Next fight in the works
StrawweightUFC
July 28, 2020
Lookboonmee is in line to take on Jinh Yu Frey in a strawweight matchup at an undetermined location Oct. 3, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Lookboonmee took a split decision from Aleksandra Albu in her UFC debut and followed that up by dropping a decision to Angela Hill in February. She was able to hang tough with Hill, actually winning the battle of significant strikes 53-to-48. Lookboonmee will now focus her energy on another relatively green UFC combatant, as Frey has just one fight under her belt, tapping to Kay Hansen last July. Lookboonmee will be giving up two inches in height and four inches in reach when the cage doors close.

Drops decision in sophomore effort
StrawweightUFC
February 22, 2020
Lookboonmee lost to Angela Hill via unanimous decision (27-30, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night 168 in Auckland, New Zealand on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Lookboonmee was scheduled to fight a much less experienced fighter in Hannah Goldy, so it's understandable that she might have a hard time with such a seasoned veteran as Hill. While she is powerful and accurate, she was undersized in this matchup and fell into the Muay Thai trap of waiting too long on an aggressive opponent. While she has a definite skill set, whether or not she can compete with the bigger fighters in this division remains to be seen. Lookboonmee falls to 4-2-0 in professional MMA as a result of the loss.

Shows that Muay Thai is still a strong base for MMA

October 27, 2019
Lookboonmee defeated Alexandra Albu via split decision (28-29, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Singapore.
ANALYSIS
This was a very impressive debut from Lookboonmee. In many ways, she is still just a Muay Thai fighter. However, that was more than enough for her to score the victory here. The fight was relatively close at distance, as Lookboonmee had a slight edge 38 to 34. However, the biggest differentiation between the two came in the clinch. Lookboonmee outlanded Albu 61 to 29 in the position and continually scored with knees and elbows. Even though Lookboonmee comes from a primarily striking background, she was able to hold her own in the wrestling game. She allowed only one of three takedown attempts from Albu, and the fight mostly remained on the feet.

Lookboonmee will take on Alexandra Albu at UFC Singapore on Oct. 26, Nolan King of MMA Junkie reports.
ANALYSIS
Lookboonmee will make her mark as the first Thai fighter to square off in the UFC when she debuts in late October. She has earned a victory in three of her four professional fights, with her only loss coming via submission last November. The 23-year-old takes on a fighter in Albu that has three bouts under her belt in the UFC, sporting a 2-1 record thus far.
