Aspen Ladd and Sijara Eubanks first met at Invicta Fighting Championships where the former won by unanimous decision. They have a chance to run it back at a bigger stage this weekend for UFC Fight Night 152. Let the numbers below get you acquainted on these powerhouse bantamweights.

UFC appearances

Both fighters have graced the Octagon twice. Ladd made her promotional debut almost a year earlier than Eubanks did, specifically on Oct. 21, 2017. She fought and defeated Lina Lansberg by TKO in the second round of their UFC Fight Night 118 encounter. For her second bout, Ladd made short work of Tonya Evinger whom she stopped at UFC 229 nearly a year later. That performance earned her a maiden post-fight bonus.

While Ladd knocked out her first two UFC opponents, Eubanks went the longer route, taking both fights by unanimous decision. She fought for the first time inside the Octagon on June 1, 2018 at UFC Fight Night 131 against Lauren Murphy. Eubanks returned five months later and beat the much more experienced Roxanne Modaferri in a rematch at UFC 230.

Pre-Octagon experience

Ladd prides a sterling amateur record of 8-1, winning the flyweight title of various promotions, namely Ultimate Reno Combat, West Coast FC and Tuff-N-Uff. Her pro record is even more phenomenal at 7-0. Before joining the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Ladd fought five times for Invicta FC, the last of which ended in a notable unanimous decision victory over Eubanks.

Eubanks joined The Ultimate Fighter 26 where she reached the finals by beating Maia Stevenson, DeAnna Bennett and Modaferri. She was supposed to face Nicco Montaño in the finale but pulled out following a kidney failure due to a tough weight cut. Before making her official UFC debut, Eubanks went 2-2, fighting three times for Invicta FC.

Wins by knockout

In Ladd’s seven career victories, five came by TKO, two of which were in the first round. Her victims were Ana Carolina Vidal, Kelly McGill, Jessica Holy, Lansberg and Evinger.

As for Eubanks, the Springfield, Massachusetts, native owns two victories by TKO, and these were against Gina Begley and Amber Lynn.

Wins by submission

Ladd, an MMAGold Fight Team standout, owns one submission victory over current UFC strawweight Amanda Cooper. She submitted Cooper via armbar in round two of their Invicta FC 14 bout. Eubanks, on the other hand, has yet to notch her first professional win by tapout, although she did score one at TUF 26 -- a second-round kimura finish of Maia Stevenson.

Career losses

Apart from a decision loss in her amateur days to now top strawweight Cynthia Calvillo, Ladd has no other defeat on her record. On the other end, Eubanks has suffered two setbacks in her professional career. The other woman to beat her was Katlyn Chookagian, and it happened at Cage Fury Fighting Championships 52.
