UFC 295 will be taking place this weekend in New York City live from the Madison Square Garden on November 11, 2023. The five-bout main card gets started at 10 p.m. ET and will be highlighted by Jiri Prochazka vs. Michael Pereira for the UFC light heavyweight championship.
In the co-main event, it will be Tom Aspinall vs. Sergei Pavlovich for the UFC interim heavyweight championship. That fight will be fourth on the card.
Aspinall (13-3) is a slight -118 moneyline favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook. Pavlovich (18-1) is the underdog at -102.
Pavlovich enters the championship match on a six-fight win streak that dates back to April 20, 2019. He has won all six of those fights by first-round knockout. This streak includes wins over top-10 heavyweights Derrick Lewis, Curtis Blaydes and Tai Tuivasa.
Aspinall has won nine of his past ten fights and has never had a professional MMA fight go the full three rounds. His only loss during this stretch came due to a doctor’s stoppage after Aspinall suffered a knee injury against Blaydes just 15 seconds into their fight. Aspinall has notable wins against Andrei Arlovski, Serghei Spivac and Marcin Tybura.
