Norma Dumont defeated Aspen Ladd by unanimous decision in their women’s featherweight bout Saturday night at UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas.

Dumont earned her third consecutive win, 49-46, 49-46, 48-47.

Ladd made her featherweight debut, the fight’s third choice after Miesha Tate (COVID-19) and Holly Holm (knee injury) were forced to pull out of the bout.

“I know she took the fight on short notice but I want to tell her right now that she’s a 145 (pound fighter),” Dumont said about Ladd. “She fights at 145, she’s got all the strength and power at 145 and I want her to keep fighting in this (weight class).”

Ladd controlled the ground but Dumont landed too many strikes. Dumont finished with 113 strikes to Ladd’s 86, including 65-33 signature strikes.

In earlier action, Andrei Arlovski defeated Carlos Felipe by unanimous decision in their three-round heavyweight bout. Arlovski took the cards 29-28 across.

Also, Jim Miller defeated Erick Gonzalez by knockout 14 seconds into Round 2, Manon Fiorot won by unanimous decision over Mayra Bueno Silva, and Nate Landwehr beat Ludovit Klein by submission in Round 3 (Anaconda choke).
