UFC Fight Night 195: Norma Dumont defeats Aspen Ladd with remarkable ease

Aspen Ladd, fighting for the first time in over two years – and following a botched return attempt two weeks ago – never appeared to get going.

As a result, Norma Dumont (7-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) didn’t have to put in a lot of effort to defeat Ladd (9-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC) by unanimous decision with two scores of 49-46 and a 48-47. Ladd went up to 145 pounds two weeks after being forced to withdraw from a fight against Macy Chiasson due to a weight cut gone awry at bantamweight.

At the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, the women’s featherweight match was the main event of UFC Fight Night 195. It was available to watch on ESPN+.

“I know she took the fight on short notice. But she’s a 145er. She’s got all the strength, and I want her to keep fighting in this (division),” Dumont said through a translator in her post-fight interview. “That’s what we trained for – (to not get taken down). We know her strength is ground-and-pound.”

Dumont pounded her jab early, while Ladd skirted the outside looking for openings over the first two minutes. They exchanged right hands just over the halfway point, although it wasn’t much of a true interchange. Ladd delivered her second punch of the round with 20 seconds left, and it drew Dumont’s attention to the point where she motioned her to do it again. But it was a relatively boring first round for Dumont, who relied heavily on his jab.

The narrative was the same ninety seconds into the second round – Dumont’s jabs and little activity from Ladd. She finally threw a kick, and Ladd shot for a takedown two minutes later. She shoved Dumont against the cage and attempted to drag her down, but Dumont circled back to the center.

In the third, Ladd was still unable to respond to Dumont’s jab. Dumont didn’t have to do much – her jab didn’t have to hit a high percentage of the time because Ladd wasn’t responding. Ladd tried to take Dumont down again just before the halfway point, pressing her into the fence. Dumont, on the other hand, defended once more and returned to the middle with two minutes remaining. Late in the round, Ladd tried a new combination, but it was his first time.

Ladd’s coaches confronted her in the corner between the third and fourth rounds, asking what she was doing and telling her she was down three rounds. They warned her not to be irresponsible, but that she needed an unquestionable conclusion to win the fight.

In the fourth, Ladd pushed forward and landed a punch before pressing Dumont into the fence once more. She attempted for more than a minute to get Dumont to the canvas, but she couldn’t. The bout was brought back to the middle ninety seconds into the round. Dumont delivered a punch in the middle of the frame, but Ladd’s forward momentum caused him to back up. With about two minutes gone, Ladd delivered a head kick, but Dumont quickly secured a takedown and proceeded to work on Ladd from guard. For the rest of the round, Ladd was able to reverse the position and swung away.

Ladd blitzed ahead in the final round and knotted Dumont up. Dumont, on the other hand, twisted her around and stayed on her feet. They switched positions on the fence, and Ladd stayed after a takedown in the hopes of bringing the battle to the mat, where she’s been known to finish fights. With about three minutes left, Ladd landed an elbow, but it was game over.

In between rounds, her trainers continued to chastise her and wondered what she was waiting for. Ladd put in her greatest performance of the bout in the fifth round, practically all of it in clinch positions. However, she never put Dumont in any real danger, and all Dumont had to do was stay on his feet, play defense, and cruise to victory.

[Verse 1]
Baby you’re no good
‘Cause they warned me ’bout your type girl, I’ve been ducking left and right
Baby you’re no good
Think I fell for you, I fell for you, I fell for you

[Pre-Chorus]
You got me puttin’ time in, time in
Nobody got me feeling this way
You probably think I’m lying, lying
I’m used to bitches comin’ right ‘way

[Chorus]
You got me touchin’ on your body
You got me touchin’ on your body
To say that we’re in love is dangerous
But girl I’m so glad we’re acquainted, oh
I’ll get you touchin’ on your body
I’ll get you touchin’ on your body
I know I’d rather be complacent
But girl I’m so glad we’re acquainted
We’re acquainted

[Verse 2]
Baby you’re no good
All my niggas think I’m crazy’ cause I’m thinkin’ ’bout us lately
But really if I could
I’d forget about you, ‘get about you, ‘get about you

[Pre-Chorus]
You got me puttin’ time in, time in
Nobody got me feeling this way
You probably think I’m lyin’, lyin’
I’m used to bitches comin’ right ‘way

[Chorus]
You got me touchin’ on your body
You got me touchin’ on your body
To say that we’re in love is dangerous
But girl I’m so glad we’re acquainted, oh

I know I’d rather be complacent
But girl I’m so glad we’re acquainted
We’re acquainted

[Verse 3]
Momma called me cryin’, cryin’, cryin’, cryin’
‘Cause I won’t find somebody that’s real (she wants somebody that’s real,) yeah
‘Cause every time I try to, try to, try to run
The fast life keeps gaining on me (the fast life keeps gaining on me,) sh-yeah
But ever since I met you (ever since I met you)
I couldn’t believe what you did
So comfort me babe, ain’t no rush from me babe
(Woooooh)

[Chorus]
I’ll keep on touchin’ on your body
I’ll keep on touchin’ on your body
To say that we’re in love is dangerous
But girl I’m so glad we’re acquainted, oh
I got you touchin’ on your body (touchin’ on your body)
I got you touchin’ on your body (touchin’ on your body)
I know I’d rather be complacent
But girl I’m so glad we’re acquainted
We’re acquainted

[Outro]
I’m not tryna talk at all
‘Cause I’m tryna love you crazy
Put some more inside your cup
And drink ’til you numb the pain
I got you touchin’ on your body
These girls keep touchin’ on their body
They got accustomed to the life we live
These girls born in the ’90s are dangerous
I got ’em thinkin’ that they want me
Although they know they not the only
I got ’em wanting to embrace their sins
These girls born in the ’90s are dangerous

[Verse 3: Drake]
Whoa, all these broken hearts on that pole
Man, if pole dancing’s an art, you know how many fuckin’ artists I know?
Got some new bills in the mail, got some big favors I owe
Got some good things ahead of me when these bad bitches let go
Well girl let’s go, walk your broken heart through that door
Sit your sexy ass on that couch
Wipe that lipstick off of your mouth
I take it slow
She in love with my crew
She said make enough so I can try some
I thought taking drugs just ain’t you, be you
Yeah girl, just be you
And I do this shit for my hometown, it been going down, it ain’t new
That’s that north north, that up top
That OVO and that XO
Your girlfriend at our next show
But it’s all good, don’t stress though
First night fuck, never really planned it
Take a deep breath, no one need to panic
Lips so French, ass so Spanish
She don’t really like attention, I don’t know if she gon’ manage out here
But she got me all up in my zone
Said she like the view I got in this place, shit I did all of that on my own
Aw yeah

The Weeknd – King of the Fall lyrics

“The Weeknd – King of the Fall lyrics”

[Verse 1]
I’m Addy’d up, add it up, I just ate a plate for breakfast
Put it in a cup, then I mix it up with Texas
Chest feeling heavy like a midget on my necklace
Bitches that we came with got all of your bitches jealous (oh!)
‘Bout to leave the crib with a couple of my pirates
Driving by the streets we used to walk through like a triumph
Mix it in a potion like a science
That liquid G diet got a nigga so quiet
‘Cause the shit so strong, got me feeling like I’m dyin’
Shit so raw, nothing else can get me higher
Only time you see me’s when I’m balling with my niggas
‘Cause my life too private, my ride too private (oh!)
My flight too private, my shows so riot
My jaw so tired, I go all night in my city ’til the fall
Then it’s time for me to fly her
I got a girl at home even though she ain’t mine yet

[Chorus]
And she gon’ give it up ’cause she know I might like it
She gon’ give it up ’cause she know I might like it
She gon’ give it up ’cause she know I might like it
She gon’ give it up ’cause she know I might like it
Baby girl, you know what I like
Baby, you know just what I like
Baby, you know what I like, like, like, like, like

[Verse 2]
Don’t be mad, let her get hers
Don’t be mad, let her get hers
She made her own luck, she don’t give a fuck
She’s tryna have fun, take a break from the love
Man, your girl so bad, let me get her
Your girl so bad, let me get her
I make my own luck, I make that pussy talk
On call till the fall, he can like it or not, nigga, back the fuck up
If you ain’t with me, motherfucker, you against me
If you ain’t complimentin’ nigga, you offendin’
I’ve been out here last year wasting hella time
XO is the only time invested
Them Fall shows every year like a birthday
And I’ma do it every year in my birthplace
And I ain’t been this gone since Thursday
I never said that I’d be sober in the first place

[Chorus]
And she gon’ give it up ’cause she know I might like it
She gon’ give it up ’cause she know I might like it
She gon’ give it up ’cause she know I might like it
She gon’ give it up ’cause she know I might like it
Baby girl, you know what I like
Baby, you know just what I like
Baby, you know what I like, like, like, like, like

[Post-Hook]
Baby girl, you know what I like
Baby, you know just what I like, mm

[Verse 3]
I just passed that liquor fell off stage
Just sold out the O2 at my own pace
I can say that I’m attached to nobody
I’ve been getting paper while these niggas tryna stop me
Shout my nigga Doc, that’s a mentor
Had some bad business, nothing personal
But now that word out that we back
On some young Quincy Jones, dark skin Michael Jackson
And these the motherfuckers that they packaged
Their new shit all be soundin’ like my past shit
Bring your girl to my show, give her floor seats
Then she go downtown like she owe me
XO, XO, XO
Mix it up, pour it up, take it down slow
This my sound, nigga, fuck your sound
Did it from the ground, ask around, bitch
When I touch down, I’ma shake shit up
Fuck your new man, I’ma break it up
He can come back when I go on the road
But that pussy mine for the next three months
’Cause the kid back, kid back, kid back
Cop ten whips for my niggas when we land
Queen Street nigga making money overseas
Had a few more debts, I’ma pay it all in cash
Shout out XO, shout out to the boy
Broke bread on tour, man, it’s all love now
Shout my nigga Stix, doing good in these streets
Bet he popping more bottles than us right now
Reason why they stressing, city never sunny
When the kid come through with more niggas than Apollo
But ain’t shit funny, can’t nobody stop me
All my hoes are trained, I make all of them swallow

[Outro]
All of them swallow, all of them swallow
All of them swallow, I make all of them swallow
All of them swallow, all of them swallow
All of them swallow, I make all of them swallow
All of them swallow, all of them swallow
All of them swallow, I make all of them swallow
All of, all of, all of them swallow
All of them swallow, I make all of them swallow
