Ukrainian Maryna Moroz became the first UFC Fighter to be featured on the Playboy Centerfold this past week. The news was revealed by Moroz on Twitter and she also shared the picture which was taken during the association with the magazine.

Hailing from Ukraine, Moroz holds a professional MMA record of 11-3 to her name and is currently on a three-fight winning streak in the UFC. She last fought at UFC 272 where she had secured a submission win over Mariya Agapova.

Prior to that, she had secured wins over Mayra Bueno Silva and Sabina Mazo. Moroz started her MMA career back in 2013 and made her professional debut at Oplot Challenge 89. She went on to build a six-fight winning streak and made her UFC debut in 2015 against Joanne Wood with a win.

Moroz, however, suffered a loss in her second UFC outing when she was edged out by Valerie Letourneau at UFC Fight Night 74. The Ukrainian then came back strongly to secure two more wins before suffering two losses against current Champion Carla Esparza and veteran Angela Hill respectively.
