Ukrainian prospect Maryna “The Iron Woman” Moroz rebounded from the first loss of her pro career with a hard-fought victory tonight at UFC Fight Night 86: “Rothwell vs dos Santos” in Zagreb, Croatia. Moroz outpointed Cristina “Barbie” Stanciu in a back-and-forth strawweight bout on the card.
Moroz found herself in early danger when Stanciu threatened with a series of submission attempts in the opening round, but Moroz stayed calm and Stanciu, a former flyweight, slowed down in the final ten minutes. The bout went to the scorecards and Moroz took home a Unanimous Decision win.
