“Worst Main Event Ever!”- UFC Fans Not Happy After UFC Fight Night Showcases ‘Boring’ Five Round Event

The main event at UFC Vegas 40 featured a featherweight clash between Aspen Ladd and Norma Dumont. The fight card was initially supposed to be headlined by Holm and Dumont. However, an injury forced the former champion out of the bout. This paved way for Ladd to make her debut at featherweight after missing weight for her recent fight against Chiasson. 

Dumont went into the fight on the back of a two-fight win streak, whereas this was the first time competing for Ladd since her TKO win over Yana Kunitskaya in December 2019. At the end of five rounds, it was Dumont who had done enough to secure a unanimous decision win in her first main event in the UFC.

The Brazilian fighter started off the fight well and maintained a good pace throughout the fight. She pushed forward continuously and showed a lot more offense than her adversary. Over the course of the fight, Dumont threw 113 total strikes with an accuracy of 56%. She also landed 56 significant strikes with an accuracy of 44%. Dumont also landed the one and only takedown of the fight. 

Dumont is now 3-0 in her last three fights and has looked impressive in all of her bouts. ‘The Immortal’ is not close to a title shot at the moment. However, the female featherweight division is extremely slim and a win or two more might catapult her to a title shot.

Fans trash the main event at UFC Vegas 40 

Lewis Simpson did not mince his words about the main event tonight.

Is this up there with one of the worst UFC main events of all time?

Ariel Helwani had a rather interesting point of view on Aspen Ladd and the main event at UFC Vegas 40.

When Aspen Ladd debuted in the UFC she was filled with aggression and intensity. Remember those screams and those finishes? This is obviously the complete opposite. Kinda feel for her because this has to be in large part mental.

Ariel Helwani shared a snippet of the conversation between Ladd and her corner.

“You’re down 3-0. Please tell me what you’re doing. You can’t just throw one punch.”

Nunes is blistering both of those girls in one night with a broken wing ! No offense to Ladd and Dumont they have a lot of potential but worst main even UFC has ever put on even if Holly Holm is there. #UFCVegas40
