Maycee Barber Wants To Be PVZ’s Final UFC Opponent

Maycee Barber is back in action at UFC Fight Night Boston, facing Gillian Robertson in a women’s flyweight division attraction.

While Barber isn’t looking past Robertson, one opponent she’d like to face is Paige VanZant, in what could be PVZ’s final UFC bout.

“Now she makes more money outside than she does in fighting because she’s not fighting,” Barber said to The Score (via Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie). “As far as her last fight on her contract, that’s my fight. If she wants to fight in Bellator, if she wants to move out, she can fight me on her last fight on her contract, or she can never fight again, and that’s up to her.”

PVZ revealed that there is one more fight left on her contract and then the fighter plans on testing out the free agent market.

Barber also says that VanZant is already making excuses to avoid facing her in the Octagon.

“She was kind of saying that there’s no story, but at the same time she made it a story,” Barber said. “I guess word for word, she said she didn’t want to reward me with a fight because I’m disrespectful. In my opinion, if someone disrespects me, and I don’t really like them, I kind of want to beat them up. However, she can’t beat me up, so her only excuse to not fight me is, ‘Oh, well, she’s disrespectful. I don’t want to fight her and reward her with a fight with me.’ So that’s her only excuse now that she has to not fight me.”

UFC Fight Night Boston takes place on Friday, October 18 from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts with Dominick Reyes and Chris Weidman headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on ESPN.
