“Let me die after you die.” Enraged Kim Ji-yeon (33) vowed to finish the ‘rude’ Mandi Böhm (33, Germany).
Kim Ji-yeon will face Boehm at the undercard of ‘UFC Fight Night: Rosenstruk vs Almeida’ held at the Charlotte Spectrum Center in North Carolina, USA on the 14th (Korean time).
Kim Ji-yeon and Boehm engaged in a fierce battle of nerves in the face-off that followed the flyweight weigh-in with 126 pounds (approximately 51.2 kg) each on the 13th. Kim Ji-yeon rushed at Boehm, who finished the weigh-in first, and Boehm did not lose, but thrust her head into Kim Ji-yeon. UFC President Dana White had to stop in the middle.
The reason why Kim Ji-yeon, who is usually known as a ‘UFC nuclear powerhouse’ with a bright personality, was angry because of Bohn’s rude attitude. The two fighters were originally supposed to fight on February 5th. However, Boehm showed allergy symptoms after weighing in and gave up participating in the game three hours before the competition.
Kim Ji-yeon expected an explanation of the circumstances. However, Böhm suddenly left for Germany. Feeling disrespected by this, Kim Ji-yeon was furious, saying, “You die and I die.” Boehm was angry with Boehm. This is because an angry Kim Ji-yeon posted on social media announcing his rematch success and saying, “Don’t run away.”
Boehm, who had been bedridden for three weeks due to severe allergy symptoms, was angry with Kim Ji-yeon for treating him as a fugitive. The two fighters met at the Performance Institute (PI), a UFC training facility, and had a war of nerves, and PI staff eventually separated the two. Through this incident, Kim Ji-yeon said, “I have been more motivated” and promised “I will prepare harder and send it off.”
The finishing weapon prepared by Kim Ji-yeon this time is boxing. Kim Ji-yeon met with Jorge Capetillo, the coach of WBC heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury (34, England) and UFC flyweight champion Brandon Moreno (29, Mexico), to further refine her specialty, boxing. Kim Ji-yeon revealed the game plan, saying, “I feel scared when I get punched by Bohem.”
Kim Ji-yeon said, “Now that I am on my 4th consecutive loss, I think the fans’ expectations have dropped a lot.” I will do my best until the end so that I can get good results this time.”토토사이트
