On the heels of Tom Aspinall's first round TKO over Marcin Tybura at UFC London, there's already chatter about the victor getting a title shot against Jon Jones.


Most expect Aspinall, who is coming off his first fight since a lengthy injury, will need another marquee victory before he gets a matchup versus Jones.

Regardless, jumped on the possibility, wasting no time in setting odds for a potential Aspinall vs. Jones bout. Here are the opening numbers:

Tom Aspinall +170

Jon Jones -200

"It's been a really tough year for me," said Aspinall, who tore his right MCL and meniscus and damaged his ACL against Blaydes on July 23, 2022. "I wasn't myself last year. This was a whole new version of me. ... I'm different now. My mind is different, my body is different. And I'm going all the way."

ESPN has Aspinall ranked No. 5 in the world at heavyweight.  The 30-year-old has finished all six of his UFC wins, five of them in the first round.

UFC President Dana White had already hinted at the possibility of a title bout for Aspinall prior to Saturday night's fight.

“Imagine if we could end up with an England vs. Jon Jones fight,” White said.
