Miranda Maverick talks upcoming fight at UFC Vegas 64, and recent marriage

Miranda Maverick is absolutely fighting against Shanna Young at UFC Vegas 64 on Nov. 5.

While the UFC is behind with updating the fight to their website, Maverick wants all the fans and sponsors to know that the fight is indeed happening.

As for the matchup, is it was one that Maverick is very familiar with.

Maverick and Young previously fought prior to joining the UFC when the two were in Invicta FC. The two met in a tournament to determine a flyweight champion in which Maverick defeated Young by way of a submission in the second round of the tournament.

Not only did they have the fight in Invicita FC, but they were scheduled to fight at UFC 278 in August, but the fight would get canceled the day before the fight as Young had issues during her weight cut.

Now after all that, the two are finally ready to fight again in which both fighters have seen a lot of change since the first meeting.

For Maverick, she is now training in Colorado alongside of other high-level females such as Lauren Murphy, Raquel Pennington and Tecia Torres. Maverick believes it’s been the best move of her career and she’s ready to showcase the best version of herself to date on fight night.

Meanwhile, Young has had a change to training as well as she recently left her home state of Tennessee to move to Las Vegas and train at Syndicate MMA. Since joining the gym, Young picked up her first UFC victory earlier this year.

Prior to the fight, Maverick spoke with MyMMANews in detail about the matchup with Young and how much she’s enjoyed her move to train in Colorado.

She also discussed life outside the cage as she recently got married and she’s just about finished with her masters degree while working part time for a company in Hershey, Pa.
