With the level of talent and massive success that she has had, coupled with the fact that she is already facing high level competition by fighting inside the UFC’s octagon, one can be forgiven to forget the fact that Maycee Barber is still just a young prospect who is only twenty years old and still has plenty of years left before she hits her prime. However, there are already plenty of comparisons being made between her and the sports’ most well known female face, i.e. Ronda Rousey. Though, Barber has now shrugged off all the comparisons with Rousey.
Barber even told MMA Fighting that if she ever loses a fight, her comeback will be much different than Rousey’s. Here’s what she had to say:
In a way, I guess people can look at it in a way that, ‘Oh she is undefeated and she has got the thing like Ronda did but I’m a completely different person to Ronda and that is no disrespect to her. She is a phenomenal athlete, a phenomenal fighter. She had an amazing career, but I feel like I’m gonna take my career a little bit different.
If I ever do get a loss, which I am gonna continue to fight well so that I never get one, but you know if I ever do I hope that I can come back a little bit differently than she did.
