Malecki withdrew a week before the competition for unknown reasons, and Erin Blanchfield, a promotional rookie, took her place. As a result, Dumont’s fight was dropped off the card when he missed weight by 3.5lbs.
On May 22, 2021, Dumont fought Felicia Spencer at UFC Fight Night: Font vs. Garbrandt in place of Danyelle Wolf. She prevailed in a divided judgement. On October 16, 2021, Dumont and Holly Holm were slated to square off at UFC Fight Night 195.
On October 6, 2021, it was revealed that Aspen Ladd had to step in for Holm after the former competitor was forced to withdraw due to an injury. The fight’s short notice did not concern Dumont, who stated, “I’ve been working out for five rounds and 25 minutes nonstop. To me, that is nothing new.” Dumont prevailed by unanimous decision in the match.
On May 7, 2022, Dumont and Macy Chiasson squared off at UFC 274.
