Maycee Barber might only be 20 years old, but she’s not one to wait around. One of the UFC’s youngest fighters is eager to get back in the cage as soon as possible, and there were some rumors that she might fight Paige VanZant next.

The top of the UFC St. Petersburg main card saw the company’s #7 ranked heavyweight Alistair Overeem stop the #9 ranked Aleksei Oleinik with strikes in the opening round.
The victory did not come without adversity. Oleinik was more than game, hurting Overeem on the feet early and unloading some serious volume. Overeem showed off his heart to weather the storm that was Oleinik, and began to attack with knees from the clinch. He started with the body, and then switched to the head.
