Aspen Ladd’s dog wanted to “eat” UFC staff, she teases: “They deserve a risk bounty”
The UFC production team isn’t paid enough to take care of Aspen Ladd and his dog, the UFC Vegas 32 fighter teases.
There are two places you can find Ladd: in the Octagon or in the Hiking Mountains. Ladd (9-1) catches up with MMAMania.com ahead of his fight with Macy Chiasson (7-1) at UFC Vegas 32, which takes place at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, NV on Saturday July 24 via ESPN +. During the interview, Ladd laughs at the dangers UFC staff face in filming content with Ladd and his two dogs.
“My older dog is a pro at this point. She’s been through so many shoots. but my puppy is 10 months old and very protective. I think they deserve a risk bounty between the hike and Kylo wanting to eat them. It was a bit special this last time, ”says Ladd. “They should start asking a little more when they come here.
“He’s great, but there are a few things we need to work on,” she adds of her young husky. “Like remembering when he sees a bear, for example, because he recently hunted one.”
Ladd also talks about Miesha Tate’s return to action against Ladd’s teammate Marion Reneau.
“He is a legend in the sport. It’s definitely an interesting fight. It’s something I haven’t necessarily thought about yet because she announced her return and I was already booked. When I’m booked, it’s the end of the world and the end of the road. There is nothing beyond that point, ”Ladd told MMA Mania. “We’ll see how this fight and a few others go in my division and see what happens after mine.”
Ladd was scheduled to fight Julianna Pena in March of last year; however, Pena withdrew due to injury and Ladd eventually fought Sara McMann. Pena eventually returned in October and lost to Germaine de Randamie before rebounding to McMann at UFC 257 on January 24, 2021. Pena then dropped out of a promotion and apparently got into a women’s bantamweight title fight. in the UFC, despite ranking below Ladd.
“This is the state of the UFC,” Ladd said. “Anyone who’s willing to talk a little shit and really be that person gets more attention. It’s just a matter of whether you want to do it. If you want to venture into this area. It’s not me, man.
UFC Vegas 32 takes place at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, NV on Saturday, July 24. The ESPN + card is headlined by Cory Sandhagen against TJ Dillashaw in a fight that will likely determine the next UFC bantamweight title contender after Aljamain Sterling against Petr Yan 2.
