No-shows loss following long layoff
October 16, 2021
Ladd lost to Norma Dumont via unanimous decision (46-49, 46-49, 47-48) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Dominick Cruz claims Octagon rust isn't real, but anyone who watched Ladd in this fight would be able to tell you exactly the opposite. Fighting for the first time since December 2019 due to a serious knee injury, Ladd looked like a shell of her former self. She built her reputation upon aggressiveness and putting constant pressure on her opposition, but Ladd spent the first three rounds Saturday doing absolutely nothing. She ATTEMPTED a grand total of 16 strikes over the course of the first 15 minutes. It got so bad that Ladd's corner was literally screaming at her in between rounds to do something. She picked up the pace a bit in Rounds 4 and 5, but the damage was already done. This had the look of a fighter dealing with a mental block in her first fight in nearly two years. The good news is that Ladd is still just 26 years of age despite the time away. That said, she needs a rebound effort her next time out.
Stepping in to face Dumont
October 6, 2021
Ladd will fight Norma Dumont in a five-round, featherweight bout at the UFC event on Oct. 16, Brett Okamoto of reports.
Holly Holm was forced to withdraw from the headliner with Dumont due to a knee injury, and Ladd will step in on short notice. Ladd was scheduled to take on Macy Chiasson in a bantamweight bout last weekend, but the fight was canceled after Ladd missed weight. Ladd will now move up to featherweight to take on Dumont a couple weeks later.
Fight scrapped

Ladd's fight against Macy Chiasson has been removed from Saturday's UFC card because Ladd exceeded her weigh-in limit, Damon Martin of reports.
Ladd was originally slated to fight Chiasson in July, but Chiasson had to postpone the match due to a foot injury. Ladd has still yet to compete in her first fight since recovering from a torn ACL and MCL in June. The two bantamweights will have to wait for their next chance to fight, which could be a while.
Exceeds weight limit
October 1, 2021
Ladd exceeded her weigh-in limit Friday, ahead of her fight against Macy Chiasson.
Ladd officially weighed in at 137 pounds which ended up being one pound over her allowable limit. There has been no decision yet on whether a fine will be given to Ladd or if the matchup will be postponed or canceled. Chiasson was supposed to fight Ladd originally in July, but she had to postpone the fight because of a foot injury.
Chiasson bout rescheduled
July 28, 2021
Ladd will now fight Macy Chiasson on Oct. 2, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
This is a rescheduled bout for the two bantamweights after Chiasson had to pull out of their July 24 fight due to stress fractures in her foot. This will be Ladd's first fight since she recovered from a torn ACL and MCL in June of 2020.
