Norma Dumont is wanting to battle for UFC gold in her next battle and trusts it ought to be the between time title.
In the headliner of UFC Vegas 40 on Saturday, Dumont pulled off an irritated as she beat Aspen Ladd by choice. She controlled the battle and effortlessly won the battle which is three straight successes and two directly at featherweight. With the division being so shallow, Dumont is trusting the UFC books a break title battle among her and Holly Holm, who was her unique rival.
"I don't need the division to get stale and for us not to have battles," Dumont said at the UFC Vegas 40 post-battle public interview. "I would be thoroughly ready to have that battle [with Holm]. I comprehend Amanda will do a title protection and afterward on a potential battle with Valentina [Shevchenko] so we'd simply have the option to confront each other by mid-year one year from now.
“So I definitely do not want to be not fighting for that long. I think a fight even for an interim belt with Holly could bring not just a fight for its own but to bring some attention to the division and to have other athletes come into the division with this particular winner of this fight to go on and fight Amanda.”
Whether or not the UFC makes an interim title fight is uncertain, but it does make sense to rebook the Holm fight. Holm is without a dance partner at bantamweight so fighting at featherweight does make sense, and with Dumont beating Ladd, it adds some more hype to that fight which could headline a Fight Night card as an interim title fight or just be on the main card of another event if it isn’t for a title.
Regardless, Dumont continues to impress in the UFC and could very well be fighting for a UFC title in her next fight.
