The Wiseman Report – Moroz ekes out split-decision win over Taylor at UFC Fight Night 92

It’s a UFC record strawweight Maryna Moroz would rather soon forget.

At UFC Fight Night 92 yesterday in Salt Lake City, Utah Moroz connected on only 17 of 251 strike attempts against late replacement Danielle Taylor in winning a split-decision.

That works out to a 6% striking percentage, according to

Taylor wasn’t terribly accurate either, landing 17 of 102 strikes for a 16% hit rate. Needless to say, the fight wasn’t a barnburner.

To be fair, each fighter did what they had to do to be successful. Moroz kept the distance in her favour, while Taylor tried to use footwork to slip inside and land the big right hand.

Not every fight can be a slobberknocker and I think we can all agree, without being insulting, that it was not.

Now that UFC Salt Lake City is in the books, the attention now turns to the last big card of the summer: UFC 202.

There are a pair of WMMA fights on the card: Windsor’s Randa Markos (6-3-0) takes on American Cortney Casey (5-3-0) while Raquel Pennington (7-5-0) challenges Elizabeth Phillips (5-3-0).

Looking over all of their records, I noticed Phillips hasn’t fought in over a year when she defeated Jessamyn Duke. More thoughts on these fights in my UFC 202 predictions during Fight Week.

There’s a nice interview by Pro MMA Now’s Paarth Pande with up-and-coming Indian flyweight Manjit Kolekar (9-0-0).

Kolekar will be making her debut at Invicta FC 19. She will have an entire nation in her corner, no doubt.

The 2016 Rio Olympic Games are now underway and our boxing columnist Noel Clubb has a nifty look at the Canadian Olympic boxing team. Mandy Bujold and Ariane Fortin are two female boxers going for gold. Let’s not forget the lone male competition Arthur Biyarslanov. Go Canada!
