The Ultimate Fighting Championship Returns to day with their 40th event at the UFC Apex Facility since their pact with ESPN UFC Vegas 40 ( Fight Night 195), headlined by Aspen Ladd Vs Norma Dumout on Saturday 16th of October.
The fight was initially scheduled for an anticipated meeting between top featherweight contender Holly Holm and Norma Dumout but the first acquired a knee injury during training and got ruled out of the card, giving room for Ladd to step-in on 5-Days notice for the bout.
Ladd will be making her first main event appearance since signing with the promotion and this will mark her first appearance since her battle with scales lead to her move from Bantamweight to Featherweight. Infact, Ladd got cancelled of the UFC Vegas 38 fight card after missing weight for hear fight against Macy Chiasson.
Dumont goes in search of her third straight victory since losing her UFC debut via KO to Megan Anderson. She has picked up decision victories over Ashlee Evans-Smith and Felicia Spencer. She will be looking to add another big name to her CV.
In the Co-Main Event, former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski will look to grant Carlos Felipe his wish as he looks to make his string of victories 5 in a row. Carlos Felipe has also accumulated three straight victories and looks to climb higher in the pecking order with a notable win.
