UFC books Montana De La Rosa vs. Maryna Moroz for Sept. 5 event
The UFC has booked another women’s flyweight fight for its upcoming schedule.
Multiple people with knowledge of the situation informed MMA Junkie of the booking but asked to remain anonymous since the promotion has yet to make an official announcement. De La Rosa also confirmed the news on her Instagram.
De La Rosa (11-5 MMA, 4-1 UFC) has won four of her past five outings. After defeating Christina Marks, Rachael Ostovich and Nadia Kassem in succession to kick off her promotional tenure, De La Rosa suffered her fist UFC loss to Andrea Lee in June 2019. In her most recent fight at UFC on ESPN+ 25 in February, De La Rosa got back in the win column by defeating Mara Romero Borella.
Riding a two-fight winning streak, Moroz (10-3 MMA, 5-3 UFC) will be gunning for her third straight victory. In March 2019, Moroz rebounded from back-to-back losses with a unanimous decision win over Sabina Mazo. In her most recent outing at UFC on ESPN+ 28 in March, Moroz defeated Mayra Bueno Silva by unanimous decision.
