Tom Aspinall Blasts ‘Ungrateful’ Fans Complaining About Makhachev vs Volkanovski Decision

The UFC heavyweight prospect is tired of listening to the constant gripes of some fans about the main event from last weekend.

Tom Aspinall does not seem to share many mixed martial arts (MMA) fans’ sentiment that the decision between Islam Makhachev and Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 284 this past weekend was a bit controversial. Makhachev and Volkanovski headlined the pay-per-view (PPV) from Australia this past weekend in one of the most high-stakes UFC main events the promotion has seen in recent years.

In addition to being champions at 145 and 155 pounds, both men were also ranked as the world’s No. 1 and No. 2 pound-for-pound fighters respectively. After five rounds of fighting, Makhachev was awarded the decision victory and retained his lightweight championship. He has also claimed the title of No. 1-ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world. However, many have contested that they believe Volkanovski should have been awarded the victory on the scorecards.

Tom Aspinall Blasts “Ungrateful” Fans

While many spend time debating who should’ve been awarded the decision win, some such as UFC heavyweight Tom Aspinall is simply enjoying the brilliant display of world-class MMA that we got to witness inside the Octagon.

Aspinall recently took to Twitter and took aim at “ungrateful” fans who are spending their time complaining rather than enjoying the historic bout they got the opportunity to witness.

Aspinall hasn’t fought since his July TKO loss to Curtis Blaydes, a fight in which he suffered a knee injury in just 15 seconds that forced the fight to be stopped. It resulted in Aspinall’s first MMA defeat in six years, snapping his eight-fight win streak.

Currently, he is rehabbing his injury in anticipation of returning to Octagon action in the near future.
