April 6, 2021
UFC ladies’s bantamweight contenders will collide this summer time when Aspen Ladd makes her return to the Octagon towards Macy Chiasson.
ESPN’s Brett Okamoto was the primary to report that Ladd will probably be making her comeback struggle towards Chiasson at a UFC Combat Night time occasion scheduled for July 24. Ladd’s head coach at MMAGOLD Jim Wolf just lately talked about that Ladd was trying to return on the July 10 UFC 264 pay-per-view card headlined by the trilogy struggle between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier. As an alternative, Ladd winds up on the July 24 occasion that takes place two weeks later towards Chiasson. It’s a battle between two of the top-10 ranked ladies’s bantamweights within the UFC and the winner will shut in on a title shot.
Ladd (9-1) is coming off of a protracted layoff, having final fought in December 2019 towards Yana Kunitskaya in a superb efficiency that noticed her win by way of third-round TKO. Simply 26 years previous, Ladd is the No. 3 ranked ladies’s bantamweight within the UFC. She made her promotional debut again in 2017 and picked up a TKO win over Lina Lansberg earlier than selecting up a TKO win over Tonya Evinger in her subsequent struggle. She then gained a unanimous determination over Sijara Eubanks in a “Combat of the Night time” efficiency earlier than dropping a controversial TKO loss to Germaine de Randamie. After that, she beat Kunitskaya and appeared destined for one more high opponent, however she has been out with an ACL damage for the final yr.
Chiasson (7-1) is the No. 9 ranked ladies’s bantamweight within the UFC. The 29-year-old American gained “The Final Fighter” season 28 in 2018 and has since gone 5-1 total within the UFC with wins over Marion Reneau, Shanna Younger, Sarah Moras, Gina Mazany, and Pannie Kianzad, along with her lone loss within the UFC coming towards the aforementioned Lansberg. With a win right here over Ladd, Chiasson will strengthen her argument to leap into the 135lbs division’s elite.
