Aspen Ladd Joins PFL Roster Following UFC Release

Aspen Ladd has already found a new home.

The former UFC bantamweight has signed with the PFL, per an announcement made by the promotion Tuesday.

Ladd is making the move after parting ways with the UFC roster late last month. Her departure from the promotion came after failing to make weight for a September 17th fight against Sara McMann, causing that bout to not take place.

Ladd has struggled with weight-cut issues in previous bouts as well, causing other bookings to fall through.

She currently holds a pro record of nine wins and three losses, including four victories in the UFC cage. She will be entering the PFL with the goal of snapping a two-fight skid.

“I am excited about the PFL’s sport season format where you win and advance based on talent and merit,” said Ladd in a press release issued this week. “I look forward to testing myself against the best women in the world.”

An announcement from Ladd said that she will compete at featherweight. The promotion currently doesn’t have a women’s featherweight division established in their annual season structure, although the plans for their 2023 schedule aren’t known at the moment.
