Norma Dumont (7-2) is coming off the second loss of her career. Her first came on her debut which was unfortunate especially as she got knocked out in the first round by Megan Anderson (2020) who is no longer on the roster. She went on to string three impressive decision wins together over Ashlee Evans-Smith (2020), Felicia Spencer (2021) and Aspen Ladd (2021). The streak was then snapped back in May by Macy Chiasson who is also on the card in a razor-tight split decision.

She welcomes Danyelle Wolf (1-0) to the octagon for her debut and second professional MMA fight. The US National Boxing Amateur Champion made her MMA debut on the Contender Series two years ago where she earnt a unanimous decision over Taneisha Tennant. She was scheduled to fight Felicia Spencer last year but pulled out with an injury and now finally makes her debut under the bright lights.


Wolf stands at 5’11” with a 70-inch reach, has good amateur experience and looks like an impressive prospect at first glance. However, she has only had 15 minutes experience in the sport and is 39 years old taking on a multi-skilled mixed martial artist.

That said, if Dumont has the ego or more the fight IQ to try and stand with Wolf, she will get humbled. It is important to note that Dumont is a national sanda champion which includes grappling. She is a good striker, but if she mixes in some takedowns and clinch work, she will make Wolf look like she does not belong in the cage.

Dumont just needs to land a couple of her powerful kicks to the unconditioned legs of Wolf and take her down to completely control the fight and that is what we expect to happen. If she decides to stand and trade for the whole fight, then suddenly there is a bit of value on the boxer.
