Takes decision from Sam Hughes
May 1, 2021
Lookboonmee defeated Sam Hughes via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
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 will take on Sam Hughes in a strawweight matchup at UFC Fight Night on May 1, MMAJunkie.com reports.
Lookboonmee will return to the Octagon in May after defeating Jinh Yu Frey via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night in October. She'll take on Hughes, who was initially expected to fight Feb. 27 before her matchup was removed from the card. Hughes most recently lost to Tecia Torres via TKO (doctor's stoppage) at UFC 256 in December. Hughes has a height advantage over Lookboonmee.
Back in win column
October 3, 2020
Lookboonmee defeated Jinh Yu Frey via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
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.
Next fight in the works
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.
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
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.
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.
