RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Moyle will be forced to withdraw from her UFC 220 matchup against Maryna Moroz due to an undisclosed injury, MMAFighting.com reports.
Moyle defeated Kailin Curran in her UFC debut the the TUF 24 finale, but followed that up with a loss to Viviane Pereira last June at UFC 212. The 28-year-old strawweight had been scheduled for the early prelims Saturday, but the late withdrawal will cancel the fight altogether. UFC 220 will move forward with 11 scheduled bouts.

Fantasy AnalysisIt was a poor effort from a young lady who has struggled to find her footing since joining the UFC in December. Moyle built a reputation in Invicta as a tough, competent fighter, and even though she won her company debut against Kailin Curran, she has looked ordinary in both of her fights in the UFC. She was outworked by Pereira in Rounds 2 and 3 after getting off to a solid start. Moyle needs to figure out a way to pick up a victory in her next contest. There is zero room for error in the UFC's women's strawweight division these days.
Fantasy AnalysisMoyle may be nearly five years older than the 23-year-old prospect, but she has just five fights under her belt, while Pereira sports a 12-0 professional record. Both fighters won their UFC debuts, but Moyle was a bit more convincing, scoring a unanimous decision against Kailin Curran. Moyle will also have the crowd against her while going up against a native Brazilian.
Fantasy AnalysisMoyle showed a little bit of everything in her first fight with the company. She landed 114/175 total strikes (66%), she scored three takedowns (although he failed on seven attempts) and she racked up more than a round and a half (7:38) worth of control time. It needs to be pointed out that she was facing an opponent who has struggled defensively over the course of her UFC career, but it was a nice job nonetheless for the debuting Moyle.
