Significant Stats | UFC Fight Night: Ladd vs Dumont

UFC News

Key Stats: 4.98 strikes landed per minute, 100% takedown defense, 2.86 strikes absorbed per minute

What It Means: A skilled striker, Dumont is comfortable fighting off the backfoot and countering with combinations. She has fast hands and often looks to parry her opponent’s punches with her lead hand to open up windows for her own shots. She’ll mix in leg kicks occasionally, but her hands are her best weapons. She exhibits good takedown defense and utilizes the opportunity to land knees to the body and elbows up top. She can switch stances pretty freely, as well.

What to Look For in the Fight: Between the two, Dumont is the more fluid striker. Her combinations are crisp, and she has real comfort going between orthodox and southpaw. Dumont was able to shuck off takedown attempts from Felicia Spencer, so it’ll be interesting to see how Ladd does if she wants to get the fight to the ground. Dumont showed the ability to get her own takedowns and maintain control, as well. The clinch situations will show a lot in this fight. Ladd does probably have the outright power advantage but given that this fight is contested at featherweight and is her first at 145, how her strength and power translate is something to note.
