Last weekend, at UFC Fight Night 118 in Gdansk, Poland, fight fans were treated to action in both the women’s bantamweight and strawweight divisions. In the early prelims, unbeaten Invicta FC star Aspen Ladd (6-0) made her UFC debut against Muay Thai specialist, Lina Lansberg (7-3). The first round was controlled by Lansberg in the clinch, however, the tides turned in the second round when Ladd secured a takedown. On the ground, Ladd advanced to full mount position where she rained down ground and pound (and primal screams) until the referee stepped in. Later that night, in the co-main event slot, Poland’s own Karolina Kowalkiewicz (11-2) snapped a two-fight losing skid with a dominant victory over Invicta FC vet Jodie Esquibel (6-3). Esquibel put up a valiant effort against the former title challenger but Kowalkiewicz’s striking output and constant pressure overwhelmed the debutante en route to a unanimous hometown decision victory.
