After Jamie Moyle Injury Nixes UFC 220 Bout, Maryna Moroz Now Faces Angela Hill at UFC on Fox 28
Moroz may have had her UFC
220 bout canceled, but she won’t need to wait long to get back
into the Octagon.
UFC on Fox 28 will now feature a strawweight contest between
Moroz and former Invicta Fighting Championships titleholder
Hill. The Orlando Sentinel was
first to report the pairing on Monday.
UFC on Fox 28, headlined by a featherweight contest between
Emmett and Jeremy
Stephens, is scheduled for Feb. 24 at the Amway Center in
The 26-year-old Moroz has gone 3-2 in her Octagon tenure, debuting
with a 90-second armbar upset of Joanne
Calderwood in April 2015. After dropping a unanimous decision
Letourneau, she rebounded by taking verdicts over Cristina
Stanciu and Danielle
Taylor. In her last Octagon appearance, she was outwrestled by
former UFC champ Carla
Esparza and dropped another judges’ nod.
“The Iron Lady” was scheduled to face American Jamie Moyle
at UFC 220 in Boston this past Saturday, but Moyle suffered an
undisclosed injury, canceling the bout during fight week.
After a 4-0 run in Invicta and becoming the promotion’s 115-pound
champ, Hill returned to the UFC last February, dropping a decision
in a memorable brawl with Jessica
Andrade. “Angie Overkill” earned her first UFC win in July
Yoder, but her roll was slowed at UFC Fight Night 120 in
November, when she suffered a minor upset loss to Nina
Ansaroff over 15 minutes.
