Moroz used her experience to keep her poise through Stanciu’s general aggressiveness and took the fight to the ground to control her opponent for long stretches.
Stanciu reminded me of a younger Moroz and I’m sure with more UFC fights under her belt, she will make noise in the division. I was impressed with her performance, considering it was her octagon debut.
A big congrats to Andy Nguyen (2-2-0), who won the King of the Cage women’s atomweight title over Elaine Santiago April 9th.

I love it! There will be an Asian women’s atom weight champion crowned for the first time at ONE FC.
Progress is good.
And now for something completely different:

Lionfight Promotions Muay Thai champion Tiffany Van Soest recently joined the strawweight division and GLORY’s kickboxing roster as well. “I am beyond thrilled to have this incredible opportunity,” said the 27-year-old Van Soest in an Invicta FC press release. “Striking has always been my passion and my official MMA debut has been greatly anticipated. I could not be happier.”

Van Soest has a defeat in her only MMA contest, but I can’t wait to see what she brings to Invicta’s strawweight division and GLORY.
To the UFC straw weights: What are you doing now? Look at the champion:
