UFC Vegas 68 loses Mandy Bohm vs. Ji Yeon Kim just hours before the event


UFC Vegas 68 has lost a fight just hours before the card is set to begin.

According to UFC officials Mandy Bohm, flyweight, has had to withdraw from Saturday’s fight due to illness. Her matchup with Ji Yeon Kim was canceled, and she will now be fighting at UFC APEX Las Vegas.

Bohm vs. Kim was originally scheduled as part of the preliminary card, which has a later start time than usual with the fights kicking off at 10 p.m. ET followed by the main card at 1 a.m. ET.

Bohm is currently 0-2 in her UFC campaign with back-to-back losses to Victoria Leonardo and Ariane Lipski.

Meanwhile, Kim was seeking her first win after a four-fight losing streak dating back to 2020 after falling to Alexa Grasso, Molly McCann, Priscila Cachoeira and Joselyne Edwards in consecutive bouts.

Overall, Kim sports a 3-6 resume in her UFC career but now she’ll have to wait until a later date to attempt to end her losing skid.

UFC Vegas 68 is moving forward with an 11-fightcard with a 5-fight main card and capped off with a heavyweight match between Derrick Lewis and Serghei SPivac.
