UFC Fight Night 208 Results – Main Event

Fighting as a pro for over eight years, Curtis Blaydes has only lost to two different opponents. One of those is the current heavyweight champion, Francis Ngannou, whom he has lost to two different times during Ngannou’s run to the top. After each loss to Ngannou, Blaydes would put together at least four straight wins before suffering another setback. After the first loss to Ngannou, he won his next six fights in a row, however the second of those six fights was overturned to a no contest after Blaydes tested positive for marijuana.

After the second loss to Ngannou, Blaydes won his next four straight outings before suffering his most recent loss to Derrick Lewis. Since then, Blaydes has put together two straight wins including a unanimous decision win over Jairzinho Rozenstruik at UFC 266. In his most recent fight, Blaydes defeated Chris Daukaus by second round TKO in their main event matchup at UFC on ESPN 33.

As for Aspinall, he enters this fight with an undefeated record in the UFC. He made his debut in 2020 at UFC on ESPN 14 where he defeated Jake Collier by TKO in just forty-five seconds. His sophomore outing in the UFC produced another quick TKO win as he defeated Alan Baudot in just over a minute and a half at UFC Fight Night 179. Aspinall’s third win in the octagon was against former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski. He won that fight by submitting the former champion in the second round with a rear naked choke.

After that win, Aspinall won his fourth straight fight in the UFC with yet another finish as this time he defeated Sergey Spivak halfway through the first round of their fight at UFC Vegas 36. Finally, in Aspinall’s most recent outing he fought in his first UFC main event where he submitted Alexander Volkov in the first round at UFC Fight Night 204.

UFC Fight Night 208 Results – Co-Main Event

In Saturday’s co-main event, Jack Hermansson was scheduled to face Darren Till, however, Till was forced out of the fight and on short notice, in steps Chris Curtis.

Since he put together four straight wins from 2018-2019, Hermansson has since out together a record of 2-3. His four fight win streak was broken in the main event of UFC Fight Night 160 when Jared Cannonier defeated him in the second round by TKO. After that, he was able to pick up a submission win over Kelvin Gastelum at UFC Fight Night 172, but then he would go on to be defeated by Marvin Vettori by unanimous decision in his next fight.

Following the loss, he was able to bounce back again with a win as he defeated Edmen Shahbazyan by unanimous decision. Unfortunately, in his most recent fight, Hermansson suffered a split decision loss to Sean Strickland in the main event of UFC Vegas 47.

Coming into this short notice fight against Hermansson, Curtis has won his last eight fights in a row, with the last three of those being in the UFC. Curtis appeared on the Contender Series in 2018 and produced a win on the show, however he would not earn a UFC contract.

It was not until 2021 that Curtis made his UFC debut when he defeated Phil Hawes by first round knockout at UFC 268. In his second UFC fight, Curtis picked up another finish as he beat Brendan Allen by second round TKO in their fight at UFC Vegas 44. In Curtis’ most recent outing, he picked up his third win in the UFC and eight straight overall when he defeated Rodolfo Vieira by unanimous decision at UFC Vegas 57.

 UFC Fight Night 208 Results – Main Card

Kicking things off for the main card of UFC Fight Night 208 will be a fight in the light heavyweight division between two top-ten fighters, Paul Craig and Volkan Oezdemir. Paul Craig has won his last four in a row coming into this fight as he owns wins over Gadzhimurad Antigulov, Mauricio RuaJamahal Hill, and Nikita Krylov during that time. As for Oezdemir, he is coming off of two straight losses to Jiri Prochazka and Magomed Ankalaev.

Following that fight will be a matchup in the women’s flyweight division as another of England’s own, Molly McCann, faces off against Hannah Goldy.

Goldy will be entering the fight off a win of her own as she comes in following a submission win over Emily Whitmire at UFC Vegas 37.

The third fight on the main card features another light heavyweight matchup as Nikita Krylov takes on Alexander Gustafsson. Krylov looks to snap a two fight losing streak in this fight as he is coming off of losses to Magomed Ankalaev at UFC Vegas 20, followed by a submission loss to Paul Craig at UFC Fight Night 204. Back in 2019, Alexander Gustafsson retired from MMA following a loss to Anthony Smith which came after Gustafsson failed to capture the vacant light heavyweight championship against Jon Jones. He cut his retirement short in 2020 when he returned and made his heavyweight debut against former heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum. He would end up losing that fight by submission in round one making it his third straight loss.

Finally, before the co-main event, another favorite of England will be fighting as Paddy Pimblett takes on Jordan Leavitt. Pimblett will be looking for his third win in the UFC as he has won back-to-back over Luigi Vendramini in his debut followed by Rodrigo Vargas at UFC Fight Night 204. Leavitt will also be coming into the fight on a win streak as he holds recent wins over Matt Sayles at UFC Vegas 45 and Trey Ogden at UFC Vegas 51.
