A women’s bantamweight clash between Germaine de Randamie and Aspen Ladd will serve as the headliner for UFC Sacramento.
MMAjunkie.com was first to report the 135-pound pairing, and the Las Vegas-based promotion later confirmed the bout. UFC Sacramento takes place at Golden1 Center on July 13 and will also include the return of Urijah Faber, as he faces Ricky Simon in a featured bantamweight contest. The evening’s main card will air on ESPN+.
A former UFC featherweight champion, De Randamie enters the contest on a four-bout winning streak in the Octagon. “The Iron Lady” last appeared at UFC Fight Night 139, where she outpointed Raquel Pennington on Nov. 10.
A five-time Invicta FC veteran, Ladd is unbeaten in eight professional outings. That includes triumphs over Lina Lansberg, Tonya Evinger and Sijara Eubanks in UFC competition. The 24-year-old has finished five of her victories by KO/TKO and one via submission.
