Moras appeared in the semi-finals fight for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18, where she fought, fellow Team Tate member, Julianna Pena. A lot of MMA fans had hoped for Moras to win but she probably was just not lucky enough.
The match between Moras and Pena in TUF 18 was actually a rematch. The duo faced each other in April 2012, where Moras triumphed by doctor's stoppage technical knockout only after just a couple of rounds. Moras received a lot of praise after her arm bar attack over Pena.

"I donated one of my sports bra (signed) and pic from #TUF18 for the silent auction check it out Jan 18 Westbank," she wrote along with a link to an article featuring the kid's cancer battle.
