This Sunday’s UFC Fight Night 126 event is set to feature an exciting bantamweight showdown on the preliminary card when Sarah “Cheesecake” Moras takes on Lucie Pudilova.
Moras (5-2) looks to build on her first-round submission win over Ashlee Evans-Smith at this past September’s UFC 215 event. She is currently ranked at number-thirteen in the UFC’s media rankings and at eight in the WMMA World Rankings. The 29-year-old Canadian hopes to build a solid win streak this year and eventually position herself for a shot at the UFC bantamweight world title. She owns notable professional career victories over Alexis Dufresne and Julianna Pena.
Pudilova (7-2) has gone 1-1 since signing with the UFC, losing a decision to Lina Lansberg but then winning a decision over Ji Yeon Kim. The 23-year-old prospect from Czech Republic hopes a victory this weekend over one of the division’s elite competitors will insert her into the rankings.
UFC Fight Night 126 takes place this Sunday February 18 from the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, United States. The preliminary card featuring Moras vs. Pudilova will be aired live on Fox Sports 1 from 7pm EST.
