Set to debut in the UFC, again, Aspen Ladd (5-0) will travel halfway around the globe to meet Lina ‘Elbow Princess’ Lansberg (7-2) at UFC Fight Night 118 in Gdansk, Poland.
During the UFC’s summer extravaganza, more commonly known as: International Fight Week, Ladd was expected to go head-to-head with Jessica ‘Evil’ Eye during The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 25 Finale. An untimely illness corked Ladd’s explosive entrance into the UFC’s women’s bantamweight division.
Though Lansberg is recognized as ‘Elbow Princess,’ Ladd smashed her way through Invicta Fighting Championships’ circuit using the attack of an alchemist, training with mettle alongside her squadron in El Dorado Hills, California: MMAGOLD.
Ladd’s domination in the all-female fight league quickly gained traction as fight fans witnessed her development firsthand by logging into the UFC’s membership stream: UFC Fight Pass. Each visit to the cage highlighted a new facet to Ladd’s game. Early in her career, she focused on flattening opponents against the canvas and smashing them through it; thereafter, such as in her most recent encounter versus Sijara Eubanks at IFC 21, a greater propensity to slug it out on the feet was showcased.
On October 21, 2017, Ladd returns to the UFC’s digital stream to serve Lansberg her second loss in the UFC, remaining undefeated and leaving Europe with a swath of new, loyal subjects that will follow her rise to the 135-pound throne.
