THE stars of UFC London faced off with their opponents one final time ahead of their dust-ups tomorrow night.
MMA’s premier promotion makes its long-awaited return to London’s O2 Arena tomorrow with a card stacked full of British talent.
Topping the bill at the O2 is a heavyweight showdown between surging Brit Tom Aspinall and Russian Alexander Volkov.
And in the co-main event of the evening, Suffolk strangler Arnold Allen will bid to catapult himself into featherweight title contention with a victory over Dan Hooker.
All the fighters on the card successfully made weight in the early weigh-ins.
And they engaged in some tense face-offs at the ceremonial weigh-ins.
Before he made his way backstage, a cool, calm and collected Aspinall roared: “This is the biggest MMA event in UK history and tomorrow night we’re gonna tear it up.”
