UFC Vegas 40: Norma Dumont Defeats Aspen Ladd Via Unanimous Decision In Main Event

It may not have been a highlight-reel fight, but Norma Dumont did what she had to.

UFC Vegas 40 – also called UFC Fight Night 195 – took place on in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dumont (7-1) held on to defeat Aspen Ladd (9-2) in the main event.

Aspen took this fight on short notice, but still opened the bout as the favorite. However, her Brazilian rival did a better job in the five-round battle and earned her third victory in a row.

In the co-main event, former heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski shared the octagon with a young prospect from Brazil, Carlos Felipe.

Felipe was on a three-fight winning streak in the UFC and wanted to make a statement by defeating the former champion, but Arlovski stopped his goal and served Felipe his second loss in the UFC.

Arlovski is already 42 years old, but the American Top Team student has earned four victories in his previous five contests.

Another veteran on the card, Jim Miller, earned a spectacular knockout in just the second round. At the age of 38, he notched his fifth knockout victory against a young prospect.

Nate Landwehr defeated Ludovit Klein via anaconda choke in the third round. Landwehr was considered a moderate underdog, but MMA fans witnessed his improvement.

Landwehr was famous for getting angry and emotional during fights. However, he controlled himself this time, attacked strategically with combinations and finished his rival on the ground on the second attempt of submission.

It was his first-ever submission victory in his professional MMA career.

Lots of fans consider the battle between Danny Roberts and Ramazan Emeev a robbery.

One of the judges gave all three rounds to Roberts, and fans were confused with it. However, many fans thought and said that Ramazan won this fight 30-27 or 29-28.
