Sarah Moras


Falls as rare favorite
January 16, 2021
Moras lost to Vanessa Melo via unanimous decision (27-30, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC on ABC 1 on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
It was an underwhelming effort from Moras in a fight in which she somehow entered as a -180 favorite. Saturday's fight highlighted Moras' biggest issue. Her defense is no better than average, but her inability to generate any significant offense has long been her ultimate downfall. She looked better in Round 3, but the damage was already done over the first ten minutes. An alum of Season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter, Moras has fought for only the UFC since her company debut back in July 2014. It's difficult to believe considering Saturday's setback leaves her with a 3-6 record with the the company. It will be interesting to see if the UFC gives her another opportunity.

Injury moves fight to January
November 4, 2020
Moras' scheduled bantamweight matchup against Vanessa Melo has been moved to the UFC event scheduled for Jan. 16, Raphael Marinho of reports.
Moras has apparently suffered an unspecified injury, so she'll no longer be taking the cage for a fight originally scheduled for UFC Vegas 13 on Saturday. Despite dropping four of her last five fights in the UFC, she was set to enter this matchup as approximately a (-185) betting favorite. She would have claimed a two-inch height and reach advantages against Melo, who is 0-3 under the UFC banner. While Moras has averaged a brutally-low 2.18 significant strikes per minute during her eight-fight UFC run, Melo has absorbed an incredibly high 7.20 significant strikes per minute, so something will have to give when the two eventually face off in 2021.

Not competitive once again
May 13, 2020
Moras lost to Sijara Eubanks via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 26-30) at UFC Fight Night on Wednesday in Jacksonville.
It's exceedingly rare to see a UFC fighter with a career record below .500, but that's where Moras (6-7) stands as we approach the midpoint of 2020. As has been the case more often than not during her time with the company, Moras wasn't the least bit competitive. She allowed Eubanks to beat her up on the feet in the early going before doing some damage on the mat late. Moras somehow defeated Julianna Pena back in their Invicta days but it has been a massive struggle since. She is 1-4 in her last five fights dating back to February 2018.
