Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Aspen Ladd vs Lina Lansberg
Here's the match video of Aspen Ladd vs Lina Lansberg from yesterday's UFC show in Gdansk, Poland. This aired on UFC Fight Pass. Aspen was supposed to make her UFC debut a couple of months ago but she got sick from food poisoning. Most fans should know her from Invicta. I really like her. She's 22 years old and she trains at MMA Gold in El Dorado Hills, CA. Lina trains with former UFC fighter Akira Corassani in Malmo, Sweden. She was brought in to the UFC as a sacrificial lamb for Cris Cyborg. She won her second fight but she didn't look good. She's a kickboxer who likes the clinch. Hence the nickname The Elbow Queen. In round one, Aspen decided to clinch with The Elbow Queen. She said afterwards she was just feeling Lina out. But Lina landed some good knees so I gave her the round 10-9. Between rounds, Aspen's trainer Jim West read her the riot act. He told her to take Lina down and pound her out. And that's exactly what Aspen did. She won by TKO. That's one of the things I like about Aspen. She does what she is told and finishes fights. Perfect. There were complaints that the finish was early. I had no problem with it. Lina wasn't going anywhere. The end was inevitable. Obviously I am looking forward to seeing more Aspen Ladd in the UFC. Given time, she could be Bantamweight champ. Enjoy the video!
