Prior to the loss, Maycee had gone a perfect 8-0 in her young career, which included three stoppage wins under the UFC banner.

As for Alexa Grasso (12-3 MMA), the Mexican standout will enter tonight’s UFC 258 co-main event with Maycee Barber looking to build off the momentum from her recent win over Ji Yeon Kim. Grasso has gone 4-3 thus far in the UFC since joining the promotional ranks back in the fall of 2016.
