UFC Fight Night: Ladd vs Dumont Main Card

Main Event: Aspen Ladd vs Norma Dumont

In the UFC Fight Night main event at the UFC APEX, Norma Dumont won a five-round unanimous decision over Aspen Ladd in a featherweight bout.

Scores were 49-46, 49-46 and 48-47 for Dumont, now 7-1. Ladd falls to 9-2.

Dumont controlled the range as the fight began thanks to a consistent jab and the occasional right hand. Ladd stayed patient as she sought an opening to respond, but those opportunities were not presenting themselves to the Californian, who didn’t offer anything offensively to Dumont to worry about in the first frame.

Two minutes into round two, Ladd finally came alive as she bulled Dumont into the fence, but the Brazilian escaped any danger and got back to pumping her jab, which she did for the rest of the stanza, taking another round. And while Ladd was more active in the third, her offense wasn’t enough to take the round from Dumont, who kept piling up the points.

Late in the fourth, Ladd found daylight on the ground, getting in her patented ground-and-pound attack, showing signs of life before the final frame beckoned.

After getting a talking to from her corner before the fifth round, Ladd raced out of her corner to start the stanza, but Dumont defended well, staying upright as Ladd tried to get her to the mat. The Californian did stay busy in the clinch as she had her best round of the fight, but it wasn’t nearly enough to turn things around and get the win.

Co-Main Event: Andrei Arlovski vs Carlos Felipe

The ageless Andrei Arlovski continued to roll, making it 4-1 in his last five with a three-round unanimous decision over Carlos Felipe.

Scores were 29-28 across the board for the 42-year-old Arlovski, now 32-20, 1 NC. Felipe falls to 11-2.

Arlovski fought a smart and technically sound first round, keeping Felipe at bay with his kicks and quick punches upstairs. Felipe was throwing for the fences from the start, but he rarely hit his mark in the opening five minutes.

Felipe got on the board in the second as Arlovski slowed down, but it was still “The Pit Bull” controlling the majority of the frame by not fixing what wasn’t broken.

With the fight perhaps up for grabs, Felipe took the early lead in the third, landing some hard shots as Arlovski’s gas tank continued to empty. The former heavyweight champ stumbled to the mat midway through the frame and Felipe pounced with a barrage of punches, but Arlovski shook off the blows and got back to his feet, landing a nice combination before eating a pair of wild overhand rights. With a minute left, the two clinched, a welcome break for both fighters before referee Herb Dean separated them, and it was Arlovski getting in a couple more shots as the bout concluded.

Gonzalez scored a takedown a minute in, putting Miller on his back. The fight was upright moments later, and the newcomer wobbled Miller, forcing the New Jersey native to seek – and get – a takedown. With under two minutes to go, the fighters rose and began trading, Miller landing some hard left hands that got Gonzalez’ attention.

Miller’s left hand found its mark once again as round two began, and this time it put Gonzalez down and out, with referee Mark Smith stopping the fight at :14 of the second stanza.

Fiorot outworked Silva throughout the first round, knocking the Brazilian down with a kick midway through the frame and scoring a takedown with 30 seconds to go. Silva was never in any serious danger, but she seemed to let that round slip away.

There was more of the same in the second and third rounds, Fiorot handing in a steady work rate while Silva posed and showboated more than fought. When she did decide to throw, the Brazilian had some success, but those moments were few and far between.

Both fighters were throwing hard in the first round, Landwehr slightly busier, but Klein equally effective with the blows he was throwing. “Nate the Train” kept the offense flowing in the second, nearly catching his foe in a choke, and while Klein got loose, once standing, Landwehr was relentless in chasing down his foe, putting him on the defensive for the rest of the round.

In the third, with Klein tiring, Landwehr didn’t slow down, and when he got the choke in this time, it forced a tap out at 2:22 of the final frame.

UFC Fight Night: Ladd vs Dumont Prelims

Andrew Sanchez vs Bruno Silva

Middleweight Bruno Silva scored a come from behind victory over Andrew Sanchez, stopping the former Ultimate Fighter winner in the third round.

Silva blasted Sanchez with punches to the body as the bout began, but Sanchez got the fight to the mat in the second minute, putting the action where he wanted it. Sanchez controlled the fight on the ground until Silva got to his feet with a minute left, but the Brazilian remained locked up against the fence until a low knee forced a halt to the action. Once the fight resumed, Sanchez landed another low shot, sending Silva to the mat in pain, but able to continue.

The second round was all Sanchez again, as his grappling was a step above that of Silva’s. Early in round three, a third low blow by Sanchez forced a point deduction by referee Keith Peterson, and with the American tiring, Silva had his opening, and he took advantage of it. Digging hard to the body, Silva wasn’t worried about the takedown as he let loose with his striking attack, and after an unanswered barrage, Peterson stepped in and halted the fight at 2:35 of the final frame.

Roberts’ takedown defense was solid in round two, as he turned back several attempts from Emeev and also tagged his foe with some hard shots, but Emeev did get the fight to the mat with under two minutes left. Roberts, cut on the forehead, scrambled out of danger and returned to his feet, the two battling back and forth until the horn.
