Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Oct. 16, 2021, with an exciting women’s Featherweight bout that will see No. 3-ranked Bantamweight contender, Aspen Ladd, step in for injured Holly Holm to face Norma Dumont. In UFC Vegas 40’s co-main event, former UFC Heavyweight champion, Andrei Arlovski, will take on rising prospect Carlos Felipe.

Don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!

Godinez pressured Gomez early along the cage and used her wrestling to score some takedowns. Gomez did pretty well to return to her feet, but she was dragged down again. That’s when Godinez was able to threaten with an armbar and force Gomez to turn over and eventually tap. It was the first submission win in the career of “Loopy.”
