Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Moras made her professional MMA debut in May 2010. Before appearing on The Ultimate Fighter, she amassed a record of three wins and one loss in the first two years of her career.

The Ultimate Fighter[edit]

In August 2013, it was announced that Moras was selected as a participant on The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rousey vs. Team Tate, the first coed version of the show.[7] In the elimination bout, Moras defeated Tara LaRosa after 2 rounds via decision to get into the TUF house. She then went on to defeat Peggy Morgan via submission in the first round to get into the semifinals. Sarah banked a 25K bonus for the TUF 18 Submission of the Season. In the semifinals, Moras lost to eventual winner Julianna Peña by submission in the second round.

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Moras made her official UFC debut against Alexis Dufresne on July 6, 2014 at The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale. She won the fight via unanimous decision.

After a year away from the sport, Moras returned to face Jéssica Andrade at UFC Fight Night 71.[8] She lost the fight by unanimous decision after almost submitting Andrade to a Hail Mary rear naked choke in the last minute of the last round.[9]

Moras faced Ashlee Evans-Smith on September 9, 2017 at UFC 215.[10] She won the fight via armbar submission, dislocating Evans-Smith's elbow in the first round.[11][12]

Moras faced Lucie Pudilová on February 18, 2018 at UFC Fight Night: Cowboy vs. Medeiros.[13] She lost the fight by unanimous decision.[14]

Moras faced Talita Bernardo on October 27, 2018 at UFC Fight Night 138.[15] She lost the fight via unanimous decision.[16]

Moras was scheduled to face Leah Letson on May 4, 2019 at UFC Fight Night 151.[17] However, Letson was removed from the fight in early April for an unspecified medical issue and replaced by Macy Chiasson.[18] Moras lost the fight via TKO in the second round.[19]

Moras faced Liana Jojua on September 7, 2019 at UFC 242.[20] At the weigh-ins, Moras weighed in at 138 lbs, 2 pounds over the lightweight non-title fight limit of 136 lbs. She was fined 20% of her fight purse to Jojua, and the bout proceeded at catchweight.[21] She won the fight via TKO in the third round.[22]
