Brit UFC heavyweight Tom Aspinall managed to keep his hands busy during his recent recovery from injury… but not in the way you might expect.
Manchester's Aspinall fell to the canvas clutching his knee after just 15 seconds of his O2 Arena main event against Curtis Blaydes in July, then underwent surgery after aggravating a pre-existing injury.
Having been sidelined after surgery on the torn MCL, torn meniscus and ACL damage, the 29-year-old had a good scout of the Pornhub archives while trying to pass the time.

Having joined Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour in the build-up to UFC 286 in London, during which he will be working with the media, Aspinall wasn't shy.
When asked if he felt more positive as he nears a return to the Octagon, Aspinall told Helwani: "Yeah I think so. Last time we spoke in an interview like this I think… it was pretty close after the injury. Close to surgery.
"I was basically sat down, I was on like PornHub everyday, I got to the point where I completed it. I think I might be the only person to ever complete PornHub.

Now back in full training and targeting a summer return, which might well be on a second London card of the year, Aspinall has his eyes on #10 ranked Marcin Tybura.
Aspinall sits #6 in the rankings despite being out for action for eight months, but there is a new champion at the top of the division in the form of Jon Jones.
