Loma Lookboonmee

Thailand

Drops decision in Vegas
StrawweightUFC
November 20, 2021
Lookboonmee lost to Loopy Godinez via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
This fight was a tad closer than the scorecards would lead you to believe, but the result was quite clear from the start. Lookboonmee had all sorts of difficulty with the physicality and wrestling game of Godinez. She allowed five successful takedowns for more than seven minutes worth of control time, although Loma wasn't in a ton of trouble on the mat. Still, every second she spent on her back was one in which she couldn't generate offense of her own. Although Lookboonmee is just 25 years old, she has little power in her hands and has displayed no real ground game to date. The odds are against her going on any sort of run despite her youth.

Takes decision from Sam Hughes

Lookboonmee defeated Sam Hughes via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Lookboonmee won quite easily despite not looking the part of a -400 favorite -- the biggest on the entire card. Blessed with a significant edge in terms of grappling skill and body control, Lookboonmee managed to land four successful takedowns on the larger Hughes over the course of the first two rounds. She also connected on the more effective strikes despite the overall striking numbers being close. Lookboonmee's biggest issue was the fact Hughes kept her pinned against the cage for extended periods of time. That's an issue to keep an eye on moving forward considering Lookboonmee checks in at just 5-foot-1. She has now won two in a row and three of her first four UFC bouts, with each one going to a decision.

Lookboonmee defeated Jinh Yu Frey via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
Lookboonmee ate a few shots early while getting a feel for her range, but really started to get momentum in her favor when she initiated a Thai clinch that allowed her to land several hard elbows. She followed those up with several knees to the body before going back to the elbows, which opened up a cut below her opponent's right eye. Lookboonmee went back to the well in Round 2, punishing Frey with several more elbows and knees in the clinch. She was never overly aggressive, but she picked her spots and took what her opponent gave her. Lookboonmee entered Round 3 easily ahead on the scorecards, but was taken down almost immediately by Frey. After letting Frey take side control, Lookboonmee kept her cool and eventually scrambled back to her feet with little damage done. It was a striking affair the rest of the way out, as Lookboonmee landed a big left head kick and did more damage in the clinch. She dominated the striking numbers in all three rounds, making this one an easy call for the judges.
