Maycee "The Future" Barber is a 21-year-old highly skilled, Mixed Martial Artist from Wisconsin, who fights in the UFC. She holds 7 professional wins, no losses, and a powerful mental framework that has her on track to becoming a rising star. 

Her entrance into the UFC was officially made with her impressive win in the Octagon, featured on Dana White's Contender Series in 2018. She’s an exciting fighter with power and a relentless style. 

One of the first things that really got my attention with Maycee was her incredible confidence. She is not shy at all in letting the world know, that she will become a UFC Champion in her near future.  With that said, she is a growth-minded girl, who on the curious path developing her greatest potential in out and of the Octagon.

We had a lot of fun, as you will clearly hear in this episode, talking about her backstory to becoming a mixed martial artist, her adversities with weight cutting, rerouting metabolism issues, what she’s loving in her career right now and much more.

I love how focused and determined she is to actualize the vision she holds for her career and it’s to witness her process from mindset to action, towards it.  There are a lot of mindset gems in this talk that will elevate your mind.
