Main Card

Aspen Ladd

Aspen Ladd started to make a mark in Invicta where she was undefeated. Coming over to the UFC, she was highly regarded and she proved it winning against Lina Lansberg and Tonya Evinger with glamorous KOs while pushed Sijara Eubanks to the brink taking the victory by unanimous decision. Unfortunately, she failed her first true test against Germaine de Randamie as she went down in 16 seconds. Still, Ladd is a talent to be feared and the loss will make her better.

Not many women carry that KO power and Ladd is one of them. Expect her to test Kunitskaya’s and it could be over in two rounds. At 24-years-old, Ladd is an American fighter that has a lot of upsides as she also trains under the MMAGold Fight Team. This should be a strong comeback for her.

Yana Kunitskaya

Kunitskaya is a 30-year-old fighter that owns a 12-4 professional MMA record from Russia. She is training under Jackson-Wink MMA and since she came to the UFC, it was a struggle for her in the beginning as she got beaten by Christiane Justino in the first round. She then bounced back in her next two matches and fighting her opponents in full 15 minutes. Both were won by unanimous decisions. Against Ladd, Kunitskaya will be a way of her power. Expect her to be on the defensive side and trying to read all her opponent’s moves before being the aggressor.

To win this game, she needs to be careful of Ladd’s power and look for the counter since she also has a KO power that she boasted way back in her Invicta days. She will not be shy in putting the match on the ground and look for that submission victory.
