Originally, the two were scheduled to fight on February 5th. However, Böhm showed allergic symptoms after the weigh-in at the time, and she gave up competing three hours before the competition. Feeling disrespected by her counterpart, who left for Germany without explanation, Kim Ji-yeon was enraged, saying, “You die and I die.”
In the match that was held again, Kim Ji-yeon showed off her skills one level higher. She dominated the first round with her powerful striking skills. Kim Ji-yeon, who was also doing well in the second round, committed a foul for not suppressing her emotions.

The referee judged that Kim Ji-yeon intentionally attacked her opponent and declared a 1-point deduction for her before entering the third round. Since he played well in the previous two rounds, it seemed that the deduction would not affect the outcome.
However, another foul occurred in the third round. While Boehm was resting one hand on the floor, Kim Ji-yeon hit her face with a knee kick. The UFC considers a “ground situation” when one hand is on the floor. At this time, kicking a kick or knee kick toward the opponent’s head is a foul.
Böhm was shocked by Kim Ji-yeon’s knee and expressed his intention that he could no longer play. He immediately sat down in the octagon and the match was stopped. The crowd booed Böhm, judging that he was acting to get a foul win.
At the end of the meeting, the judges judged that Kim Ji-yeon’s knee kick was not intentional. Instead of a disqualification, it was decided to make a ‘technical judgment’ that was scored based on the content of the match until 1 minute 55 seconds of the 3rd round when the game stopped. Instead, another deduction of 1 point was declared for Kim Ji-yeon, who fouled in the third round.
The three judges scored 9-9 in both the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Had it not been for the 2-point deduction, Kim Ji-yeon would have won by taking two rounds 10-9. In the end, two fouls ended up kicking the victory.
Kim Ji-yeon fell into a swamp of 5 consecutive UFC losses, including a decision loss against Alexa Grasso in 2020. In the UFC, he fought a total of 10 times and has a record of 3 wins and 7 losses. This fight was important for my comeback, but now I can’t guarantee my future in the UFC.
