Maryna Moroz is a Ukrainian mixed martial artist who competes in the flyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). She began her career as an amateur in 2012 and competed for four years before turning professional. She made her professional debut in 2016 and quickly rose to success, amassing a record of 8-1 at the time she signed with the UFC in 2015.
Moroz was born on April 11, 1992, in Uzhgorod, Ukraine. When she was fifteen years old, she began training Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Cezar Gracie Academy instructors Sergei Bugaevskyi and Andriy Fedoryshyn. During this time period, Moroz also trained judo and wrestling at local schools.
In 2012, Moroz earned her brown belt in jiu-jitsu while competing as an amateur mixed martial artist. After winning three fights by submission within five months of each other that year – all inside one round – Moroz announced that she wanted to pursue a career as a professional fighter and signed with Invicta FC shortly thereafter.
As a pro fighter with Invicta FC from 2014 to 2015, Maryna went undefeated with 7 wins out of 7 attempts including 3 TKO/KO victories along with 4 submissions wins via arm bar or rear naked choke holds over some tough opponents such as Joanne Calderwood who later fought for UFC Straw weight title against former champion Carla Esparza . In June 2015 Maryna debuted into UFC where she faced off against fellow competitor Joanne Calderwood losing via unanimous decision ending her undefeated streak but not letting go off her dreams of becoming successful MMA athlete which eventually came true once when two years later ,at October 2017 fight event ,she defeated Karolina Kowalkiewicz giving herself another win on 4th straight try thus establishing herself even more amongst top elite femaleflyweights fighters around globe .
