Miranda Maverick discusses her upcoming fight at UFC 289

Miranda Maverick will technically be going into enemy territory at UFC 289, but that doesn’t bother her.

After closing out 2022 with a unanimous decision win over Shanna Young, Maverick wanted to have a quick turnaround in the hopes of having an active 2023.

We’ll things didn’t exactly turnout that way, as UFC 289 on June 10 will be her first fight of the year, but at least it will be the matchup she wanted.

With most of the fighters ranked in front of Maverick having fights scheduled, Maverick made the decision to call out someone who is just outside the rankings in Jasmine Jasudavicius.

Maverick wanted the fight because she believes Jasudavicius is a talented fighter and will be bring a massive fan base to the fight.

Jasudavicius is from Canada and UFC 289 will be held in Vancouver, which will give her a whole nation behind her on fight night.

Canadian fans are usually nice and respectful, but if Maverick receives some boo’s, she won’t mind it and she looks forward to the scrap.

If Maverick is to get the win, she wants to be active and she is still hoping to get three fights in this year and she wants some bigger matchups too.

Maverick could be having those bigger matchups now, but a controversial split decision loss to Maycee Barber in 2021, would slow up Maverick’s rise towards the top tier of the flyweight division.

That loss still bothers her, but at 25-years-old, the sky is the limit for Maverick and she feels that she is ready to make a big run.

Ahead of UFC 289, Maverick spoke with MyMMANews about her upcoming fight with Jasudavicius, having six UFC fights at just 25-years-old and she shared her thoughts on a few topics within the UFC’s women’s divisions.
