Mandy Bohm Suffers Illness, UFC Fight Night 218 Bout vs. Ji Yeon Kim Canceled
With just a few hours left before the event, UFC Fight Night 218 is down to 11 bouts.
The Las Vegas-based promotion announced on Saturday that Mandy Bohm has been forced to withdraw from a proposed flyweight clash against Ji Yeon Kim due to illness. As a result, the contest has been removed from the card.
UFC Fight Night 218 takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and is headlined by a heavyweight tilt pitting Derrick Lewis against Sergey Spivak. Bohm vs. Kim was slated for the preliminary portion of the card.
Germany’s Bohm is 0-2 in the Octagon, with decision losses to Ariane Lipski and Victoria Leonardo in her first two promotional appearances. The 33-year-old known as “Monster” was unbeaten in eight professional outings before signing with the UFC.
Kim, meanwhile, was looking to halt a four-bout skid in UFC competition. Most recently, the South Korean dropped a split verdict to Joselyne Edwards at UFC 277 this past July.
