UFC Vegas 40 weigh-in results: Aspen Ladd, Norma Dumont hit mark for featherweight headliner, one bout cancelled

New, comments

Aspen Ladd didn’t have any trouble with the scale this time.

Two weeks after she failed to make weight and saw a bantamweight bout against Macy Chiasson cancelled, Ladd successfully hit the mark for Saturday’s UFC Vegas 40 featherweight main event opposite Norma Dumont. Ladd was the first fighter to weigh in, coming in at 145 pounds, while Dumont weighed in at 145.5 pounds.

Watch official weigh-in highlights above.

Ladd is stepping in on short notice for Holly Holm, who was forced to withdraw due to a knee injury. This is the first time Ladd has competed at featherweight since her amateur days.

There was one late change to the card as middleweight Julian Marquez did not weigh in at Friday’s official weigh-ins. The UFC announced that Marquez has been forced to withdraw from Saturday’s card due to non-COVID-19-related health issues and his bout with Jordan Wright has been cancelled.

All 21 fighters who appeared Friday morning successfully made weight.
