Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are here with the MMA Vivisection PRELIMS SHOW, breaking down a set of 6 bouts on this 11-bout UFC VEGAS 40: ‘Aspen Ladd vs. Norma Dumont’ Fight Night event Preliminary Card.
«It doesn’t look like the UFC is about to course correct on their low-quality Fight Night cards anytime soon. However, UFC Vegas 40 may just be their least enthralling entry of the year. In the main event, Aspen Ladd takes on Norma Dumont in a featherweight fight that’s hard to distinguish from anything in the prelims. Andrei Arlovski vs. Carlos Felipe in the co-main event only furthers that vibe.» — Zane Simon
