Est. Return 6/1/2021
Fight taken off card
March 19, 2021
Stoliarenko will not fight Julia Avila at Saturday's UFC Fight Night after she fainted twice during her weigh-in, Mike Heck of MMAFighting.com reports.
Stoliarenko got up on the scale for her weigh-in ahead of her scheduled fight against Avila on Saturday but ended up collapsing as she fainted. She sat down on a chair for a few minutes, got back up and made weight, but then fainted again and was taken away on a stretcher. As a result, her fight against Avila had to be taken off the card and hopefully she can step into the Octagon later this year.

Looking for first UFC win
January 5, 2021
Stoliarenko will take on Julia Avila in a bantamweight matchup scheduled for March 20, MMAFighting.com reports.
The fighters have very little UFC experience between them, stepping into the Octagon a combined four times. Just one of those fights has been Stoliarenko's, a unanimous decision defeat against Yana Kunitskaya in August. Avila picked up a pair of wins to start her time with the promotion before falling to Sijara Eubanks by unanimous decision in September.
Low output in loss
August 9, 2020
Stoliarenko lost to Yana Kinitskaya via unanimous decision (26-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC on ESPN+ 32 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
It's not often a fighter goes a full 15 minutes and manages just six significant strikes, but that's exactly what happened here. Kunitskaya had 43 significant strikes in comparison, and won the battle of total strikes 209-to-30. Stoliarenko was simply overpowered in the clinch for much of this fight, and while she did threaten with an armbar late in the second round, the fight was otherwise all Kunitskaya. The 27-year-old falls to 9-4-2 as a professional, and isn't really a major factor in the bantamweight division.
Stepping in for Vieira
July 30, 2020
Stoliarenko will face Yana Kunitskaya at the UFC event on August 8, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA.nl reports.
Stoliarenko gets this fight after Ketlen Vieira was forced to withdraw for undisclosed reasons. It will be her first bout with the promotion since 2018.
Doesn't do enough in UFC debut
November 30, 2018
Stoliarenko lost to Leah Letson via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 28-29) at The Ultimate Fighter 28 Finale in Las Vegas on Friday.
Stoliarenko didn't seem to have much of a gameplan for this one, choosing to stand with the far superior striker for much of the bout, which resulted in the Lithuanian missing badly from range and eating hard shots. It wasn't all bad news for Stoliarenko, as she landed a nice elbow and tried to finish the fight with a guillotine in the final round but she never had her opponent in any kind of danger. Stoliarenko made waves on The Ultimate Fighter due to her incredible comeback victory against Marcia Allen but she will need to improve on the feet before she can be considered a legitimate prospect. She falls to 4-3-2 in professional MMA as a result of the loss.
