An exciting women’s bantamweight fight will headline the early preliminary portion of this Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 128 event when Leslie Smith takes on Aspen Ladd.
Smith (10-7-1) is on a three-fight winning streak when it comes to bouts contested at 135-pounds, having picked up impressive wins over Amanda Lemos, Irene Aldana and Rin Nakai. The 35-year-old “Peacemaker” will be looking to build on her streak and put herself in contention for a title shot later this year.
Ladd (6-0) looks to build on her UFC debut last October when she earned the TKO victory over Lina Lansberg in the second-round. The 22-year-old undefeated star owns notable wins over Sijara Eubanks and Amanda Bobby Cooper and believes she is the best in the world at bantamweight.
UFC Fight Night 128 takes place on April 21 from the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, United States. The early preliminary card featuring Smith vs. Ladd will be aired live on UFC Fight Pass from 6:30pm ET.
