UFC 216 gets Ashlee Evans-Smith vs Sarah Moras

Later this year at UFC 216, Sarah Moras (4-2) will return to the octagon for the first time since 2015 to take on Ashlee-Evans Smith (5-2).Sarah “Cheesecake” Moras last fought in July of 2015, losing a unanimous to Jessica Andrade at bantamweight. Prior to that Moras defeated Alexis Dufresne via unanimous decision in her UFC debut. She competed on Team Tate on season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter but was eliminated in the semi-finals by eventual season winner Juliana Pena.

Ashlee Evans-Smith made her UFC debut on short notice against Racquel Pennington. Despite losing the fight at the very last second of the first round by submission, Evans-Smith showed a lot of promise. She followed that performance with back-to-back UFC wins– a split decision over Marion Reneau 3and a TKO of Veronica Macedo. Evans-Smith last fought in April of this year,  losing a hard-fought unanimous decision to Ketlen Vieira.

Moras will look to make a triumphant return in attempt to snag Evans-Smith’s place in the top fifteen.

UFC 216 takes place in Edmonton, Canada on September 9th.
