Moroz talks about working as a model alongside her MMA career
In a recent interview with Low Kick MMA’s Mike Owens, Maryna Moroz talked about working as a model alongside being a professional mixed martial artist.
“I love my pictures, to look se*y outside the gym, to be like a se*y woman,” Moroz said. “Light makeup, beautiful dress, a bikini, I like to show my body because people get aggressive with why I show my a** or b**bs. I like it, I like to show it, I enjoy when people write me good messages. Sometimes, people write aggressive, bad messages but I love taking emotions when people say, ‘oh I like this picture, Marina. You’re so beautiful, sexy.’ I start slowly and slowly and I love this so much. It’s my hobby.
“People are usually like oh you didn’t go to the gym, but I train everyday. They rest I always go run or something, do exercise, yoga and when I have free time, I make pictures, going to pool, going to beach. People think I make pictures every day but when I have free time, I take a lot of pictures.”
Maryna Moroz hinted at the news of getting signed by Playboy before making the official announcement.
“I have some new news, it will be surprise for my fans. I can’t tell right now but soon we’ll announce on my Instagram, maybe this week or next week. We start posting something super cool.
