Tom Aspinall will most likely return at UFC 304, scheduled to take place on the 27th of July; the news is yet to be officially announced. He could most likely fight Ciryl Gane next. Chael Sonnen is completely against the idea of a potential showdown between Ciryl Gane and Tom Aspinall because the winner of that fight will most probably face Jon Jones next, and Chael Sonnen isn’t interested in seeing a rematch between Ciryl Gane and Jon Jones.

Chael Sonnen on Tom Aspinall vs Ciryl Gane

Recently, on The ESPN show GoodGuy/BadGuy, Chael Sonnen explained why he does not want to see Tom Aspinall vs Ciryl Gane at UFC 304.

“I believe that the problem is if you do bring Ciryl back, if he wins, you put a belt around Ciryl,” Sonnen said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “If Jon Jones is agreeable, you’re going to do a rematch between Jon Jones and Ciryl.

I think that’s too tough after the performance that Ciryl gave (at UFC 285), or did not give. I just don’t think there’s any scenario where they re-do that match, and you would run into a big risk if you put the belt around him”.
