Undefeated women’s bantamweight prospect Aspen Ladd will have the golden chance of defeating a former champion when she faces Germaine de Randamie in the UFC Fight Night 155 headliner. De Randamie, meanwhile, will be looking to get back to title contention. As they prepare for this pivotal encounter, below are some important numbers you need to know.
Age and overall experienceAt 35, de Randamie is 11 years older than Ladd, who celebrated her 24th birthday on March 1. Ladd made her pro debut at Invicta Fighting Championships on Feb. 27, 2015 against Ana Carolina Vidal, and after eight fights, she remains undefeated. Meanwhile, de Randamie’s current record is 8-3. She made her pro debut as far back as Dec. 19, 2008 but suffered a submission defeat to Vanessa Porto.
UFC appearancesDe Randamie entered the Ultimate Fighting Championship as a bantamweight after spending a couple of fights as a featherweight at Strikeforce. In her promotional debut at UFC on Fox 8, she defeated Julie Kedzie by split decision. For her next bout, however, she was given a tough task in no less than the current two-division champion Amanda Nunes, who knocked her out in the first round. Since then, de Randamie has compiled four consecutive victories at the expense of Larissa Pacheco, Anna Elmose, Holly Holm and Raquel Pennington.
Against Holm, de Randamie won the inaugural women’s featherweight title. But due to her refusal to defend the belt against Cristiane Justino, she was stripped of it later on. Her current UFC record is 5-1. Ladd, on the other hand, sports a 3-0 record, having beaten Lina Lansberg, Tonya Evinger and Sijara Eubanks.
