UFC Looking To Book Tom Aspinall vs. Shamil Abdurkahimov For March 19th Event

UFC is attempting to book heavyweights Tom Aspinall and Shamil Adburakhimov for their March 19th event, per a report from Brett Okamoto of ESPN.

Should the fight be finalized, it would join a card that doesn’t have a location confirmed at the moment. The fight is the first to be reported for a March 19th card.

Aspinall’s UFC run has consisted of four fast wins since his 2020 debut. The rising heavyweight last fought in September, defeating Serghei Spivac within a round with strikes.

Aspinall’s prior appearance was his first UFC win via submission, defeating veteran Andrei Arlovski with a rear naked choke in February.

Abdurakhimov lost in his return to the cage two months back, getting finished by Chris Daukaus. The veteran’s previous fight was also a loss, dropping a bout back in 2019 to Curtis Blaydes.
