It’s been a struggle to maintain focus on some of the lower card belts heading into UFC 229 this weekend because let’s face it, McGregor/Khabib is so highly anticipated that everywhere you turn its either a ‘The Eagle’ or ‘The Notorious one’ all up in your grill, but if you’re interested in some potential money makers this weekend I think Aspen Ladd might be a great play for punters.
Aspen is a young up and coming prospect in the womans bantamweight division, currently ranked #9 in the official UFC rankings holding a professional record of 6 fights and 0 losses with only one fight going to the judges scorecards when I say ‘Aspen Ladd is straight up bad’ I do not mean this in the literal sense… she is one tough s.o.b !
Heading into another great UFC event this weekend playing host to the beautiful Sau Paulo, Brazil. One fight I have my eye on, in particular, is Gillian Robertson vs Bueno Silva.
Better known as ‘The Savage’, ATT (American Top Team) breakout star Gillian is already on 2 fight win streak in the UFC which she claimed within 5 months of signing with the organization beating both Emily Whitmire and Molly McCann convincingly via submission.
The Canadian savage Gillian trains alongside some of the best fighters in the world including Amanda Nunes, Tyron Woodley, Tecia Torres, Colby Covington over at ATT and it’s this type of experience and knowledge which I think will give her the advantage this weekend.
