The Canadian content continues to increase at Moncton’s UFC Fight Night 138 as the UFC confirmed Kelowna’s No. 14 women’s bantamweight Sarah Moras (5-3-0) will take on Brazilian Talita Bernardo (5-3-0).
“Cheesecake,” 30, has lost two of her last three bouts but many fans still remember her thrilling armbar submission win over Ashlee Evans-Smith at UFC 215 last September.
Throw back to my very first fight almost 11 years ago! Didnt even have weigh-ins because it was "amateur" and we "looked close to the same weight" #lookhowfarwevecome #backintheday… https://t.co/aRMypDRUps
