UFC has signed one of the best Muay Thai female fighters in the world. And that is a fact.
Konklak “Loma Lookboonmee” Suphisara, 23, took it to Instagram where she posted a photo of herself signing the Ultimate Fighting Championship contract. Loma’s deal is historic because she’s the first MMA fighter from Thailand to ever sign with UFC. But that’s nothing new for her – Lookboonmee was the first Thai fighter to sign with Invicta FC and then Pancrase.

I am extremely excited to announce that I will be moving up to straw-weight to make my UFC debut, 26 October in Singapore. I want to first thank Shannon Knapp and Invicta for starting off my MMA career. I wouldn’t have been here without their faith in me. To my coaches George Hickman, Frank Hickman, Alex Schild, Andrew Wood, Tarek Suliman, Emilio Urrutia thank you for training me and to all training partners at Tiger Muay Thai for always pushing me, thank you to my manager Danny Rubenstein ,Frances Watthannaya for this incredible opportunity, and thank you to my family who’ve been with me through thick and thin. 🥰🥰♥️♥️ . . . #ufc #mma #wmma #ufcsingapore #invictafc #fight #fighter #buriram #tigermuaythai #hickmanbroswrestlings #lookboonmee #thai #thailand #thaimma
