The UFC adds Maycee Barber to take on Miranda Maverick on July 24th. As of now, the event doesn’t have a location or venue. UFC president Dana White announced the news to ESPN of the booking on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.
Maycee Barber is coming off two-straight unanimous decision losses. Barber was defeated by former UFC women’s flyweight title challenger Roxanne Modafferi back in January 2020 at UFC 246: McGregor vs. Cerrone. Barber injured her knee during that bout and was out for 13 months. In her return to the Octagon in February 2021 she was defeated by Mexico’s Alexa Grasso at UFC 258: Usman vs. Burns.
Miranda Maverick debuted and defeated Liana Jojua by TKO at the end of the first round due to a cut at UFC 254: Khabib vs. Gaethje back in October. She made her return on March 27th and won via unanimous decision against Gillian Robertson at UFC 260: Miocic vs. N’Gannou 2.
