A women’s flyweight bout went through a change ahead of UFC Fight Night 191. Originally scheduled to take on newcomer Mandy Bohm at the September 4 event, Taila Santos was forced to leave the card due to visa issues. However, her fellow Brazilian Ariane Lipski already stepped in to replace her, according to Bohm’s own Instagram.
In dire need of a win, Lipski (13-7) will try to snap a two-fight skid, with TKO losses to both Montana De La Rosa and Antonina Shevchenko in her last couple of outings. Before that, the 27-year-old was on a two-fight winning streak, with victories over Isabela de Padua and Luana Carolina.
Still undefeated, Germany’s Bohm (7-0-1 NC) approaches her Octagon debut on a seven-fight winning streak, with two KO’s, two submissions and three decisions. A member of SBG Ireland, the 32-year-old scored a unanimous decision win over Grieet Eckhout, back in October 2020, at Bellator 247.
Now, Lipski is expected to take on Bohm at UFC Vegas 36, on September 4. The card was originally set to take place in London, but has been moved to the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. A middleweight bout between contenders Derek Brunson and Darren Till is set to headline the card.
