The MMA Vivisection - UFC Vegas 40: Ladd vs. Dumont picks, odds, & analysis

Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch return to break down this week’s UFC event in Las Vegas, NV. With picks and odds for every fight on the card. From Norma Dumont vs. Aspen Ladd in the main event down to Istela Nunes vs. Ariane Carnelossi in the opening prelim.

It doesn’t look like the UFC is about to course correct on their low-quality Fight Night cards anytime soon. However, UFC Vegas 40 may just be their least enthralling entry of the year. In the main event, Aspen Ladd takes on Norma Dumont in a featherweight fight that’s hard to distinguish from anything in the prelims. Andrei Arlovski vs. Carlos Felipe in the co-main event only furthers that vibe.
