UFC Vegas 40: 'Ladd vs Dumont' Live Results and Highlights

Chris Taylor - October 16, 2021

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.

UFC Vegas 40 weigh-in results: Headliners on point but one fight scratched

Adam D Martin - October 15, 2021

The official weigh-ins for UFC Vegas 40 took place on Friday in Las Vegas, and 21 of the 22 fighters scheduled to compete have made weight. Unfortunately, one of the fights was scratched due to non-COVID 19 health issues when Julian Marquez did not weigh-in for his middleweight fight against Jordan Wright. This means that this exciting UFC Vegas 40 fight has been canceled from tomorrow’s event.

Norma Dumont calls for interim featherweight title fight against Holly Holm with win at UFC Vegas 40

Adam D Martin - October 15, 2021

Women’s 145lbs fighter Norma Dumont called for an interim featherweight title fight against Holly Holm with a win at UFC Vegas 40. Dumont fights in the main event this weekend against Aspen Ladd in a rare women’s featherweight bout in the UFC. Originally, Dumont was set to take on the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holm, but after Holm pulled out with an injury, Ladd stepped up a weight class on short notice to take the fight. Given that the women’s featherweight division is by far the most shallow weight class in the UFC, the winner of Dumont vs. Ladd will surely be close to a title shot against the champion, Amanda Nunes.
