Wins second in a row
FlyweightUFC
March 14, 2020
Moroz defeated Mayra Bueno Silva via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Brasilia, Brazil.
ANALYSIS
It was a typical Moroz effort in the sense that the fight was thoroughly mediocre but she somehow managed to walk away with a win. Facing an opponent who hadn't fought in about a year and half, Moroz simply overwhelmed Silva with volume. She attempted (298-150) and landed (176-92) nearly twice as many total strikes as the Brazilian. Moroz is halfway decent on the feet from a technical standpoint and has five career wins via submission but her ceiling is non-existent due to a distinct lack of power in her hands. Moroz is riding a two-fight win streak and sporting a 5-3 record with the UFC. Her last four wins have all come via decision.
Making return at UFC Brasilia
FlyweightUFC
December 5, 2019
Moroz (elbow) will take on Mayra Bueno Silva in a flyweight matchup at UFC Brasilia on March 14, Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Moroz's last fight came at UFC Philadelphia in March of 2019 when she defeated Sabina Mazo via unanimous decision after suffering back-to-back losses. The 28-year-old was then forced to withdraw from a scheduled fight at UFC 241 due to an elbow injury that left her unable to train or spar with her upper body. She'll take on Bueno Silva, who won her UFC debut against Gillian Robertson via submission (armbar) at UFC Sao Paulo in September of 2018 to bring her professional record to 5-0. She suffered a knee injury following the fight and hasn't fought since. Moroz carries a slight height advantage heading into the matchup.
Looking at 2020 return
FlyweightUFC
December 3, 2019
Moroz (elbow) is targeting an early-2020 return, Danny Segura of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Moroz was unable to train or spar with her upper body due to an elbow issue that limited feeling all the way down to her fingers, but she's apparently feeling much better and wants to return in 2020. She'll continue to compete in the flyweight division for the foreseeable future, as opposed to making the very difficult cut to 115 pounds.
Withdraws from UFC 241
FlyweightUFC
July 31, 2019
Moroz, due to an elbow injury, has withdrawn from her fight against Poliana Botelho during UFC 241 on Aug. 17 in Anaheim, California, Guilherme Cruz and Alexander K. Lee of MMAFighting.com report.
ANALYSIS
Moroz took a kick to the elbow, inflaming her ulna nerve. UFC 241 was going to mark Moroz's second UFC bout. She emerged victorious from her debut against Sabina Mazo. Poliana Botelho will need to find a new opponent for Aug. 17.
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.
