The top Bantamweight fighter Aspen Ladd recently spoke to Sportskeeda and went on to reflect on the recent controversy that sparked from the leaked footage of Dustin Poirier’s sparring session.
Ladd was critical of Colby Covington, who was the one to release the video of Poirier knocking out an amateur in sparring. Conor McGregor Leaks 2022 UFC Fight In Photo?

Aspen Ladd believes that a sparring session should only be recorded with the consent of both parties involved, and should not be leaked under any circumstances. She joined in for an interview with John Hyon Ko and said:
“Nah, I don’t think that should be done. If you are sparring in somebody’s gym or vice versa, it shouldn’t get out there. I mean if you have an agreement you both wanna take a video to study it or whatever. But no, you should never release that. That’s terrible.”
Aspen Ladd has previously sustained a torn ACL and MCL that put her out of action for more than a year. Ladd hasn’t competed since December 2019 when she stopped current contender Yana Kunitskaya via third-round TKO. She is set to make a return to the octagon against Macy Chiasson at UFC Fight Night on July 24.
