Aspen Ladd (8-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Sijara Eubanks (4-3 MMA, 2-1 UFC) had a wonderful performance on Saturday at UFC Rochester, New York. The back-and-forth bantamweight fight in the UFC on ESPN+ 10 featured the preliminary bout.

Ladd won after a unanimous decision has been made, the result is the same as their 2017 first fight. The ladies earn the title “Fight of the Night” with honors. This victory means a lot for Aspen Ladd, 24, who is considered the best combination between youth and physically tenacity, a quality that is usually earned only with time and experience.
“People look at her age and say, ‘Oh, she can’t be that experienced,'” said Jim West, Ladd’s both coach and boyfriend. “She’s actually pretty experienced, and she’s super cerebral in her understanding of MMA. We knew she had this uncanny tenacity and will to win, something you can’t teach. So, we focused on teaching her the why – exactly why we’re doing things.”
The maturity of the MMA fighter comes from her education. She was homeschooled, along with her 5 siblings in Pioneer, a small town of California. At the age of 15, she participated in her first MMA class. That was the moment she knew that this is her calling. Fast-forward to the present day, Saturday’s fight was a true challenge for her, as it was the first time performing after the loss of her beloved grandfather. “I think he supported me before anyone else did when it came to fighting,” Ladd stated about her grandfather. “You’ve got to find a mental separation sometimes, where you can be sad but still handle your business. That’s what I’m going through right now for this fight.” And that’s what she did!
