Norma Dumont


Outlasts Felicia Spencer
May 22, 2021
Dumont defeated Felicia Spencer via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Dumont likely deserved to win, but there clearly wasn't much separation here either way. The Brazilian doesn't have a knockout win in her pro career, so it should come as no surprise that she attempted to wear Spencer down with volume. While Dumont never had her opponent in any sort of real trouble, that aforementioned volume on the feet ended up being enough to win her a close fight. Dumont has now picked up back-to-back unanimous decisions wins (Spencer, Ashlee Evans-Smith) since being knocked out by the since-released Megan Anderson in her company debut in February 2020. She stated after the fight that she is going to work to move down to bantamweight in hopes of staying more active. It's a good idea if she can pull it off from a physical standpoint.

Fight called off
April 9, 2021
Dumont won't be fighting Erin Blanchfield at UFC Vegas 23 on April 10 after the Nevada Athletic Commission pulled it from the card because Dumont missed weight by 3.5 pounds, Nolan King of USA Today reports.
This is the second straight instance in which Dumont has missed were weight by a considerable amount. She was forced to forfeit 30 percent of her purse the first time around but now won't even get a chance to fight after the Nevada Athletic Commission removed it from Saturday night's card. Blanchfield was still willing to go on with the fight but the NAC would not let this type of thing slide again.
Gets new opponent for April 10
April 1, 2021
Dumont is now scheduled to face Erin Blanchfield in a bantamweight fight April 10 in Las Vegas after Dumont's previous opponent, Bea Malecki, withdrew Thursday, Ariel Helwani of ESPN reports.
An explanation for Malecki's withdrawal has yet to be publicized, but Dumont will stay on schedule with her training for the fight while taking on a UFC newcomer in the 21-year-old Blanchfield. Considering that Blanchfield is making the jump from the 125-pound division, Dumont should be viewed as the favorite in this matchup.
Returning to Octagon in April
January 20, 2021
Dumont (hand) is scheduled to face Bea Malecki (2-0-0) in a bantamweight fight on the UFC's April 10 card, Marcel Dorff of reports.
In the aftermath of her unanimous-decision win over Ashlee Evans-Smith in Las Vegas on Nov. 28, Dumont received a six-month medical suspension after a post-fight examination revealed a right hand injury. Dumont's return to the Octagon about six weeks before that six-month timeline suggests she's already gained clearance from a doctor to resume fighting. She'll be seeking her second UFC win when she takes on Malecki, who has claimed victories in both of her official MMA fights since losing an exhibition bout to Leah Letson while competing on "The Ultimate Fighter" in 2018.

Dumont must have her right hand X-rayed and cleared by a doctor or she will have to face a six-month suspension, reports.
Dumont was able to beat Ashlee Evans-Smith by unanimous decision over the weekend, but she will be unable to partake in a fight again until after May 28, 2021 if she can't get clearance from a doctor on her hand.
