Maycee Barber vs. Andrea Lee targeted for March 25 UFC event


Standout flyweights Maycee Barer and Andrea Lee will meet in an unannounced UFC event.

Multiple sources close to the situation told MMA Fighting that verbal agreements are in place for the bout with contracts expected to be finalized. It is not yet known where the event will take place.

Lee and

Barber are tied for No. 14 is the MMA Fighting Global Rankings women’s flyweight.

The three-fight winning streak of

Barber has fueled her entry to the fight. Since a pair of setbacks against Roxanne Modafferi (that included a blown-out knee) and Alexa Grasso, the 24-year-old has surged back with wins over Miranda Maverick, Montana de la Rosa and, most recently, one-time title challenger Jessica Eye. The win over Eye took place at UFC 276 in July. Overall, Barber is 6-2 in the UFC.

Lee hopes that she can rebound from her recent loss against Viviane Arujo at UFC Vegas , which ended her two-fight winning streak. She is 5-4 since stepping into the octagon after a title-winning run in the LFA.
