Two ranked middleweights face off at UFC Vegas 36, as Englishman Tom Aspinall takes on Moldovan Serghei ‘The Polar Bear’ Spivac.
Aspinall has looked unstoppable of late, notching six consecutive victories, including his first three UFC contests. Of those wins, five came by first-round finish, and his most recent victory over Andrei Arlovski, only lasted 69 seconds into round two. He has been winning in convincing fashion, which has secured him as the current number 13 ranked middleweight contender.
Since joining the UFC, Spivac holds a 4-2 record, winning his last three. This will be his third fight of the year, after he defeated Jared Vanderaa by second round KO in February, then Alexei Oleinik by decision in June. The Polar Bear holds a 13-2 record, and 11 of those wins have been finishes, five by knockout and six via submission, showing his versatility.
