Norma Dumont


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.

Looking at six-month suspension
December 1, 2020
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.
Picks up lopsided decision
November 28, 2020
Dumont defeated Ashlee Evans-Smith via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 30-26) at UFC on ESPN 18 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Dumont ate a couple kicks early while finding her range, but at some point realized she had a big speed advantage and started to unload with her striking. After opening up a cut on the bridge of Evans-Smith's nose, it was Dumont that went for (and succeeded) with the takedown despite AES being generally known for her wrestling prowess. Dumont was taken down early in the second, but quickly reversed position and eventually passed to full mount. Evans-Smith managed to escape a bad position, but it came at the cost of several hard elbows from Dumont, who continued to land power shots on the feet in the final minute of Round 2. The third round was more of the same. Evans-Smith was unsuccessful with her takedown attempt and couldn't land much, while Dumont punished her each time she entered the pocket. Dumont came dangerously close to a finish, but Evans-Smith managed to hear the final bell. While this will go down as a win for Dumont, her stock won't necessarily rise a ton considering she missed weight by 3.5 pounds for this fight.
Misses weight badly
November 28, 2020
Dumont weighed in at 139.5 pounds for her scheduled bantamweight matchup against Ashlee Evans-Smith on Saturday.
Dumont will ultimately forfeit 30 percent of her fight purse to Evans-Smith, who hit her mark at 135.5 on Friday morning. The fight will proceed as scheduled, with Dumont entering as roughly a (+125) betting underdog as of Saturday morning. Dumont had to move up to featherweight for her UFC debut against Megan Anderson in February, but cutting back down to her former weight class turned out to be too big of a task, at least on first attempt.
Gets November fight
August 19, 2020
Dumont will take on Ashlee Evans-Smith in a bantamweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for November 28, Raphael Marinho of Combate reports.
Dumont will be fighting for the first time since getting knocked out by Megan Anderson in her UFC debut, but this time she'll be moving down a weight class. Despite the extra cut, she'll still be giving up an inch in both height and reach to Evans-Smith. It's nonetheless a fair opportunity for Dumont to bounce back and show she deserves a roster spot, as Evans-Smith has dropped three of her last four fights dating back to April of 2017.
Receives 60-day medical suspension
March 2, 2020
Dumont has been given a 60-day medical suspension following her first-round knockout at the hands of Megan Anderson at UFC Norfolk, Steven Marrocco of reports.
Dumont held her own in her debut bout until the taller Anderson landed a big knock out punch. It is unclear what specific injuries she sustained, but the 29-year-old will have to wait until at least May before getting another fighting again.
