UFC FIGHT NIGHT: LADD VS DUMONT also known as UFC Vegas 40 aired live in Asia on Sunday, October 17 from UFC APEX in Las Vegas. The card was full of up-and-comers who delivered show-stopping performances, and a few veterans who proved why they are still game-changers.

Norma Dumont outclasses Aspen Ladd

Aspen Ladd stepped into the main event on late notice to replace Holly Holm and stepped up to featherweight to face the rising Norma Dumont. Dumont was prepared for the change and used her distance and jab to control much of the action. Ladd surged in later rounds, but it wasn't enough to overcome Dumont's mounting points. After the unanimous decision win, Dumont said,

"I'm so happy... she saved me because we were on the verge of not having a fight. We're going to back to the gym, fix everything... we're on the road to perfection... This is another step towards impressing many more people."

Andrei Arlovski continues his impressive run

In the co-main event, warhorse Andrei Arlovski and surging prospect Carlos Felipe delivered three rounds of a heavyweight banger. Arlovski's vast experience showed as he smartly weathered the younger Felipe's barrage. As exhaustion took its toll on the veteran, Felipe took advantage, but the judges awarded the work done by Arlovski with a unanimous decision win. Arlovski said,

"He wanted to brawl and I almost followed him, but I calmed down and kept to my game plan... It's an honor for me to be part of this great family, part of UFC, I've been here since the beginning... Dana White, matchmakers, all the other fighters, like Nike said, 'Just Do It'."

Mongolia’s first and only UFC athlete Danaa Batgerel halted the return of the more experienced Brandon Davis with his third in a row first-round KO. The 50-second finish landed Batgerel in third place on the list of longest active knockout streaks and earned him a $50,000 bonus for Performance of the Night.

With his second-round KO of newcomer Erick Gonzalez, Jim Miller broke records: the most fights in UFC history, 37, and the second-most wins, 22. While Gonzalez came out strong and landed on Miller, the veteran weathered the storm, rebounded, and got his first KO since UFC 200. It earned the veteran a Performance of the Night bonus, his 13th such award.
