Maycee Barber’s quick rise in MMA took another hit on Saturday when “The Future” suffered a second consecutive loss in her UFC 258 fight with Alexa Grasso.
Grasso (13-3 MMA, 5-3 UFC) put together one of the finest performance of her career in outpointing Barber (8-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) over the course of their three-round strawweight matchup to win a unanimous decision. Her victory at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas gave Grasso back-to-back octagon triumphs for the first time.

Grasso is looking good on the outside and controlling the tie ups well.
