De Randamie vs Ladd Fights
De Randamie has not been really busy over the previous few decades. She won the inaugural women’s featherweight title with a decision over Holly Holm in February 2017 and defeated former women’s bantamweight title challenger Raquel Pennington in November of last year. That fight went to the scorecards.
As for Ladd, she has fought four times since January 2017, racking up wins against Sijara Eubanks in both Invicta FC and the UFC. She also defeated Lina Lansberg and ex-Invicta FC bantamweight champ Tonya Evinger under the UFC banner. Ladd won fight-night bonus awards because of her two recent victories.
De Randamie vs Ladd Skill Sets
De Randamie was a champion kickboxer before making the fulltime transition into MMA. That experience shows in her fighting style. She’s great power, fantastic control of distance, and with her background in muay Thai, she’s not someone to trifle with in the clinch, where she can land heavy knees into the body and restrain her opponent’s body posture through the Thai plum. The ex-champ’s advantages in the striking department and her achieve needs to allow her to work her jab efficiently and if Ladd does rush in, de Randamie could very well catch her with a counter punch or elbow.
There are worries about Ladd, concerns she addressed after her May triumph over Eubanks. “It was a fistfight/brawl, which was partly my fault,” she confessed. “I should’ve listened to my coaches better. I just feel like I have a lot more to operate on.”
Ladd probably wishes to avoid getting into a brawl with de Randamie. She’ll also have to avoid getting caught with kisses at distance from de Randamie. Ladd is a powerful striker and can pour on the volume as her typical of 5.68 significant strikes landed per minute suggests. Ladd might want to initiate the battle seeing how she fares with her standing striking. If she fights in that section look for her trainers to call for takedown efforts.
Ladd can lay down deep floor strikes and de Randamie has fought when she finds on the mat. Ladd’s takedown precision is a remarkable 80%, therefore she should have the ability to to get de Randamie to the ground, at which the ex-champ’s advantages will be completely negated.
