UFC Vegas 40: Norma Dumont piles up the points on Aspen Ladd

Norma Dumont used some crisp striking and a disappointing performance from opponent Aspen Ladd to take a comfortable victory at UFC Vegas 40 Saturday night.

Dumont (7-1-0) took advantage of a Ladd (9-2-0) who took the fight on short notice was ineffective on the feet for the majority of the five round contest and struggled to get the fight to the ground.

Only late in the fourth and moments in the final round did Ladd enjoy any significant time on the mat.

Meanwhile, Dumont outstruck Ladd en route to a 49-46, 49-46, 48-47 decision.

The win was Dumont’s third consecutive while Ladd has now lost two of her last three fights.

Jim Miller, Danaa Batgerel, Nate Landwehr, and Bruno Silva earned performance of the night and a $50,000 USD apiece. There was no Fight of the Night award.

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card.
