Maycee “The Future” Barber is fighting for the first time in the UFC this Saturday at UFC Denver and we should all be excited! She is one of the new waves of next-gen fighters who are elite everywhere and have trained every discipline of martial arts since they had the ability to walk. Barber has one goal, to become the youngest ever UFC champion, and at the age of 20 she has the time to do it, but it needs to be quick to beat Jon Jones’ current record.
“The Future” has a perfect pro record of 5-0 and has only been professionally fighting for 17 months but has shown such an ability in very little time. In her last fight, which took place on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, Barber fought Jamie Colleen and she dominated the entire fight. She looked in control from start to finish and had all the answers to the questions Colleen had in store for her. In the third round Colleen could take no more, Barber put a beating on her opponent and earned the TKO victory leaving UFC President Dana White no other alternative but to take note and offer Barber the contract she so thoroughly deserves.
Barber was scheduled to fight Maia Stevenson, but Stevenson was pulled off the card due to an injury, so Hannah Cifers has stepped into the fight slot. Barber has taken to social media often of late to declare just how ready she is, and we cannot wait to see her career unfold right before our very eyes!
