Aspen Ladd to Meet Macy Chiasson at UFC Event on July 24

By Tristen Critchfield Apr 7, 2021


Aspen Ladd will return to the Octagon after a year-and-a-half absence when she meets Macy Chiasson at an Ultimate Fighting Championship event on July 24.

ESPN was first to report the bantamweight pairing. The card does not yet have an official location or headliner.

Ladd hasn’t competed since earning a third-round TKO against Yana Kunitskaya at UFC on ESPN 7 in December 2019. In 2020, knee injury forced Ladd out of a proposed bout with Sara McMann on June 27 and sidelined her for the rest of the year. The 26-year-old has lost just once in 10 pro outings, a 16-second stoppage defeat to Germaine de Randamie at UFC Fight Night 155.

“The Ultimate Fighter” Season 28 winner, Chiasson has been victorious in five of her six Octagon appearances thus far. The 29-year-old Fortis MMA representative secured her first triumph of 2021 at UFC on ESPN 21, where she outpointed Marion Reneau.
