An important flyweight fight features on Saturday’s UFC Vegas 65 event when top-fifteen-ranked contenders Jennifer Maia and Maryna Moroz collide.
Maia is currently ranked number eight in the UFC’s flyweight rankings. A former Invicta FC champion who once went five rounds with the UFC champ Valentina Shevchenko, Maia is looking to get back on track following losses to top-two ranked contenders Manon Fiorot and Katlyn Chookagian.
Moroz has gone 3-0 since moving up to the 125-pound division and is currently ranked number fifteen. With a victory on Saturday, Moroz will likely jump into the top ten and be that much closer to a title opportunity.
Ahead of the big fight, WMMA Rankings has teamed up with four members of UFC’s flyweight roster.
These fierce and highly-skilled fighters all have their sights on someday claiming the world title, and that means also eyeing up all the other contenders. This week they make their official pick on who they believe wins the top-fifteen flyweight clash.
UFC Vegas 65 takes place on Saturday, November 19, 2022, from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The preliminary card, featuring Maia vs. Moroz, will be aired live on ESPN+ from 1 pm ET.
