The UFC’s second trip to London, England in 2022 comes on July 23, with the show headlined by heavyweights Aspinall and Curtis Blaydes. Till anchors the co-main event alongside Sweden’s Jack “The Joker” Hermansson.
There’s no question who the British faithful will be rooting for. The official poster dropped Tuesday.

The promotion’s return to England comes after a hugely successful event in March. The first show outside of the U.S. and Abu Dhabi since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, that London card was heralded as one of the greatest UFC Fight Night events of all time. The promotion even opted to hand a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus to every fighter with a finish on the card — nine in total.
The return show on July 23 will see some familiar faces take part, including Paddy Pimblett, Molly McCann, and Muhammad Mokaev. All three were among the bonus winners in March, with Pimblett arguably stealing the show.
Darren Till will be competing for the first time since September when he takes on Hermansson. He’ll also be looking to snap a two-fight skid, while Aspinall looks for his sixth win inside the octagon — and ninth straight overall.
