One of the world’s top female flyweights will make her UFC debut in November.
According to a report from Combate, KSW flyweight queen Ariane Lipski will replace the injured Veronica Macedo and face Maryna Moroz at UFC Fight Night 140 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on Nov. 17. Multiple outlets have since confirmed the booking. Lipski herself announced that she was released from her KSW contract but did not offer any further details on her next move.
“As many already know, our contract with KSW has not been renewed,” Lipski wrote on Instagram. “I understand that it is sad news for some fans of Poland, but I want you to know that I will always represent Brazil and Poland; it is in my blood and it is my second home.”
“The Violence Queen” will enter her promotional debut on a nine-bout winning streak. Most recently, she took a five-round verdict over Silvana Gomez Juarez at KSW 42 on March 3. Prior to that, the 24-year-old Curitiba native had finished six opponents in a row by way of knockout, technical knockout or submission.
Moroz, meanwhile, is coming off back-to-back losses to Angela Hill and Carla Esparza in the Octagon. “The Iron Lady” will be making her 125-pound debut after compiling a 3-3 mark in the UFC at strawweight. The 27-year-old Moroz is 8-3 as a professional overall.
