to make my career look like an amateur career. Tom’s going to reign supreme in the heavyweight division for a very long time.”
So, with a sense of excitement in the air, let’s have a look at how you can tune in for an epic night of entertainment.
