Lookboonmee vs Reed Prediction

Loma Lookboonmee and Elise Reed look to further establish themselves in the strawweight division with a victory this weekend. Lookboonmee has succeeded at picking up victories lately, improving to 3-1 in her last four fights with a unanimous decision win over Denise Gomes in her most recent outing.

After a 4-0 start to her career, Reed has alternated between wins and losses since joining the UFC, going 2-2 thus far. She did beat Melissa Martinez by unanimous decision back in September, so it remains to be seen if Reed capitalizes on that momentum.

At the end of the day, I'm siding with Lookboonmee. On top of her recent success, the 27-year-old also has a recent unanimous decision win over Sam Hughes — an opponent that Reed lost to by TKO at UFC Vegas 55.

Lookboonmee also averages more significant strikes (4.21) with better accuracy (58%) than Reed (2.77 and 51%, respectively). Reed doesn't have the defense to withstand that attack, proven by her 3.57 significant strikes absorbed per minute and the fact that she's been knocked out twice in her career.

Unless she forgets what made her successful to this point, expect another win for Lookboonmee.

Winner: Loma Lookboonmee
