Aspen Ladd has been tripped up by the scale once again.
At Friday’s official weigh-ins for UFC Vegas 60, Ladd weighed in at 138 pounds, two pounds over the limit for her bantamweight bout against Sara McMann that is scheduled to take place on Saturday’s preliminary card at UFC APEX in Las Vegas.
The UFC later announced that her bout with McMann has been cancelled.
Ladd has struggled with making weight throughout her UFC career, previously coming in heavy for a bouts against Leslie Smith and Macy Chiasson that were both subsequently cancelled (Smith declined a catchweight bout, Ladd was forced to withdraw from the Chiasson bout due to health concerns). She also missed weight for a bout against Jessica Hoy at Invicta FC 18 in July 2016.
Bantamweight headliners Cory Sandhagen and Song Yadong — currently No. 4 and No. 14 respectively in MMA Fighting’s Global Rankings — successfully made weight, with both contenders weighing in at 135.5 pounds.
Middleweight Alen Amedovski also missed weight by 0.5 pounds on his first attempt, coming in at 186.5 pounds for his bout with Joe Pyfer. Doctors cleared Amedovski to make a second attempt and he later successfully made weight at 185.5 pounds.
