Norma Dumont



Victorious in first UFC main event
October 16, 2021
Dumont defeated Aspen Ladd via unanimous decision (49-46, 49-46, 48-47) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
A strange set of circumstances thrust Dumont into her first UFC main event and she did not disappoint. Facing an opponent who hadn't fought in nearly two years and appeared to be dealing with some sort of mental block following her long layoff, Dumont was able to bank the first three rounds without breaking a sweat. She out landed Ladd 48-16 over the course of the first 15 minutes and that was all she wrote in a five-round fight. It's fair to wonder if Dumont would have had this same type of success against Ladd had the latter not been coming off a long layoff, but that's not Dumont's problem. As is, Dumont has won three in a row since being knocked out by Megan Anderson in her UFC debut. Perhaps the UFC will attempt to re-book Dumont and her originally scheduled opponent for this evening, Holly Holm.

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.
