Tom Aspinall Demands Jon Jones’ UFC Heavyweight Title Be Stripped After Interim Triumph
In a lightning-fast bout at UFC 295 earlier this month, interim UFC heavyweight champion Tom Aspinall obliterated Sergei Pavlovich in just 69 seconds. Aspinall secured the interim belt due to Jon Jones’ injury, which led to the cancellation of Jones’ initial title defense against Stipe Miocic. Now, Aspinall is calling for Jones to be stripped of the heavyweight title, believing he should rightfully be the champion.
Aspinall’s dominant victory showcased his prowess in the octagon, leaving no doubt about his capabilities. With such an impressive win, he asserts his claim to the actual championship, considering the circumstances surrounding Jones’ injury.
Speaking on former middleweight champion Michael Bisping’s YouTube channel, Aspinall expressed his belief that Jon Jones should undergo title stripping, emphasizing that it is a standard practice when fighters are sidelined due to injury.
