Norma Dumont and Chelsea Chandler found themselves on the brink of a physical altercation backstage following their face-off ahead of the highly anticipated UFC on ESPN 49 event.
Dumont started her professional mixed martial arts career in September 2016. After establishing her reputation in the Brazilian regional scene, she joined the UFC in February 2020. Although her promotional debut against Megan Anderson resulted in a loss, Dumont displayed remarkable resilience as she secured impressive victories over Felicia Spencer and Aspen Ladd.
Dumont’s most recent appearance was in a thrilling encounter against Karol Rosa at UFC Fight Night 222 just three months ago. Demonstrating her skills in the octagon, she emerged victorious with a unanimous decision from the judges. With the win, she extended her winning streak to two.
During the intense face-off at UFC on ESPN 49, Norma Dumont and Chelsea Chandler engaged in a heated altercation backstage. As they walked away after an intense stare-down, the tension escalated with a barrage of verbal insults.
Dumont seemed to be the aggressor, insulting Chandler and responding angrily when Chandler raised her middle finger. The situation became so heated that bystanders had to intervene to prevent an actual physical confrontation.
In her passionate outburst, Dumont exclaimed: ““If the courage ends quickly, too much conversation. Get here. Stay in this face of loose f**king p***y. *Middle finger* I have too. I have one too. It’s Fortnite. You live… tomorrow!”
Chelsea Chandler first caught the attention of fans with her remarkable athletic prowess inside the octagon during her time under the Invicta banner in November 2018.
Following an initial setback, she went on to achieve a winning streak of four matches before joining the UFC roster in 2022. She started her UFC journey on a high note, securing a quick first-round finish against Julija Stoliarenko in her debut bout.
As the more seasoned UFC athlete, Norma Dumont aims to put an end to Chandler’s winning streak when they clash in the octagon at UFC on ESPN 49 on July 15th. This highly anticipated event will take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.
