Tom Aspinall accused Sergei Pavlovich of refusing to fight

UFC heavyweight number five, Tom Aspinall, explained why, after an early victory over Marcina Tybura, he announced his desire to fight the winner of the duel between Cyril Gan and Sergey Spivak, instead of throwing down a challenge to the Russian puncher Sergey Pavlovich, who occupies the first line in the division.

“I don’t care, I’m ready to fight anyone, I just don’t think this fight makes sense now,” the Briton said at a press conference after the UFC Fight Night 224 tournament in London. “I’m going to take a daring trip to Paris, have a couple of beers, eat a couple of frog legs and have some fun. I want to watch the fight between Gan and Spivak, to take part in this event – ​​I think it will work great for all of us.”

“As for Pavlovich, I had to fight him twice, but he refused both times. I’m not saying that he is afraid of me – I’m just saying it like it is. In any case, we will all fight each other, so it’s just a matter of order.”

Recall that the fight between Aspinall and Tybura, who headed the next British event of the organization, ended at the 73rd second with the victory of the British by technical knockout, and Gan and Spivak will meet on September 2 at UFC Fight Night 226 in Paris.
