Aspen Ladd v Norma Dumont goes down at the UFC Apex on Saturday, October 16.
Following Holly Holm’s withdrawal last week, the replacement headliner is now Aspen Ladd vs. Norma Dumont.
Some of these athletes are not as well known to the casual fans, but that doesn't mean it won't be a cracking fight.
What are the current odds for Aspen Ladd v Norma Dumont?
Here we go:
Ladd to Win -120
Dumont to Win +105
Ladd and Dumont are pretty well matched, Ladd is ranked #3 in the women’s bantamweight but Dumont is currently unranked by the promotion.
Dumont’s last fight was a split decision win over Felicia Spencer at 145-pounds but the women’s featherweight division does'nt really have enough athletes to rank.
I feel it could be Dumont who comes out of this with the win. Aspen Ladd was suspended by the UFC in 2019 following an awful weight cut. More recently, when facing Macy Chiasson, (her then opponent) pulled out of the fight due to another botched weight cut that drew critism from Misha Tate and others.
There is no doubting that Aspen Ladd is as tough as they come, you can't critise a fighter in any part of their camp unless you have been through it yourself.
It's the weight cutting and everything that leads up to a disaster like that that makes me think that this will go Dumont's way.
My prediction is Dumont by KO/TKO. Current odds and best bet on that is Dumont to Win (+105)
