Sabina Mazo set to make her UFC debut against Maryna Moroz at UFC Philadelphia

LFA women’s flyweight champion Sabina Mazo will make her UFC debut against Maryna Moroz at UFC on ESPN 2.

The second event to be broadcast on ESPN will get another marquee women’s matchup. On a card that already features Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Michelle Waterson and Alexa Grasso, top prospect and LFA flyweight champion Sabina ‘Colombian Queen’ Mazo will make her much awaited octagon debut against veteran Maryna ‘Iron Woman’ Moroz.

Since being signed by the UFC in early December, fans have been waiting for undefeated prospect Sabina Mazo to be booked to fight. Putting together a 6-0 record, including four in LFA where she captured the flyweight title, Mazo was put on the map after two back-to-back head kick knockouts in 2017.

11-fight veteran Maryna Moroz hasn’t had a win since August of 2016. After starting her UFC career with a 3-1 record, including wins over Joanne Calderwood, Cristina Stanciu and Danielle TaylorMoroz has dropped two in a row to former strawweight champ Carla Esparza and former Invicta FC champ Angela Hill.

This will be Mazo’s biggest test yet in her young MMA career and Moroz will be searching for her first win in almost three years. This striker-versus-striker matchup will be a fun one to watch and to see if Mazo has what it takes to hang in a surging flyweight division.

UFC Fight Night: Barboza Vs. Gaethje will on air live on ESPN Saturday, March 30th from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Report: UFC signs undefeated LFA flyweight champ Sabina Mazo

The UFC have picked up one of the hottest up-and-coming prospects in women’s MMA. Sabina ‘The Colombian Queen’ Mazo has signed with the UFC, per ESPN.

Flyweight Sabina Mazo is an undefeated (6-0) prospect out of Kings MMA who went professional in 2015. Mazo made some noise after signing with Legacy Fighting Alliance and scoring head kick knockouts in her first two fights with the organization; which awarded her a flyweight title shot after the belt was vacated by Andrea Lee. Mazo won the belt against Shannon Sinn at LFA 37 in April and then defended it just last month against Carol Yariwaki. Mazo is the first Colombian fighter to sign with the UFC and hopes to make her debut in late March/early April of 2019.
