The Octagon remains in Nevada for today’s UFC Vegas 40 event, a ten-bout fight card headlined by Aspen Ladd taking on Norma Dumont.
Ladd (9-1 MMA) was supposed to fight two weeks ago but she was removed from that card after missing weight for her fight against Macy Chiasson at 135lbs. The 26-year-old last competed in December of 2019, where she earned a TKO victory over Yana Kunitskaya.
Meanwhile, Norma Dumont (6-1 MMA) will enter today’s UFC Vegas 40 headliner looking to extend her current win streak to three in a row. The Brazilian last competed back in May, where she picked up a split-decision victory over former title challenger Felicia Spencer.
Tonight’s event is co-headlined by a heavyweight contest featuring former division champion Andrei Arlovski taking on Carlos Felipe.
Meanwhile, Carlos Felipe (11-1 MMA) will enter today’s UFC Vegas 40 co-main event in hopes of earning his fourth consecutive win. The Brazilian is coming off back-to-back split decision wins over Jake Collier and Justin Tafa in his most recent efforts.
