TL;DR news on Curtis Blaydes at August 27, 2023

Blaydes took a slower approach, showing little emotion as he stepped inside the cage and faced off with Aspinall. Curtis Blaydes defeated Tom Aspinall via TKO at the 0:15 mark of the first round after Aspinall suffered an apparent knee injury in the UFC London main event Saturday. Blaydes entered Saturday's bout on the heels of a knockout victory over Chris Daukaus in a March headliner. That is exactly what is happening here as Curtis opened as a dog and is now on the verge of closing as a favorite. Blaydes, who received some boos from the fans, said: "I'm feeling good. A solid victory over Blaydes tonight could very well bag him a title eliminator fight, although he's refusing to think of anything other than having his hand raised.
