    Surging heavyweight contender Tom Aspinall knows a thing or two about headlining the arena having topped the bill for the UFC's last two visits to London.

    And he's encouraged Britain's second UFC champion to drink in the special atmosphere at the North Greenwich dome.

    He said: "I'd just tell him to take it [all] in and enjoy it. You don't get many of these opportunities.

    "It's a big deal to main event in your home country, it's massive.

    "And to have your home fans on your side, you might [only] get two, three or four chances to do it in your whole career.

    "So go out there and enjoy, the same as you do every fight. It's no different to any of your other fights. Take it for what it is, it's just a fight.

    "Everyone is there who you love, so try and enjoy this time. Don't put too much pressure on yourself and enjoy it."
