MMA Fans will only remember this fight when Jabs are being discussed as Dumount consistently connected her Jab with ease throughout the five rounds of the fight. Ladd was making a return to the Octagon after two years since undergoing a knee reconstruction surgery. With rust, Ladd was unable to connect a useful attack throughout the five rounds and when the final horn was heard, it was cleared Dumont was the winner.

The fight was scored 49-46 x2 and 48-47 by the judges, all in favour of Dumout, who is now unbeaten in three fights and her second consecutive since moving to the Featherweight division.

“I know she took the fight on short notice but I want to tell her right now that she’s a 145 [pound fighter],” Dumont said about Ladd afterwards. “She fights at 145, she’s got all the strength and power at 145 and I want her to keep fighting in this [weight class].”

There was very little activity in the first round with Dumout trying hard to establish her jab and ensuring the Ladd doesn’t go beyond her punches. The first seven minutes was a waste before Ladd pushed for a take down but failed .

“That’s what we trained for,” Dumont said about her takedown defense. “We know her strength is ground-and-pound. In order for you to take me down, it’s going to take a lot cause I’m really good in my defenses.”
