Per Nolan King (@mma_kings) via Twitter, a bantamweight battle between UFC veteran Leslie Smith and unbeaten prospect Aspen Ladd is in the works for a TBA UFC event in April.
After a hot streak in Invicta that included a victory over Amanda Bobby Cooper, Aspen Ladd (6-0) made a successful UFC debut by stopping Lina Lansberg in the second round back in October.
“The Peacemaker” Leslie Smith (10-7-1) has put together an impressive two fight win streak with back to back wins— a dominant decision over Irene Aldana and a second round TKo over Amanda Lemos in July.
The bout is rumored to take place in April. The event and date are TBA.
