UFC Veteran Aspen Ladd Signs With PFL

UFC veteran Aspen Ladd has signed with the PFL.

The promotion officially announced Ladd's signing via a tweet on Tuesday morning. The news comes fresh off the heels of Ladd being released by the UFC for missing weight for the third time for her scheduled bout against former UFC title challenger, Sara McMann, at UFC Vegas 60 last week. Ladd who primarily competed at 135 pounds under the UFC banner, will move up to 145-pounds and compete in the PFL's 2023 regular season as a featherweight. She gave the following statement in a press release about joining the promotion.

"I want to thank the Professional Fighters League for giving me the opportunity to continue my career in the PFL SmartCage," Ladd said (h/t ESPN). "I am excited about the PFL's sport season format where you win and advance based on talent and merit. I look forward to testing myself against the best women's featherweights in the world."

The 27-year-old Folsom, California native went 4-3 in her seven Octagon appearances after debuting with the UFC back in October 2017. She was defeated by former UFC title challenger, Raquel Pennington, via a unanimous decision at UFC 273 in her last fight for the company.
