Thailand’s Lookboonmee Defeated at UFC Fight Night 198



Thailand's Loma Lookboonmee Defeated at UFC Fight Night 198

Thailand’s women’s UFC champion Loma Lookboonmee was defeated UFC Fight Night 198 by Mexico’s Lupita “Loopy” Godinez on Saturday in Las Vegas.

The 25-year-old Lookboonmee, who remains the only Thai fighter in history to compete in the women’s UFC’s Octagon, was supposed to battle Cheyanne Buys at the UFC Apex facility. However, the strawweight was matched up with Godinez on short notice when Cheyanne Buys tested positive for Covid-19.

Unfortunately for Lookboonmee, “Loopy” Godinez made the most of the short-notice opportunity. Loopy used a wrestling-style game plan to win a unanimous decision victory after three rounds.

The loss marks the end of a two-fight win streak for Lookboonmee. The strawweight fighter was riding a pair of decision triumphs over Jinh Yu Frey and Sam Hughes. She now has a 6-3 record overall and she’s 3-2 in the Octagon.

Best of the best in the UFC

Meanwhile, Loopy is now 7-2 overall and 2-2 in the UFC. Since October of this year, Loopy’s prospect has submitted Silvana Gomez Juarez, given up a decision to Luana Carolina, and now beaten Loma — not bad for a few weeks of work.

After her win over Thailand’s Loma Lookboonmee, Loopy seems to be happy with the way things are going.

“It’s been so amazing,”  She told UFC News backstage after her victory. “People support me so much – my teammates, my team, my family. I’m so happy, I’m in a really great spot in my life right now and I want to keep it going. I’m so happy and I couldn’t ask for a better life right now.”

Loopy also gave Loma Lookboonmee some respect for surviving all three rounds.

I was looking for the finish but she did a great job defending,” she said of Loma Lookboonmee. I cannot be upset about that, I’m competing with the best of the best in the UFC.
