Mandy Bohm has been given a new opponent for her UFC debut, now being set to face Ariane Lipski at the promotion’s September 4th show. Lipski will be replacing Taila Santos, who has been forced out of the lineup due to visa issues, per a report from Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting.
The bout joins a “Fight Night” UFC card. The event was originally being targeted to take place in London, England, however, a recent update from Ariel Helwani has said that the show has been moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
