Last month, 20-year-old strawweight Maycee Barber got her third win of UFC career when she defeated Gillian Robertson via TKO in the first round at TD Garden Arena in Boston at UFC on ESPN 6.
She has caused quite a stir in the strawweight division having won three straight fights via TKO. After the fight, she called out Paige VanZant for a fight and said that she would ruin her Instagram career. Following her callout, PVZ tagged 62 female fighters from flyweight and strawweight division she is willing to fight in an Instagram post except for Maycee Barber.
The fight will take place at the T-Mobile Arena on January 18 in Las Vegas. Modafferi is coming off of a unanimous decision loss to Jennifer Maia at UFC on ESPN 4 earlier in July.
Her last victory came against Antonina Shevchenko at UFC Fight Night 149 in April earlier this year.
UFC 246 may be headlined by former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor against Donald ‘Cowboy’Cerrone.
