Aspen Ladd, a seasoned UFC veteran, is set to make her Bellator debut in an electrifying featherweight showdown against Ekaterina Shakalova at Bellator Paris on May 17.

Ladd's transition to Bellator comes after her stint with PFL, where she faced off against top-tier competition like Kayla Harrison. Despite a challenging run in PFL, Ladd brings a wealth of experience and talent to the Bellator cage.

Her last fight in PFL saw her in a featured bout against Harrison, ending in a unanimous decision loss. However, Ladd's journey in PFL showcased her skills with notable victories, including a win over former Bellator featherweight champion Julia Budd.

With PFL restructuring its divisions for the current season, Ladd's move to Bellator aligns with the ongoing champions series, highlighting the promotion's commitment to showcasing top-tier talent.

On the other side of the cage stands Ekaterina Shakalova, who is no stranger to Bellator. Shakalova, with a previous Bellator appearance under her belt, looks to bounce back after a split decision loss to Dayana Silva.

The Ladd vs. Shakalova matchup adds to the excitement of the Bellator Paris event, headlined by a thrilling lightweight title clash between champion Usman Nurmagomedov and Alexander Shabliy.

The upcoming Bellator Paris event promises a night of exhilarating fights, with Ladd and Shakalova set to deliver a captivating battle for MMA fans worldwide.
