Sarah Moras has revealed that she struggles to make it down to 135-pounds and would ideally like to move up to the featherweight division after this Sunday’s UFC Fight Night 126 event.
Moras (5-2) is amongst the best fighters in the world at 135-pounds, currently ranked at number-thirteen in the UFC’s media rankings and number-eight in the WMMA world rankings. The 29-year-old is scheduled to take on Lucie Pudilova this Sunday and looks to put herself on a two-fight win streak after submitting Ashlee Evans-Smith in the first round this past September.
The “Cheesecake” revealed during a recent interview with Fightful MMA’s James Lynch that she would like to move up to 145-pounds if the UFC decide to finally build the division.
“It’s always a bit of a struggle. I really want to move up a weight class. It seems they are really not trying to build that division. It’d be nice if they started to,” said Moras. “I feel like the more I work out, the more muscle I get, the harder it is to make weight because I’m bigger. Leaner but weight the same or more. So, it’s always a struggle for me,” she continued.
UFC Fight Night 126 takes place this Sunday February 18 from the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, United States. The preliminary card featuring Pudilova vs. Moras will be aired live on Fox Sports 1 from 6pm EST.
