A former UFC champion will look to right the ship later this spring.
Esparza (11-4) is coming off a split decision lost to Randa Markos last month in Halifax. The California native was the first-ever UFC women’s strawweight champion, earning the belt after winning The Ultimate Fighter 20. Esparza, 29, has lost two of three and had injury issues since beating Rose Namajunas for the title.
Moroz (8-1) has not fought since a split decision win over Danielle Taylor last August. The Ukraine native has won three of four in the UFC. Moroz, 25, owns a submission victory over Joanne Calderwood.
