Aspen Ladd vs. Olena Kolesnyk among announced fights to complete 2023 PFL 2 lineup

Aspen Ladd’s return to the PFL cage has been booked as she will take part in the promotion’s women’s featherweight season.

The former UFC contender is set to take on Olena Kolesnyk at 2023 PFL 2 on April 7 at The Theater at Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas. The Ladd-Kolesnyk matchup was one of several announced Monday to complete the PFL 2 lineup.

They join the previously announced main and co-main event bouts, with Ante Delija vs. Yorgan De Castro and Larissa Pacheco vs. Julia Budd.

Ladd (10-3) is coming off a successful PFL debut, having beaten former Bellator champion Julia Budd in a showcase bout at the 2022 PFL Championships back in November. She defeated Budd by split decision. It was her first fight since her release from the UFC.

Kolesnyk (7-5) is looking to bounce back from a loss to 2022 PFL women’s lightweight champion Larissa Pacheco. Prior to the defeat, the Ukrainian fighter was on a two-fight winning streak.
