Speaking to reporters in a post-fight media scrum after her win at UFC Fight Night 118 (via MMAjunkie), Aspen Ladd discussed winning her Octagon debut at the fight card against Lina Lansberg. Below are some highlights from the scrum.

Ladd on the emotions of her win for the fight card: “The emotions are on top of the world but already in the back of my mind. There’s things I can improve on, there’s a lot to get better at.”

Her thoughts on how the fight went overall: “I came out, started slow, but I could tell she was getting a little bit tired. And I was feeling very fresh. As soon as, between rounds, I started listening to my coaches, taking everything they had to say, everything went according to plan. So I just need to focus a little bit better and listen to them. As soon as I did, the fight was over.”

Aspen Ladd on her excitement with fighting in Poland: “I was extremely excited about (fighting in Poland). I’d never been outside of America. I mean, the time difference was something to get used to, as well as the tiny proportions when you get here. Like, our bathtub looks like a bucket. And the beds are about this big. But I got used to it. And it’s cool seeing a new place. Architecture and everything here is beautiful. People are nice.”

Aspen Ladd on what’s next after winning her UFC debut: “I’ll fight absolutely anybody they give me on any day. So as soon as the UFC is ready, I’m ready to go.”
