Willing to face the best in the MMA business, Tom aspinall does not refuse to imagine duels that will only remain in the thoughts of combat fans. Present in the heavy weight (up to 120,2kg.) category that Daniel Cormier reigned, the Englishman adopted a sincere stance when suggesting a scenario of possible confrontation when the commentator was at the height of his career.

“You know what, I say that all the time. I always say when I see 'DC' (Cormier). I think he's an absolute nightmare matchup for me. He's strong, he's a good wrestler and he's the one who comes at it. He would be a very, very difficult challenge for me. But, I believe I have the power to knock out anyone. I think I could beat him. But theoretically he’s a terrible fight for me”, declared Aspinall on his social networks.
