    "We were the ones that were ready to take it,” Ladd told MMA Junkie. “I mean, you’ve got to use your brain a little bit there – a little bit of deductive reasoning. After the last one, you think they called me first? No, they called other people, and it’s a dangerous opponent on short notice. Nobody else took it. We did, so we get the opportunity.”

    Great way to win some fans there Aspen. Miss weight more than once....look terrible on the scale....then tell people that WE should use our brains a little bit.

    Talk about arrogance.

    I'll use deductive reasoning for her. Dana called her up and said, "If you don't take this fight at 145 you're cut."

    So I'm totally out of the loop.

    What is this about?

    I'm so confused.

    Herb really fucked up on this one. Ladd was about to block a bunch of more punches with that head of hers.

    If she was the last choice and no one at that division was willing to fight than she some what right. The whole idea that she was gifted a main event is to me not the problem, since its in a division that's really needs more talent.

    it doesn't matter. She got smoked by GDR, she has no chance against Nunes at 135 or 145.
    Fuck her.

    Ladd missed weight for her last 135 bout a week or so ago (not her first time misssing weight or cancelling a bout). She got "rewarded" by headlining a fight at 145. Now she's telling us fans it's not a reward and we should use our brains.

    This is why Amanda went to the ground and Holly tried to take her down. She’ll light you the fuck up.

    I have no problem with her getting the fight, just to be clear. I have a problem with her shitty attitude. Be more grateful for the fight and realize you f-ed at 135. Don't try to point fingers at the fans and talk down to us like we are idiots.

    Uhh, am I the only one that read the article and realize there's absolutely nothing arrogant about what she said? She's basically stating that they didn't call her first, and people pissed about her getting a main event spot after missing weight should use their brains to understand WHY she's getting the shot. She didn't claim she deserved it, she didn't claim she's entitled to it. I wasn't a fan before, but now I am. Aspen "Use Your Brains" Ladd is my new favorite WMMA fighter.

    I know Sherdog and the UFC shit in her, for not fighting Cyborg, but GDR is actually a very talented fighter.

    Aspen Ladd, 159lbs. On fightnight*

    And that was when she made weight, 135 limit. Shes probably 170+ now.
