In the wake of his interim heavyweight title victory at UFC 295, Tom Aspinall made the media rounds doing interviews, but there was one message the rung loud and clear.
“I think Jon Jones should be stripped from the title to be honest, because everyone else does when they get injured like that,” Aspinall told Michael Bisping. “I don’t see why he’s still got it. I don’t understand that. I think I should be the real champion right now.”
Aspinall made a huge statement by knocking out Sergei Pavlovich in the first round a little over a week ago at UFC 295. Jones, meanwhile, is out for the next several months because of a torn pectoral tendon.
In addition to believing Jones should be stripped, Aspinall said he is will to fight Stipe Miocic while Jones recovers. Should the UFC listen and move off of the Jones vs. Miocic fight? Our “Spinning Back Clique” of Nolan King, Danny Segura and Brian “Goze” Garcia answer that question with host “Gorgeous” George Garcia.
