Norma Dumont ‘fighting to survive’ at UFC Vegas 40: ‘I don’t have 50 dollars to spare’

Featherweight contender Norma Dumont is set to have her first-ever UFC main event bout, and the timing could not have been better for the Brazilian. Paired up against prospect Aspen Ladd for next Saturday’s UFC Vegas 40, she has big aspirations about the outcome of the fight.

In an interview with Combate, Dumont commented on her current financial situation and how she needs all the dollars she can get in order to turn things around for herself. At the moment, Norma claims to have little to no money in the bank, but the chance of earning a big payday motivates her even more to perform well against Ladd.
