It has not been the best few weeks for Aspen Ladd. First, she failed to make the bantamweight limit at UFC Vegas 38 and her fight was called off due to safety concerns. The UFC cut her a break and inserted her into a featherweight main event against Norma Dumont for last weekend’s show to replace Holly Holm.
But it didn’t seem like Ladd showed up for that fight either, even though she was in the cage competing.
Ladd was thoroughly dominated by Dumont over five boring rounds. Dumont didn’t even have to do much – anything is better than nothing. But since there’s no women’s featherweight rankings, Dumont wasn’t rewarded with any ranking advancements this week. Ladd though, fell a few spots down the women’s P4P list.
And other than that, nothing happened from a rankings perspective. Here’s your list of changes for this week.
Men’s P4P – Justin Gaethje moves up into a tie for 14 with Ciryl Gane.
Heavyweight – Marcin Tybura moves up into a tie for eight with Shamil Abrurakhimov. Blagoy Ivanov and Walt Harris flip-flop the 12 and 13 spots, while Sergei Pavlovich and Serghei Spivac go back and forth at 14 and 15 once again.
Light Heavyweight – No changes.
Middleweight – No changes.
Welterweight – Michael Chiesa is now tied with Jorge Masvidal for the six spot. Daniel Rodriguez is up one to 14, bumping Muslim Salikjov down to 15.
