Maryna Moroz returns to the cage at this Saturday’s UFC Vegas 65 event when she battles Jennifer Maia.
Moroz (11-3) is currently ranked number-fifteen in the UFC’s flyweight contender rankings and has gone 3-0 since moving up from strawweight. She now faces her biggest test yet and has a major opportunity when she takes on the number-eight ranked former title challenger in Jennifer Maia.
2022 has been quite the year for Moroz, and earlier this year she made history by becoming the first ever UFC fighter to pose for Playboy.
Moroz struck up an exclusive partnership with the men’s lifestyle and entertainment magazine and has posted several teasers from the shoot via her Instagram page. She is just one of many fighters topping up their careers by engaging in part-time modeling work.
‘The Iron Lady’ is proving you can be beautiful yet tough, and this Saturday she looks to claim the top-ten ranking at flyweight and make it 4-0 in the division. Her ultimate goal is to someday challenge UFC flyweight champion, Valentina Shevchenko.
UFC Vegas 65 takes place this Saturday, November 19, 2022, from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The preliminary card, featuring Maryna Moroz, will be aired live on ESPN+ from 1 pm ET.
