When Aspen Ladd weighed in at UFC Sacramento before her main event fight against Germaine de Randamie, she did not look good. She was shaking on the scale and could barely stand up.
Yet, the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) said she was good to compete the following night. In the fight, she was knocked out by the first punch and many thought it had something to do with the weigh-in as she ended up weighing in at 159-pounds on fight night.
Now, the CSAC has suspended Ladd’s bantamweight license, and the hope for Andy Foster is that other commissions will respect it.
“CSAC will remove the note if (Ladd) provides extensive medical documentation from a licensed physician certifying the weight class is appropriate and verified by CSAC physicians,” Foster said to MMA Junkie.
Of course, Ladd was recently booked to take on Yana Kunitskaya in Washington D.C. in December. Yet, she will have to show she can make bantamweight safely before the suspension gets taken off. Currently, she has said she will work with the UFC PI on a diet and weight cutting plan.
Do you think Aspen Ladd should have to move up in weight after her issues in Sacramento?
