Maryna Moroz
Iron Lady
Added to UFC Anaheim card
FlyweightUFC
June 12, 2019
Moroz will square off against Poliana Botehlo at UFC Anaheim, Marelo Barone of GloboEsporte.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Moroz specializes in taking opponents to the mat, owning five submissions in her nine professional victories. She has only earned of her three UFC victories (her debut) by submission, with all five of Moroz's other fights ending in a decision. The 5-foot-7 fighter gives up an inch of height to Botehlo but owns the same reach. She owns just 0.33 takedowns per 15 minutes, but it's not for a lack of trying. Moroz sports just a 14 takedown accuracy percentage and it may not get any easier versus Botehlo, who has successfully fended off 88 percent of takedowns attempted on her.

Snaps losing streak with strong effort
FlyweightUFC
March 30, 2019
Moroz defeated Sabina Mazo via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC on ESPN 2 on Saturday in Philadelphia.
ANALYSIS
It was easily the best performance of Moroz's brief UFC tenure. Coming off back-to-back losses and quite possibly fighting for her job, Moroz did just enough to keep Mazo off balance on the feet and although she landed just one of nine takedown attempts, her aggressiveness kept the debuting Mazo from doing any real damage of her own. Moroz is back over the .500 mark (4-3) over the course of her first seven UFC bouts.

Moroz will now face UFC newcomer Ariane Lipski in a flyweight matchup at UFC Argentina on Nov. 17, Combate reports.
ANALYSIS
Moroz was originally scheduled to take on Veronica Macedo, but Macedo was forced to withdraw due to injury. Stepping up to replace her is the debuting Lipski, a Brazilian with a professional record of 11-3 (six knockouts, two submissions). While one would think Moroz might have an edge due to her UFC experience, Lipski is a former champion under the KSW banner that defended her flyweight title on multiple occasions.
Booked for flyweight fight in Argentina
FlyweightUFC
September 13, 2018
Moroz will fight Veronica Macedo in a flyweight bout at UFC Argentina on Nov. 17.
ANALYSIS
Moroz will definitely have the experience edge in Argentina, as her opponent, Macedo, is only 22 years old and only has two UFC fights under her belt since 2016 (both of which were losses). Moroz, however, is on a bit of slide herself having dropped each of her last two fights via unanimous decision. Most recently, she fell to Angela Hill at UFC on FOX 28 back in February. Moroz still boasts a 3-3 record in the UFC and an 8-3 fighting record overall.
