Aspen Ladd has already found a new home.
Ladd has joined the Professional Fighters League’s (PFL) roster and is expected to compete in the women’s featherweight division – which has yet to be announced – in 2023, the promotion confirmed on Tuesday.
“I want to thank the Professional Fighters League for giving me the opportunity to continue my career in the PFL SmartCage,” Ladd said in a statement.
“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.”

Ladd recently parted ways with the UFC, where she fought for five years and recorded a 4-3 stat sheet. She was released after missing weight.
The 27-year-old was projected to be a top bantamweight contender, but issues with her weight led to several fight cancellations including against Leslie Smith, Macy Chiasson and Sara McMann.
She last fought in April at UFC 273 where she lost to Raquel Pennington by unanimous decision.
Before UFC, she fought under the Invicta FC banner from 2015 to 2017.
Her next opponent has yet to be announced.
