“Everyone Has Seen You Cheating” – .

Former UFC bantamweight champion Miesha Tate isn’t mince words when it comes to Aspen Ladd’s recent issues on the scales.

Seeking to return to the Octagon for the first time since December 2019 after recovering from a tear in the ACL and MCL, Ladd stepped on the scales last Friday ahead of his planned new booking with Macy Chiasson at the ‘UFC Vegas 38. Ladd first stepped on the scale – fully clothed – at 141.5 pounds, but after removing his clothes and entering the cube, the final weight was 137 pounds, where Ladd was seen visibly shake.

The fight was called off soon after, which Ladd said was Chiasson’s decision, as the former believes the difficulties came from having her period earlier in the week.

Ladd released another statement via Twitter on Friday, which Tate didn’t buy at all in response the next day.

“It’s one thing to lack weight, it’s another to try to trick the scales and use every excuse in the book for not weighing correctly,” Tate said. “Everyone saw you cheating and still came to a [pound] more. I bet you were quite 139.

Tate also responded to a question from a fan, which remains consistent with her belief that Ladd was not acting honorably when she stepped on the scales.

While Ladd’s future looks somewhat uncertain – mainly in terms of whether she will stay at 135 pounds or transition to featherweight – Tate is expected to headline the UFC event on November 20 against Ketlen. Vieira, who will be the second fight for “Cupcake” after returning from an almost five-year retirement from the sport.

Ladd is currently 4-1 inside the Octagon, which includes stoppage wins over Lina Lansberg, Tonya Evinger and Yana Kunitskaya.

Following Tate’s comments, Ladd responded by choosing not to embark on another exchange, but instead taking charge of the mistakes she made by missing weight.
