Kansas City, Mo. — Invicta Fighting Championships has added a new face to its flyweight division.
Joining the 125-pound ranks will be 19-year-old Californian Aspen Ladd. The fighter will make her professional debut in the Invicta cage after amassing an 8-1 record as amateur.
In Ladd’s most recent outing, she captured the Tuff-N-Uff flyweight title with a first-round submission win over Roma Pawelek. The victory marked Ladd’s fifth win inside the first round and her sixth career finish.
A native of Pioneer, Calif., Ladd is part of Team MMAGOLD and trains under the tutelage of coach Jim West.
“I’m thrilled,” said Ladd of signing with the promotion. “It’s been my dream for years now, ever since I first started fighting.
“I always assumed there would be three things in my life: work, fighting and school. This is the combination. I get to do my passion for work and I couldn’t be happier. I just have to prove myself.”
Look for Ladd’s Invicta debut in early 2015.
