Maryna Moroz hit another milestone in her modeling career. The 31-year-old made history by becoming the first UFC athlete to feature in Playboy. Moroz happily shared the news on her social media. She also uploaded a picture that seemed very revealing.
Moroz opened up about the experience posing for Playboy telling TMZ:
“Before, I was a very closed person,” Moroz said. “Now, America changed me, and now I’m open, and I feel more energy when I show nude pictures.”
“My life is like train, my pictures, rest, food, and that’s it,” Moroz said. “Super big fight for me, and I’m ready for it because I work hard and focus is always in training. I love my job!”
She recently shared a snippet from the shoot on social media.
Moroz last competed against Jennifer Maia in November of 2022 and lost a unanimous decision. Prior to that she scored victories over Mariya Agapova, Mayra Bueno Silva and Savina Mazo.
Her MMA record consists of 11 wins and 4 losses. She’s been in the UFC since 2015. She’s 31 years old and trains out of American Top Team. Currently she’s recovering from a war against Maia and will likely return in the first half of 2023.
“My family is in Ukraine,” she said whilst being interviewed in the octagon back in March, “I had a hard week. I worried, I cried, because my family is right now in a bad situation.”
“Thank you to everyone who messaged me, supported me, because this week was hard for me. I wanted to cry because of this war my country is in.”
“I have a lot of pressure. All this week I feel nervous, I cried. I tried to focus. Many people don’t know, but it was really hard for me. I see in Ukraine how terrible the situation is. It was really my heart almost crying. But I did it. I focused and I did fight.”
