With Maycee Barber Out , Miranda Maverick to Face Erin Blanchfield at UFC 269

Miranda Maurek will replace injured Macy Barber in the women's flyweight bout against Erin Blancheld at UFC 269 in Las Vegas on December 11. Both sides have verbally agreed to compete with the soon-to-be-signed agreements. Influential Fight TV sources confirmed the verbal agreement but declined to be named as the promotion is yet to be formally announced. Miranda Rachel Maurek is an American mixed martial artist who competes in the flyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championships. She competed in the flyweight division of the Invicta Fighting Championships. As of October 4, 2021, she is ranked # 15 in the UFC Women's Flyweight Rankings. Maverick (9-3), Invicta FC is the winner of the former Invicta Phoenix Series One Night Tournament. They are 2-1 in the UFC to date. Coincidentally, this was the last time she competed against Barber, and she suffered a loss due to a close division decision. Like Blanchfield, Maverick looked like a blue-chip prospect early in her career, and many saw her decision to split as a barber move. Blanchfield (7-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC), on the other hand, was one of the most popular flyweight prospects when it signed with Blancfield and UFC in early 2021. Blanchfield made his promotional debut on September 18th. What happened when he defeated Sarah Alpar by a unanimous decision? The victory extended the series to four. UFC 269 will take place on December 11, 2021 at the T-Mobile Arena, and is the title of a light-hearted title fight between Charlies Oliveira and Dustin Poirier. Amanda Nunes defended her bantamweight title against Juliana Peیناa in the co-main event. The current lineup for the 2021 Final PPV consists of the following bouts: Charles Oliveira (c) Dustin Poirier - for the UFC Lightweight Championship Amanda Nunes (c) vs. Julianna Peña - For the UFC Women's Bantamweight Championship Leon Edwards vs. George Masvidel Kai Kara-France vs. Cody Garbrand Rawlian Paiwa vs. Sean O'Malley Geoff Neal vs. Santiago Ponzenebio Dominic Cruz vs. Pedro Manhoz Andre Moniz vs. Drax du Plessis Alex Perez vs. Matt Chanel Ryan Hall vs. Derek Munner Gillian Robertson vs. Priscilla Cachuira Randy Costa vs. Tony Kelly Josh Emmett vs. Dan Egg Bruno Silva vs. Jordan Wright Erin Blancheld vs. Miranda Maurek
