There was a lot of talk about Aspen Ladd 's first fight in nearly two years given the circumstances it was under.
Ladd was set to return two weeks ago at bantamweight against Macy Chiasson, but a weight cut that went awry forced her out of the fight. Subsequently, the MMA world started the speculation about whether Ladd should be at 135 pounds since it wasn't her first brush with a struggle to make weight.

LAS VEGAS - Norma Dumont is proud of her win over Aspen Ladd in Saturday's UFC Fight Night 195 main event.

Fighting, finally, for the first time in nearly two years - and after a failed shot at a return two weeks ago - Aspen Ladd never seemed to get started.
Consequently, Norma Dumont didn't have to do a ton of work to cruise to a unanimous decision over Ladd with a pair of 49-46 scores and a 48-47. Ladd moved up to 145 pounds two weeks after a weight cut gone wrong at bantamweight forced her removal from a fight against Macy Chiasson.
The women's featherweight bout was the UFC Fight Night 195 main event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. It streamed on ESPN+.
“I know she took the fight on short...
