UFC Fight Night 185 proved to be a big night for two rising heavyweight prospects, as Philadelphia’s Chris Daukaus and England’s Tom Aspinall claimed eye-catching finishes of Aleksei Oleinik and Andrei Arlovski, respectively.
After such impressive performances against seasoned, respected opposition, thoughts have immediately turned to what might be next for both men, with Aspinall even suggesting during his post-fight press conference that the pair could face off in an upcoming bout later this year.
But is matching two promising up-and-comers a wise move in a division packed with veteran contenders? Should they be made to face each other later this year, or would UFC matchmaker Mick Maynard be better off building their careers separately at this stage?
