“Aspen Ladd has called me out to a fight at 135 pounds, I’m afraid that I’m going to waste an entire camp training for a fight that may very well end at the scale. Aspen Ladd has missed weight three times in her MMA career and one time she failed to make it to the fight due to weight cutting issues.”

“So all in all, four times. Go to PI Performance Institute to show some kind of progression. If one of these other bantamweights wants to take that risk then hats off to them.” {H/T MMA Fighting}

Aspen Ladd consistently struggled throughout her career to make weight at 135. In her fight against Germaine De Rendamie, she nearly collapsed on the scale and this thing has happened many times.

That’s why Miesha Tate advised her to make weight first and face someone else in 135 division before facing her. Tate says, “If Aspen Ladd can show up, make 135 pounds, and have a good performance then we might be talking, but until then, I’m out. It’s not personal, it’s professional.” {H/T MMA Fighting}
