Moroz submitted Mariya Agapova via arm-triangle choke at UFC 272 last March 5, 2022, in a Performance of the Night-winning effort. The win settled the feud between the former American Top Team teammates. It was also Moroz’s third straight since suffering back-to-back losses to Carla Esparza and Angela Hill.
The 30-year-old from Ukraine began her career at Oplot Challenge and Kunlun Fight. She also appeared in the XCFI women’s strawweight tournament before she was signed by the UFC in 2015. Agapova opened her UFC career with a 3-3 record before her current winning run. She has a record of 11-3 with one knockout and six submission victories.
This will be the first time in four bouts where Moroz will have the minus money sign placed next to her name. The Ukrainian fighter was the betting underdog in her previous three bouts but won all of them, including as a +155 bottom dog against Agapova in her most recent bout.
