By Chris Taylor - October 16, 2021

Tonight’s UFC Vegas 40 event was headlined by a key women’s featherweight bout featuring Aspen Ladd taking on Norma Dumont.


Ladd (9-2 MMA) was slated to compete two weeks ago, but was ultimately removed from that card after missing weight for her fight against Macy Chiasson at 135lbs. The 26-year-old most previously competed in December of 2019, where she earned a third-round TKO victory over Yana Kunitskaya.

Meanwhile, Norma Dumont (7-1 MMA) had entered today’s UFC Vegas 40 headliner looking to earn her third straight win. The Brazilian had last competed back in May, where she picked up a split-decision victory over former title challenger Felicia Spencer.
