UFC Announces Andrei Arlovski-Tom Aspinall Heavyweight Booking for Feb. 20

By Tristen Critchfield Jan 5, 2021


Former heavyweight champ Andrei Arlovski will square off against rising prospect Tom Aspinall at UFC Fight Night on Feb. 20.

The Las Vegas-based promotion announced the matchup on Tuesday. UFC Fight Night is headlined by a heavyweight clash between Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis, but an official location has yet to be revealed for the event.

A veteran of 32 UFC bouts, Arlovski has been victorious in three of his last four promotional appearances. The 41-year-old Belarusian went 2-0 in 2020, posting unanimous decision triumphs against Philipe Lins and Tanner Boser. Prior to that, Arlovski was winless in four fights from June 2018 to November 2019.

Aspinall, a former Cage Warriors standout, enters the matchup with Arlovski on a five-bout winning streak that includes first-round stoppages of Jake Collier and Alan Baudot in his first two UFC appearances. The 28-year-old Englishman is 9-2 as a professional and has finished all of his victories inside the distance.
