ARIANE LIPSKI VS MANDY BOHM LOWDOWN
Ariane Lipski (13-7) replaces Taila Santos hoping to bounce back from two knockouts on the trot. She started her UFC career with two defeats back in 2019 which snapped a nine-fight win streak. She lost unanimous decisions to Joanne Calderwood and Molly McCann but then pulled a couple dubs back with a unanimous decision over Isabela de Padua and then putting on her best performance wrapping Luana Carolina up in a ruthless kneebar. However, she is now coming off two disappointing TKO losses to Antonina Shevchenko and Montana De La Rosa so badly needs a reply here.
She welcomes Mandy Bohm (7-0(1)) to the UFC who is on an impressive seven-fight win streak. Her first six pro fights were under her local German MMA Championship banner and in 2019 she appeared on a TKO Major League card which was headlined by Ciryl Gane. She submitted Jade Masson-Wong and earnt a call-up to Bellator where she earnt a unanimous decision over Griet Eeckhout. A few cancelled fights later, she meets Lipski in the APEX.
ARIANE LIPSKI VS MANDY BOHM PREDICTION
Bohm has not been very active although she has the momentum and slight reach advantage. Lipski has decent jiu-jitsu and power in her hands but has poor takedown defence. However, fortunately for her, Bohm is expected to keep the fight on the feet as she is an excellent striker.
So, this should be an exciting striking battle with a lot of clinch work where either fighter can land damage. Bohm will give Lipski a very tough fight, but the Brazilian’s experience will be important here. As long as she is patient, feels the German out and avoids any wrestling, she has the skill and power to win the stand-up battle.
