Ladd (knee) will take on Macy Chiasson on the July 24 UFC Fight Night card, reports.
Ladd suffered a torn ACL and MCL last June and faced a long recovery because of it. She was reportedly targeting the spring of 2021 early last November but will wait a little longer for her chance to get back into the Octagon. Ladd, who sports a 9-1-0 professional record and a 4-1-0 mark in the UFC, has a tough challenge ahead of her in Chiasson, who owns a 9-1-0 record as a professional and is 5-1-0 in the UFC. Ladd will surrender a whopping five inches of height and six of reach to her opposition, so she may need to focus on getting her opponent to the mat.
Targeting spring return to Octagon

Ladd is progressing well in her rehab from the torn ACL and MCL she sustained in early June, Farah Hannoun of USA Today reports. "Aspen does [physical therapy] two or three times a day, five times a week, so she's really putting a lot of work," her coach, Jim West, said. "Last I heard, she's about five or six weeks ahead of guess is you're probably gonna see Aspen fight sometime around the end of February, the beginning of March."
Ladd suffered the serious knee injury while training ahead of a June 27 bout with Sara McMann that was ultimately cancelled. The 25-year-old appears to be coming along well from surgery, and if her rehab continues as planned, she should be ready to return to the Octagon early in the spring. According to West, Ladd is looking to rebook a fight with Julianna Pena, who was forced to withdraw from a previously agreed upon matchup in March due to an injury of her own.
