LAS VEGAS – When she last stepped foot into the octagon 19 months ago, Aspen Ladd appeared destined to challenge for a UFC title in the very near future. But following a canceled bout with Julianna Pena and then a knee surgery that forced her to the sidelines for the better part of a year, Ladd says she’s focused only on the immediate task at hand. “It almost feels surreal to finally be back after so much and so long,” Ladd told MMA Junkie at a media day at the UFC Apex. Ladd (9-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) makes her long-awaited return to the cage at Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 27 , where she faces Macy Chiasson (7-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) at the UFC Apex. The bout serves as the co-main event of the card, which airs on ESPN and streams on ESPN+.
