After Jon Jones suffered an injury that forced a shakeup to the title picture, the UFC implemented an interim belt, picking Pavlovich (17-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) and Aspinall (13-3 MMA, 6-1 UFC) to collide in Saturday’s co-main event at Madison Square Garden.
Following a respect build up to the short-notice affair, Pavlovich and Aspinall were intense yet respectful when they came face-to-face one more time at ceremonial weigh-ins.
