Tom Aspinall left an interviewer speechless after asking her an X-rated question in an interview prior to UFC 295.
The Wigan-born fighter won his first ever UFC title, the Interim UFC Heavyweight Championship, by knocking out Sergei Pavlovich in just 69 seconds at the event.
Aspinall stepped in at short notice to take his position on the card after the original title bout between Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic was cancelled, with the former requiring surgery on a pectoral injury.
It was the greatest night of the 30-year-old's UFC career, and unsurprisingly earned him the 'Performance of the Night' award.
He admitted afterwards: "I've never been as scared in my life. I was sat in the changing room thinking, 'I'm not sure this is the best idea!' But it's all paid off now."
In the build-up to the fight, he took part in an interview with MMA content creator and former model Nina Drama in a video for her YouTube channel.
Drama is known for centring her interviews around controversial and non-MMA questions to fighters that you wouldn't hear in a regular interview - although Aspinall went above and beyond that with a question of his own.
He asked: "I've got a question for you. Have you ever been f***ered by an MMA fighter before?"
Drama looked shocked and appeared initially uncomfortable at the question, before replying: "Never. No."
Aspinall went on to add: "I've seen some really weird questions on your Instagram, so I thought I'm just going to throw one in there," to which Drama laughed.
She nodded, and repeated: "No, never. Never."
This was the craziest question any UFC fighter has ever asked me LOL.— Nina-Marie Daniele (@ninamdrama) November 17, 2023

In response to a comment on her YouTube video asking her about Aspinall's question, she replied: "I was not ready (three laughing emojis).
"Part of me was like is it a language barrier, but then I realised we both spoke English LMFAO all jokes tho, Tom's a funny guy!! I think people aren't used to British humor!"
