Also, superstar Urijah Faber returns from retirement after over two years away from the cage.
This weekend, the UFC women’s bantamweights take center stage in Sacramento, CA. A fast rising star is getting her biggest fight yet against the number one contender in the class. You can stream it live in the U.S.A. to watch De Randamie vs. Ladd on UFC Fight Night exclusively on ESPN+.
UFC Fight Night De Randamie vs. Ladd is broadcasting live from the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, CA on Saturday, July 13. This Fight Night is airing exclusively on ESPN+, with the Prelims starting at 5 p.m. Eastern time and then the Main Card taking over at 8 p.m. Eastern.
Germaine “The Iron Lady” de Randamie (8-3) is the top ranked contender for the Women’s Bantamweight title. She is out for that title, and revenge against the current champion Amanda Nunes. Nunes knocked out de Randamie, which is the only loss “The Iron Lady” has in her time in the UFC. De Randamie has experience as a champion herself as the first UFC Women’s featherweight champion in 2017. However, she was stripped of that title after refusing to fight top contender Cris Cyborg. Germaine is a big fighter for her weight class, with a 3 inch advantage in height and 5 inch advantage in reach over her opponent. This could make it harder for Ladd to execute her plan to get de Randamie to the ground.
Aspen Ladd (8-0) is a fast rising brawler and the fourth ranked contender among Women’s Bantamweights. Ladd has been a buzzsaw, with six of her eight wins coming by submission or stoppage. Only three of her fights have even gone into the third round, so her best chance against de Randamie could be a fast start. However, Ladd is also facing her biggest professional fight so far. Her past opponents are ranked much lower, and she hasn’t faced any of the other top contenders.
Ladd hopes to show her toughness Saturday, as she did in this fight against Tonya Evinger last year.
