Despite a recent fight cancellation due to missing weight, Aspen Ladd is set to return, but this time in a main event bout.

Ahead of UFC Fight Night 193, a troubling moment during weigh-ins led to Ladd’s fight against Macy Chiasson being canceled. Ladd was shaking as she stood on the scale as she failed to make the contracted weight limit of 136 pounds.

Now, Ladd is set to fight on short notice against Norma Dumont at UFC Fight Night 195 on Saturday. This bout will take place at 145 pounds, so there shouldn’t be any issues on the scale this time around. But should she be rewarded with a main event opportunity just two weeks after failing to make it to the cage?

Is this a bad look for the UFC or is it the right call with the Ladd needing to move up a division? Our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of Matthew Wells, Danny Segura, and “Gorgeous” George Garcia discuss this topic with host John Morgan.
