UFC Vegas 40 streamed on ESPN+ this past Saturday where we saw Norma Dumont defeating Aspen Ladd in the main event to register her third consecutive win and made herself a future contender to challenge UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Amanda Nunes.
But the bout between Dumont and Ladd was uninspiring to say the least, which was in complete contrast to the rest of the event which featured several thrilling finishes.
