For many years now, Mariya Agapova has been seen as someone who has real potential to go far in the women’s flyweight division. However, as time has gone on, she’s experienced a parade of setbacks in her attempt to become a title contender.

She last fought in 2022, losing via submission to Gillian Robertson, dropping her to three defeats in her last four bouts.

Since then, we haven’t seen her inside the Octagon. As per Agapova in a since-deleted Instagram post, she’s pretty frustrated with how things are playing out.

Agapova’s fury

“I have two more fights under my contract in the UFC,” Agapova said. “Because of the contract, I can’t fight in other places and promotions to make money. I also train two-three times a day, because of this, I am not able to get a job. Thank you very much to my friends, sponsors, and tattoo clients for their help. But I urgently need a contract for the fight. My documents have been in order for a month now, and it’s still not clear when I’ll sign the contract for the fight. Let’s make some noise. Write to the UFC that you miss my fights.

“When is the fight?” she concluded. “Don’t ask me that! Let’s ask the UFC [Matchmaker] Mick Maynard. WHEN WILL MY FIGHT BE HAPPENING???”

At the age of 26, thankfully, she has a long road ahead of her in mixed martial arts – but this is bound to still be pretty frustrating.
