Lipski has suffered defeats against Antonina Shevchenko and Montana De La Rosa in her last 2 fights in the promotion. She was finished in both of those fights. In fact, as ‘Queen of Violence’ has won only 2 out of her last 6 fights in the promotion, the onus will be upon her to prove a point in a very important fight for her UFC career this weekend.

Bohm, who last fought at Bellator, will make her debut inside the Octagon this weekend. Other than that, ‘Monster’ has competed under the banners of TKO and GMC. The 32-year-old will look to build on her impressive professional resume when the Octagon door closes this weekend.

Lipski hasn’t looked very good in her recent fights. Also, she has been finished by strikes in her last 2 contests, making her ability to absorb shots questionable to the fans. Against an undefeated counterpart, that can prove to be a recipe for disaster.

Bohm is a very well-rounded fighter and is on a mission to prove herself in the world’s best organization. Also, after losing 2 in a row, Lipski might be a bit cautious coming into the fight. Hence, ‘Monster’ might just exploit that in her favor and outpoint Lipski over 3 rounds.
