Maycee Barber: “I’ll Be Bigger Than Conor Or Ronda”
Maycee Barber is only 20-years old, but the up and coming fighter already has world championship confidence as she prepares for the UFC’s return to Nashville on March 23rd against J.J Aldrich.
In an interview with MMA Fighting, the undefeated fighter told Dana White straight-up that she will be the biggest star he has.
“I told him that I was gonna be as big, if not bigger than Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey and all of the stars he has,” Barber told MMA Fighting. “And I am one of his next big stars. There aren’t very many right now, especially females. And I fit that perfectly. Just in terms of the person I want to portray in terms of the sport, I feel like I could fill that.”
Finishing all but one of her six fights, Barber has started to build an impressive resume, and feels like aping the “Notorious One’s” playbook “Conor McGregor did it right,” Barber said of the UFC’s first double-division champion.
“If he’s gonna fight, if he’s gonna be a public figure, he might as well be the best one he can possibly be. And he’s doing it, right? Why would I be any different?”
