Loma Lookboonmee Has Successful UFC Debut In Singapore

One-time Pancrase fighter Loma Lookboonmee got her first UFC win on Saturday, defeating Aleksandra Albu on the undercard of UFC Fight Night Singapore. Lookboonmee also made history as the first fighter from Thailand to sign with the UFC.

Lookboonmee fought for three rounds against Albu, out-striking the Russian fighter. When going to the scorecards, Lookboonmee was favoured on two of the three scorecards, giving her the win (30-27 Lookboonmee, 29-28 Albu & 30-29 Lookboonmee).

Lookboonmee improved to 4-1 as a professional. Her three wins came from fighting in Pancrase and Invicta FC. Her singular loss came to RIZIN and DEEP JEWELS fighter Suwanan Boonsorn, A.K.A AMP The Rocket. Boonsorn recently got a first-round victory at DEEP JEWELS 26.

The fight was the first strawweight fight for Lookboonmee, who had previously fought at atomweight throughout her career.
