Maycee Barber believes that she can beat UFC Flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko. Maycee revealed the same during one of her recent interviews and noted that the game of Shevchenko was exposed in her recent fight.

Maycee, who got a win in her last outing against Jessica Eye at UFC 276, noted that the Flyweight champion is being exposed in each fight.

“I truly believe that I could beat the champion. She’s being exposed more and more with every fight that she has, and we’re gonna continue to expose that. And I’m gonna continue to grind and chase that title, so when it happens, it happens. But when it happens, I’ll be ready,” Barber noted.

She further went on to add that she will be ready to beat Shevchenko when the opportunity arrives for her.

“I feel like I’m continuing to evolve, I’m continuing to grind. And her holes are continuing to be exposed. Taila Santos had she not got that head clash thing and her eye be swollen, I honestly think she would be the champion right now. Everything’s evolving, everything’s changing, but for me right now, I’m chasing it. And I’m growing. Do I feel like I’m ready right now? I don’t think so. I feel like I need to continue to sharpen up my striking. I need to continue to sharpen up my game. I need to continue to sharpen up my wrestling. But mentally, do I believe I could be the champion today? Absolutely,” she added.

Maycee is currently 11-2 in her professional MMA career and is on a three-fight winning streak at the moment. Shevchenko, on the other hand, has been dominating the UFC Flyweight division for a long time now and recently added another defense to her resume with a win over Taila Santos.
