LAS VEGAS – Maycee Barber’s progression continued Saturday at UFC 276, and she sent a former title challenger into retirement, to boot.

Barber (11-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) took a unanimous decision from Jessica Eye (15-11 MMA, 5-10 UFC), who arguably was one of her most accomplished opponents to date. The win was Barber’s third straight after back-to-back losses.

Now the women’s flyweight said her current contract is up, and she wants to have a major conversation with UFC president Dana White to work out a new deal on what she hopes is a push for a title shot.

“That was the last fight on my deal,” Barber said at her post-fight news conference at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. “I was ranked No. 13 going into this, so I want to sit down and I want to talk to them, and I really want to game plan out where my contract was at and how we’re going to chase the title. I’m not that far away from chasing it, and I’m working on improving in that. I’m excited to see where this career goes.”

Check out Barber’s full interview in the video above.
