Aspen Ladd vs. Macy Chiasson scratched from UFC Vegas 32 event

Esther Lin, MMA FightingUFC Vegas 32 has taken a hit ahead of Saturday’s card. UFC officials revealed on Thursday that the fight between Aspen Ladd and Macy Chiasson will no longer be happening at the event due to an injury. The promotion did not specify which fighter suffered the injury, but a person with knowledge of the shift told MMA Fighting that Chiasson was forced to withdraw. Ladd was scheduled to make her first appearance since a third-round TKO win over Yana Kunitskaya in December 2019. The 26-year-old suffered a torn ACL and MCL prior to her scheduled matchup with Sara McMann in June 2020 and had recovered from the injury. Ladd is 4-1 since signing with the promotion, which includes stoppage wins over Lina Lansberg and Tonya Evinger. Chiasson holds victories in her previous two appearances in fights against Shanna Young and Marion Reneau. The No. 9 ranked fighter in MMA Fighting’s Global Rankings has won five of six octagon appearances, including a second-round submission of Pannie Kianzad to win The Ultimate Fighter Season 28. With the removal of the 135-pound bout, UFC Vegas 32 will move forward with 11 fights, including the main event between bantamweights Cory Sandhagen and T.J. Dillashaw.

Bec Rawlings signs new deal to return to BKFC, next fight expected in October

Esther Lin, MMA FightingBec Rawlings is back in BKFC. The “Queen of Bare Knuckle,” who previously claimed a title in her debut bout back in 2018, has signed a new deal to return to the promotion. BKFC officials announced the news on Thursday along with further confirmation from Rawlings’ manager Brian Butler from Suckerpunch Entertainment when speaking to MMA Fighting. During her previous stint with BKFC, Rawlings went a perfect 3-0 including wins over Alma Garcia, Cecilia Flores and Britain Hart. It was after her last bout and the second defense of her title that Rawlings decided to make a return to mixed martial arts where she signed with Bellator MMA. Rawlings amassed a 1-1 record with the Viacom owned promotion before parting ways with the organization earlier this year. Now the Australian born slugger will take off the gloves once again to jump into bare-knuckle competition with a much deeper division than when she left BKFC two years ago. In recent months, BKFC has signed several high profile women’s fighters including UFC veterans Paige VanZant, Pearl Gonzalez and Rachael Ostovich. VanZant vs. Ostovich will actually headline BKFC 19 on Friday night and the winner could be in a prime position to potentially face Rawlings in her return. As of now, Rawlings has not booked an opponent but it’s expected her first appearance back in BKFC will come on Oct. 22.
