A matchup of female flyweight prospects will go down on July 24.
UFC president Dana White informed promotion broadcast partner ESPN that Maycee Barber and Miranda Maverick will square off at a Fight Night card this summer. The event does not currently have a location or main event.
A former Legacy Fighting Alliance competitor and a winner on Season 2 of Dana White’s Contender Series, Barber began her MMA career with eight consecutive triumphs — including three in UFC competition. That momentum screeched to a halt in her last two outings, as she dropped back-to-back unanimous decisions to Roxanne Modafferi and Alexa Grasso.
Maverick, meanwhile, will enter the clash on a five-bout winning streak. After defeating Liana Jojua via first-round doctor stoppage in her Octagon debut at UFC 254, Maverick outpointed Gillian Robertson in her last outing at UFC 260. The Invicta FC veteran in 9-2 as a professional overall.
