UFC Fight Night on ESPN+: de Randamie vs Ladd in Sacramento streams exclusively on ESPN+ this Saturday, July 13, at 5 p.m. ET from the Golden 1 Center. The main event features former featherweight champion Germaine de Randamie (8-3-0) vs. Aspen Ladd (8-0-0), arguably the top two contenders in the women’s bantamweight division at the moment. In the co-main, looking to defeat Urijah Faber’s (34-10-0) comeback in his hometown, Ricky Simon (15-1-0) is looking to jumpstart a rise up the rankings as the second half of 2019 gets rolling.
Nearly two years after beating Holly Holm for the inaugural UFC Women’s Featherweight Championship at UFC 208, de Randamie returned last November, marching into Raquel Pennington’s backyard in Denver, Colorado, where she scored a unanimous decision win over the recent title challenger. The 24-year-old Ladd has validated all the hype and then some since arriving in the UFC, registering three wins to move to 8-0 while showing all the elements that make her one of the top young talents in the sport.
Faber retired on December 17, 2016 after securing a unanimous decision victory over Brad Pickett at home in Sacramento. After declining a few short notice opportunities, the chance to return at home was too good to pass up and now the new father will make the walk again, looking to secure win No. 35 in his Hall of Fame career. This is a massive opportunity for Simon, the mullet-rocking Pacific Northwest product who has won eight straight overall, including each of his first three Octagon appearances, to establish himself as one of the top up-and-coming fighters in the bantamweight division.
