Loma Lookboonmee has her next assignment booked. She will be facing Bruna Brasil at UFC Fight Night 236 which is set for Las Vegas on February 10th.
She has won her last two fights but only got to compete once in 2022. Loma submitted Elise Reed in the second round at UFC 284 but subsequently suffered an arm injury in training which required surgery.
Loma (8-3) is not currently ranked but a third consecutive victory would surely propel her into the top 15 at strawweight. She has five wins from her seven UFC fights.

Brasil (9-3-1) is also unranked and earned a contract after impressing on Dana White’s Contender Series. Her UFC debut did not go to plan as she was knocked out by Denise Gomes, who Loma holds a win over.
Brasil is coming off a decision win over Shauna Bannon at UFC Fight Night 224. She will be competing at the Apex Centre for the first time, Loma has already fought there three times.

The event looks set to be headlined by a middleweight fight between Jack Hermansson (23-8)and Joe Pyfer (12-2). The former is ranked #10 while the latter will be looking to break into the top 15 with a win here.
