This Saturday’s UFC 242 event in Abu Dhabi features an exciting bantamweight bout on the preliminary card when Liana Jojua makes her promotional debut to take on Sarah Moras.
Jojua (7-2-0) makes her UFC debut after picking up a five-fight win streak in which she won the Fight Nights Bantamweight Title in her last showing back in February 2018. After almost nineteen months away from competition, the 24-year-old looks to make an impact in her promotional debut.
Moras (5-5-0) looks to rebound from a three-fight losing streak after dropping bouts to Lucie Pudilova, Talita Bernardo and Macy Chiasson. The 31-year-old’s last victory came in September 2017, an impressive first-round submission win over Ashlee Evans-Smith.
UFC 242 takes place this Saturday September 7, 2019, from The Arena, Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The preliminary card featuring Jojua vs. Moras will be aired live on ESPN+ from 12pm EST.
