Tom Aspinall has outlined his plans to fight at UFC 300 after his explosive win over Sergei Pavlovich.
It took Aspinall just 69 seconds to knock out the Russian in front of a sold-out Maddison Square Garden, as he became only the third British fighter to win a UFC championship.
After admitting that he was struggling to find his range during during the opening exchanges, Aspinall used a deadly combination to send Pavlovich hurtling to the canvas.
Lgendary UFC fighter Jon Jones subsequently responded to the Englishman's victory, congratulating him on his performance amid rumours that they could jump in the cage together soon.

When quizzed on what was running through his head when he delivered the knock-out blow to Pavlovich, Aspinall explained: "I've never been that nervous before in my life.
"I felt like I couldn't get my range with him properly at first. I remember he hit me with a shot and my gum shield came out. I can't even remember the rest, to be honest. I'd have to watch it back."
Aspinall then opened up on his fears before the fight, adding: "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."
He then went on to detail his plans for the future, claiming he was aiming to fight on the highly anticipated UFC 300 card.
"Now it's just a bout legacy," he said. "I want to be the best heavyweight ever now. I want to fight on UFC 300. That's my goal. I think that's in the summertime."
