Maycee Barber Finally Makes Long-Awaited Return

The long-awaited return of Maycee Barber is coming to an end. After a year of inactivity due to knee injuries, she will take on the popular Mexican Alexa Grasso, on Feb 13th, 2021. Although the fight is already booked, the venue has yet to be decided.

This will be the first time we will see Maycee Barber step into the octagon since she suffered her first career loss in January at UFC 246. During the fight, Maycee tore her knee and lost via unanimous decision at the hands of Roxanne Modafferi. She has since then been undergoing rehabilitation and conditioning hoping to get back in the octagon.

Maycee Barber (8-1) faces a tough challenge in Alexa Grasso (12-3), who is fresh from a win in August, against Ji Yeon Kim. It is very interesting to see how the massive prospect comes back after a tough first loss of her career.

Will Maycee Barber be back to success, or will another heartbreak derails the young career of Maycee Barber?
