They call her 'The Violence Queen'

Ariane Lipski

If you’ve never seen Ariane Lipski fight, you’re in for a treat.

They call Ariane Lipski ‘the Violence Queen’. The former KSW women’s flyweight champion has more than earned that moniker.

Lipski has an impressive record of 11-3. What’s more impressive is the 24-year-old’s finish rate of 72%. She has six knockouts and two submission victories to her name. As you might have guessed, these finishes tend to be extremely violent by nature.

Irish fans may remember her dazzling display at KSW’s Dublin debut in October 2017. She required just 58 seconds to submit her compatriot Mariana Morais in the 3Arena.

As her record suggests, she also has dynamite in her hands.

She is a genuine knockout artist. At least, on the regional scene.

In all honesty, she is a one-woman highlight-reel.

I mean… come on!

Making the big leagues and MMAJunkie are reporting that Lipski has signed for the UFC after turning down a contract renewal with the Polish promotion. She is set to make her debut against Maryna Moroz on the UFC’s Argentina debut in November.

Lipski enters into the bout on a nine-fight win streak. She went five rounds in her most recent contest, a successful defence of the KSW 125 lb strap against Silvana Gomez Juarez. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s Moroz (8-3, 3-3 UFC) is on a two-fight skid. She lost her last two fights at strawweight to former UFC champion Carla Esparza and former Invicta queen Angela Hill.

UFC Fight Night 140 at Parque Roca Arena in Buenos Aires on November 17.
