In a thrilling display of skill and determination, Maycee Barber emerged victorious in a grueling battle, marking one of the toughest challenges she has faced in her career thus far. The co-main event at UFC Jacksonville showcased Barber’s resilience as she engaged in a bloody clash with a formidable opponent, Amanda Ribas (12-4), in a flyweight bout. Both fighters showcased incredible tenacity, resulting in profuse bleeding from their faces. Ultimately, it was Barber (13-2) who secured the win, delivering a relentless barrage of strikes in the second round that prompted referee Keith Peterson to intervene and call the fight to a halt.

The stoppage occurred at 3 minutes and 42 seconds into the second round, solidifying Barber’s fifth consecutive victory. This win marked her first finish since her TKO triumph over Gillian Robertson in October 2019. Having previously achieved a series of hard-fought decision victories, Barber demonstrated her ability to close the distance and finish fights.

Reflecting on her performance in a post-fight interview, Barber expressed her satisfaction with the outcome. She believed that her showdown with Ribas warranted the “Fight of the Night” recognition, urging the crowd to acknowledge the intensity of their battle. In the first round, Barber drew first blood by landing a powerful left hand that fractured Ribas’ nose, igniting a determination within her. She likened herself to Tabatha Ricci, a successful strawweight fighter who also emerged victorious earlier in the event.

Ribas displayed incredible resilience throughout the contest, relentlessly pressing forward and launching a barrage of low kicks and fast punches. However, Barber met her opponent head-on, delivering heavy blows with increasing accuracy as the fight progressed. By the midpoint of the second round, both fighters’ faces were drenched in blood.

Despite Ribas’ attempts to take the fight to the ground, Barber thwarted her submission endeavors after being taken down. She showcased her ground game by gaining top position and executing powerful ground-and-pound strikes. The fight ultimately concluded when Barber’s short yet impactful left hand stunned Ribas, leading her to desperately pursue a takedown. However, Barber continued to unleash a flurry of strikes, with Ribas clinging to her leg until the referee intervened and called an end to the contest.

Ribas, a versatile fighter competing in both the strawweight and flyweight divisions, has experienced a mixed run of wins and losses in her past six fights.
