THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

Aspen Ladd and Sijara Eubanks meet again after their 2017 encounter as Eubanks steps back up to bantamweight desperate for vengeance and a place in line for the title.

Both fighters have only had two fights since but they have come on leaps and bounds. Ladd is still unbeaten and has looked phenomenal in her recent fights. Eubanks was her only fight that went to a decision and she went on to pull off her two best performances to date by dominating and finishing experienced veterans Lina Lansberg and Tonya Evinger.

Despite Eubanks’ unflattering record of 4-2, she has also looked impressive. She blitzed her way to the final of The Ultimate Fighter, dominating Maia Stevenson, DeAnna Bennett and Roxanne Modafferi. However, her hardest fight was trying to make weight after suffering kidney failure before the finale.

Eubanks still got her opportunity in the UFC and earned a decision over Lauren Murphy and another one over Modafferi but failed to make weight, forcing this move up to bantamweight.

THE PREDICTION

This is a fantastic match-up. Ladd is a prolific finisher and has so much potential in the division. She is incredibly powerful and will leverage these attributes to try and earn another finish.

Eubanks is also very strong and at bantamweight she also has a ton of potential. She will be more energised and dangerous with ten less pounds to cut. She is slick on the feet with great technique where she will have the advantage but despite no submission wins on her record, her main strength is her Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as a high-level black belt.

This rematch will be a fascinating contest especially if it goes to the floor. It is hard to back against Eubanks but Ladd’s size and power will be crucial to controlling the fight and considering their toughness, a decision is most likely.

Winner: Ladd via Decision
