Monster Energy’s Maycee Barber (10-2) stepped into the Octagon on Saturday night looking to build a win streak. In July 2021, the popular MMA prospect earned a split decision victory over Miranda Maverick, recovering from her loss against Alexa Grasso at UFC 258 in February 2021. Barber faced a tough test in Montana De La Rosa (12-7), who most recently earned a stunning TKO victory over Ariane Lipski.
At age 23, Barber entered UFC Vegas 52 as the youngest fighter on the night’s card and currently ranks as the fourth-youngest female fighter in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Against De La Rosa, “The Future” demonstrated a new level of maturity and strategy right from the start.
