No more BW for Ladd

Aspen Ladd suspended from fighting at bantamweight after horrifying weight cut

Several observers were left disturbed by the sight of a shaking, grimacing Aspen Ladd trying to stay on a weight scale before her fight at UFC Sacramento in July.

It appears the California State Athletic Commission had similar thoughts about the episode.

The CSAC has suspended Ladd’s license to fight at bantamweight, according to ESPN. In order to be reinstated, Ladd will reportedly have to follow a commission-approved nutrition plan and be monitored by doctors leading up to her scheduled fight on Dec. 7 against Yana Kunitskaya at UFC on ESPN 7.

Ladd’s manager reportedly said that he expects other commissions to honor the suspension.
Why Aspen Ladd was suspended

It’s not often you see a fighter suspended from their own weight class, but Ladd visibly represented a dangerous side of combat sports when she showed up to weigh in looking like she could collapse at any moment after ridding her body of as much water as possible.

Before her fight against Germaine de Randamie in July, Ladd weighed in under the requisite 136 pounds for bantamweight, then showed up for the fight at 159 pounds. That 24-pound difference meant that Ladd had gained more than 17 percent of her body weight in a day.

If that doesn’t sound troubling enough, just look at Ladd’s state during her official weigh-in.

CSAC regulations reportedly stipulate that a fighter can be recommended or required to move up a weight class if they weigh more than 10 percent over the official weight on fight day, so Ladd was clearly in an area the commission wasn’t comfortable with.

Ladd, who has missed weight twice in her career and missed another fight after falling ill, ended up suffering the first loss of her career against de Randamie in the main event at Sacramento. The fight ended by knockout after 16 seconds.
I'm so fucking high.

Cutting weight is the single most counter productive aspect of fighting. Let me drain myself so I can be depleted before I fight :lol: :lol: its like jerking off before having sex and then you wonder why you couldn't shoot a bigger load. I can understand losing 20lbs to get in fighting shape but you got fighters killing themselves to lose 50lbs to feel like having a slight size advantage. Some fighters just have unique body types that give them advantages at smaller weights.

The worst part was she had at least five pounds of fat too much. Although it still would have been almost twenty pounds of water to cut. Anyway she is a youngster and was probably getting away with the weight cut until a couple times ago.
