UFC fighter Miranda Maverick (7-2)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth, however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

Miranda “Fear The” Maverick is one of the brightest prospects not only in women’s MMA but all of MMA. Oh, and she is only 23 years old.

In her seven wins, Maverick has five finishes, all coming by way of submission, and her two decision wins were dominant.

Before signing to the UFC, she spent all of her career, minus one fight in Invicta FC. In 2019, she won the Invicta FC Phoenix Series 2 flyweight tournament. In the quarterfinal round, she beat Victoria Leonardo via unanimous decision and Shanna Young in the semifinal round via rear-naked choke. Maverick fought DeAnna Bennett in the finals and submitted her in the third round via rear-naked choke to win the tournament.

Maverick is coming off a dominant unanimous decision victory over Pearl Gonzales in February at Invicta FC 39: Frey vs. Cummins II. She was awarded the performance of the night. The flyweight tournament champion was supposed to return to action four months later to make her UFC debut at UFC on ESPN: Poirier vs. Hooker; however, she had to pull out due to injury.

Maverick will finally make her long-awaited UFC debut against Liana Jojua on October 24, 2020, at UFC 254.

When asked what we should expect from her fight, Maverick said, “A first or second-round finish. I want to knock her down with strikes and finish with sub.”
