Norma Dumont and Ashlee Evans-Smith | Zuffa LLCFelicia Spencer has a new opponent for her next fight. Officials announced Thursday that Norma Dumont (5-1) has stepped in as a replacement for Danyelle Wolf to fight Spencer (8-2) at the upcoming UFC event scheduled for May 22 at UFC APEX in Las Vegas. Spencer first announced the change on The Dave Auken Show. Spencer has not competed since last June, where she lost a unanimous decision to featherweight champion Amanda Nunes at UFC 250. The Canadian is a former Invicta FC champion who is 2-2 in the UFC so far with wins over Zarah Fairn and Megan Anderson. For Dumont, this will be her return to the featherweight division after pair of failed attempts to make the bantamweight limit. Dumont missed weight by 3.5 pounds for a fight with Ashlee Evans-Smith in November, which Dumont won by unanimous decision, then she saw a bout in April cancelled after she again missed weight by 3.5 pounds. She later told MMA Fighting that with time and a change in diet she might still compete at 135 pounds in the future. The May 22 UFC event is scheduled to be headlined by a bantamweight bout between former UFC champion Cody Garbrandt and Rob Font.
