TORONTO — Canadian bantamweight Sarah (Cheesecake) Moras will face Liana Jojua at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi in September.

Moras (5-5-0) has lost her last three fights and four of her last five. The 31-year-old from Kelowna, B.C., is 2-4-0 in the UFC.

Moras has been dogged by injuries during her MMA career, at one point going 785 days without a fight.

Jojua, a 24-year-old from Tbilisi, Georgia, will be making her UFC debut. Jojua (7-2-0) has won five straight, including four first-round stoppages.

The Sept. 7 main event pits lightweight champion Khabib (The Eagle) Nurmagomedov against interim title-holder Dustin (The Diamond) Poirier.

"This is one of the biggest fight cards of the year, and I can not wait to be a part of it!" Moras tweeted.
