Aspen Ladd (8-0-0) takes on Germaine “The Iron Lady” de Randamie (8-3-0) in a Bantamweight fight that’s billed as the main event on UFC Fight Night 155 on Saturday 13 July, 2019 at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California.
The 24 year-old American Ladd maintained her 100% record in winning her last fight in May this year against Sijara Eubanks by Unanimous Decision.
The 35 year-old Dutch former world featherweight champion Germaine de Randamie comes into this fight having beaten Raquel Pennington by Unanimous Decision in her last fight back in November 2018. Injuries have seriously restricted de Randamie’s career in the octagon since 2013, with her only having fought four times in over five years (all of which she has won).
Ladd vs de Randamie Head-to-heads
De Randamie has a considerable height and reach advantage over her opponent, but Ladd lands considerably more significant strikes per minute, has the greater accuracy and has KO’d five opponents to de Randamie’s three.
When it comes to grappling, Ladd is again the fighter with the better record and this is where she will look to win this particular UFC fight. Ladd’s striking is particularly ferocious on the ground, but de Randamie has the reach to keep her at bay and is difficult to takedown anyway. She will have the advantage if she can stay on her feet, given her strong background in kickboxing and boxing.
