UFC London 2022: Volkov vs Aspinall - Live stream, fight info, spoiler-free replays and how to watch on BT Sport
The UFC is returning to London after a three-year hiatus with a must-see headline showdown between Alexander Volkov and Tom Aspinall.
It’s been a long time coming but the UFC is finally returning to London this weekend to take up residency at the iconic O2 Arena for the first time since 2019.
When is UFC London 2022: Volkov vs Aspinall?
Having been kept away while the pandemic swept the globe, the promotion has wasted no time rebooking one of the marquee shows on the MMA calendar, making a 12th trip to the British capital on Saturday 19 March.
The event will mark the first time the UFC has held an event outside of the US or Abu Dhabi’s Fight Island since the pandemic began, rewarding the promotion’s strong support for fans of the UFC this side of the Atlantic.
The event will be shown exclusively live at 6pm (8pm main card) on Saturday 19 March on BT Sport 1 HD and across our digital platforms.
Who is fighting?
As always, the event is expected to be a showcase for some of the best British talent currently plying their wares in the promotion.
But this year the calibre of talent on offer looks set to make it an even more special evening at the O2 Arena with multiple British contenders given the chance to showcase their skills on the biggest night in MMA this side of the water.
Rising heavyweight prospect Tom Aspinall is set to top the bill and fight in front of a raucous hometown crowd for the first time in the UFC, taking on the towering Russian Alexander Volkov for a place in the top five of the division.
Popular featherweight Arnold Allen looks as though he’s secured the big name he’s been crying out for to truly announce himself as a bonafide 145lb contender with a mouthwatering match-up against Dan Hooker.
We'll also see Scouse legend Paddy Pimblett in his second UFC outing, as well as Molly McCann, Paul Craig and Jai Herbert. See below for more information on the main card.
