UFC London is back with Heavyweight action live from the O2 Arena on July 22, as Tom Aspinall makes his return to the Octagon where he is set to face Martin Tybura in a main event that is sure to be fireworks! Main card action kicks off on Saturday at 3pm ET / 12pm PT.
Tom Aspinall (-440) vs. Marcin Tybura (+330)
Tom Aspinall returns to the 02 Arena in another UFC London main event. Exactly 364 days ago, we witnessed the freak accident of Aspinall’s knee giving out against Curtis Blaydes within the first 15 seconds. Now Aspinall is fully recovered and is looking for vengeance.
Marcin Tybura is tough, but he does not handle raw power well. Tybura has gotten knocked out by some of the hardest hitters in the heavyweight division. Aspinall hits like a truck, plus he is well-versed on the ground. Even if Tybura can withstand the onslaught, Aspinall will take him down and submit him.
There are plenty of reasons why Tom Aspinall is a 4-1 favorite. Basically comes down to the fact that he is better in every aspect. If your book allows it, bet on Aspinall by way of finish.
Bet: Tom Aspinall
Jai Herbert (+100) vs. Fares Ziam (-120)
Since arriving at the UFC, Jai Herbert imminently got thrown to the wolves. Herbert is (2-3-1) in the UFC thus far, but he has the skill sets to break into the top 15.
People forget, but Herbert dropped Ilia Topuria when they fought in 2022. A fight against Fares Ziam is exactly what Herbet needs to get back on track. Short and sweet I love the slight underdog value on Jai Herbert.
Bet: Jai Herbert
Marc Diakiese (+160) vs. Joel Alvarez (-190)
After writing for two years, there comes a point where some fighters make a never bet on again list. Marc Diakiese has found himself on that list after his abomination of a performance against Michael Johnson.
On the other hand, Joel Alvarez has been treating our pockets well over the years. After correctly predicting the upset against Joe Duffy, I have advised you to bet on Alvarez in every fight since. (We have come a long way from the Alvarez vs. Duffy breakdown)
Diakiese can start round one hot, which could present a phenomenal opportunity to live bet on Alvarez. After round 1 Diakiese tends to fade. Then he starts throwing outlandish attacks that waste his gas tank even more. Joel Alvarez is the more intelligent fighter, which results in a no-brainer bet.
Bet: Joel Alvarez
