Lee vs Barber Prediction
This flyweight fight is between two women heading in opposite directions. On one hand, Andrea Lee has tasted defeat in four of her last six fights. She was taken to the distance by Viviane Araujo in her last fight at UFC Vegas 54, only to lose by unanimous decision.
On the other, Maycee Barber finds herself on a three-fight winning streak after back-to-back losses. She's overcome each of her last three oppoinents by points, most recently tallying a unanimous decision win over former UFC Flyweight title challenger Jessica Eye back in July.
Barber has the advantage over Lee in most categories. Not only does she land more significant strikes per minute (5.43 vs. 4.42) while owning the superior striking defense (64% vs. 53%), but Barber has the better takedown game as well. Having the four-inch reach advantage helps her even more.
With both women going the distance more often than not, I see this being a long fight with Barber coming out on top. On top of her statistical superiority, she's won three straight fights that have reached the time limit, whereas Lee has lost four fights in a row that have done so.
Winner: Maycee Barber
Lee vs Barber Best Bet
The moneyline is the only betting option at the moment, making a Barber outright win at -250 odds the best bet for now. Make sure to check back on FanDuel Sportsbook leading up to UFC on ESPN 43 for more playable options.
