Since dipping her toe into the professional pool at Invicta Fighting Championships, Aspen Ladd (4-0) has revealed a new devastating wrinkle in her game with each visit to the cage. When Invicta FC returns to the Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Missouri for Invicta FC 21: Anderson Vs. Tweet, version 5.0 of Ladd will showcase the value in her prizefighting stock when she crumples Sijara ‘Sarge’ Eubanks (2-1), a master of manipulation on the mat at 135-pounds, into a wilted heap of bones and flesh.
In Ladd’s young career, she’s yet to visit the judges’ scorecards; moreover, the malleable bantamweight representing MMAGOLD, a factory out of El Dorado Hills, California manufacturing a deep stable of fighters, never stales in between contracts, constantly downloading information for further enhancement. On January 21, 2016, fight fans logged into UFC Fight Pass will find Ladd’s aggressive style will be compatible with their bloodlust.
When an opponent wants to play checkers with Ladd, she’ll play chess. When a seven-time Jiu-Jitsu World Champion, such as Eubanks, wants to play human chess, Ladd will simply smash all their pieces into rubble. As Ladd’s hype train glides along and continues collecting passengers, Eubanks plans to make a habit of derailing the ascent of others. While seconds subtracted from the clock at Invicta FC 18, the buzz around Amber Lynn Orr’s debut became a murmur when Eubanks buried her under a pressure-packed assault, eventually defeating the newcomer by way of TKO in the first round.
Any questions marks surrounding Ladd will be ironed into exclamation points by the wealth of knowledge in her coaching staff. In fact, on Episode 9 of the MMAGOLD Podcast (link here), Doug Casebier, the team’s strength and conditioning coach and nutritionist punctuated the intensity of Ladd’s preparations,
“I think to myself, ‘Can this Aspen beat up the last Aspen.’ The only way that can happen is if she shows up every day, every day. You have to train so hard that the coach has to send you home, and that’s what she does.”
