First reported by ESPN, the UFC is hoping to finalize a bout between two of the flyweight division’s hottest prospects.
At 24-years-old, Gillian Robertson (7-3) holds the record for most UFC flyweight wins and finishes at four. At UFC 240, she improved to 4-1 in the promotion when she finished Sarah Frota in the second round with elbows.
Reports of Robertson vs. Barber began circulating just days after her last fight.
Maycee Barber (7-0) has been vocal about wanting to get back into the Octagon before the year is over— even taking to social media to claim that Paige VanZant, Mackenzie Dern, and Montana de la Rosa have all turned down offers to fight her.
Barber broke into the UFC through the Contender Series. Since signing, Barber has gone 2-0 with finishes over Hannah Cifers and JJ Aldrich.
Who will you be rooting for?
