Rose Namajunas, Maycee Barber Slated to Headline UFC Card on July 13



A women’s flyweight bout with No. 1 contender implications has been targeted to headline an Ultimate Fighting Championship event on July 13.

Former strawweight champion Rose Namajunas is expected to face Maycee Barber in the main event of a UFC Fight Night card in Denver. Multiple outlets confirmed that the bout is in the works following an initial report from Ariel Helwani. A venue for the event has not been announced.

Namajunas is 1-1 since moving to 125 pounds following a successful stint at strawweight that included two title reigns. After dropping a unanimous verdict against Manon Fiorot in her flyweight debut at UFC Fight Night 226, “Thug” Rose rebounded with a five-round decision triumph over Amanda Ribas in her last outing in the UFC on ESPN 53 main event.

Barber, meanwhile, enters the matchup on a six-bout winning streak within the Las Vegas-based promotion. The 25-year-old Dana White's Contender Series alum earned her most significant victory to date at UFC 299, where she defeated former 125-pound title challenger Katlyn Cerminara via unanimous decision.
