Maryna Moroz is turning heads in and out of the Octagon.
The UFC flyweight made history recently by becoming the first UFC fighter to be featured by Playboy. The 11-3 fighter graces that publications new online platform ‘Centerfold.’
Moroz broke the news on Twitter, sharing one of the pictures that was taken.
Moroz tweeted: “Happy to announce that I’ll be the first UFC Fighter on Playboy Centerfold!
“Can’t wait to partner up with such an iconic brand with clothing, activations, and now the platform that has all my exclusive content.”
She has since explained how the move to Playboy has helped change her life and put sole focus back on her MMA career.
“Before, I was a very closed person,” Moroz told TMZ Sports. “Now, America changed me, and now I’m open, and I feel more energy when I show nude pictures. “Playboy is super big for me. It changed everything in my life, and now I am different. I am a different person.”
Moroz, who was born in Vilnohirsk, Ukraine, has been fighting in the Octagon since 2015. She won her UFC debut, versus Joanne Wood, via first round submission.
Since that bout, she has amassed a 6-3 record in the promotion. She is currently on a three fight winning streak with wins over Sabina Mazo, Mayra Bueno Silva and Mariya Agapova.
