10 British MMA Stars You Need To Know

10. Tom Aspinall

Standing at 6'5" and weighing in at a monstrous 250 lbs, Tom Aspinall already has one game-changing attribute on his side. He's a force of nature.

Making his amateur debut back in 2013, the Greater Manchester starlet made short work of his rivals in his first five bouts. He then made the leap up to the professional world and carried on that winning momentum with three first round stoppages.

He's since suffered the odd loss here or there, but overall Aspinall tends to stop his opponents in their tracks and he likes to get the job done early with those devastating bombs he throws. His timing is excellent and he moves like a Middleweight, which is a combination that few have found a way of dealing with.

Dana White finally came calling in late 2019 and Aspinall now looks set to take on Jake Collier in his UFC debut at UFC Fight Night 171. All eyes will be on the young Brit who has built up a strong reputation off the back of murdering his rivals before they even know what's happened to them.

Is this Aspinall's time to become the next big British sensation? We'll find out come 21 March.
