Maryna has a 11-3 record, with the vast majority of her wins coming via submission – Armbars, for the most part.
She made her UFC debut as a strawweight at UFC Fight Night 64, back in April 2015. She fought against Joanne Wood, submitting her in the first round. Then, she went on to a 3-3 record, as she lost to Valérie Létourneau, Carla Esparza, and Angela Hill – all by decision.
Moroz then dropped to the flyweight division in 2019, immediately amassing a three fight winning streak. Known as a hard worker, Maryna takes pride in her work ethic and the amount of effort put into training:
