UFC is planning an event for October 3rd, with the first matchup set to be on the show being a strawweight battle between Loma Lookboonmee and Jinh Yu Frey. News of the matchup was first reported by Farah Hannoun and John Morgan of MMA Junkie.
Frey made her UFC debut in June, facing fellow newcomer Kay Hansen. The close battle saw Hansen win via triangle-armbar in the third round. The former Invicta FC Atomweight Champion will look for her first win when facing Lookboonmee.
Lookboonmee’s UFC career has been similarly short so far, having won a fight and lost another. After her split decision win last October over Aleksandra Album, Lookboonmee returned to face Angela Hill. Losing the fight via decision, Lookboonmee was given the second loss of her six-fight MMA career.
It is not known yet where UFC’s October 3rd event is set to happen at.
