Aspen Ladd spoke with MMAjunkie about her fight with Holly Holm at UFC 235 being cancelled. The UFC announced late last week that the fight would no longer take place on the show, which takes place on March 2nd. Highlights of the interview are below:

On losing out on the fight against Holm: “I just want to fight. I’m not chasing a title. I’m really not. I’m 23 and there’s a lot people I need to fight and I want to fight as often as I can against as many people as I can to make a name for myself. We’re all in the UFC, we’re all good. I’ve only fought a couple of them. Give me a fight.”

On the reports that the fight was pulled because of Holm’s contract talks with the UFC: “I’ve been hearing the same stuff we all have with the rumors, but I wouldn’t be shocked. There’s not really that many options left to fight Amanda right now, so it makes sense. If that happens, it’s definitely not surprising to me. It’s just surprising in the context we were supposed to fight.”
