Miranda Maverick says her upcoming fight with Gillian Robertson at UFC 258 in February is the bout we’ve all been waiting for.
Maverick, 23, is on a four-fight win streak, including her debut octagon bout against Liana Jojua at UFC 254 in October 2020.
It’s what you’ve all been waiting for and I have too.

Meanwhile Robertson, 25, is looking to rebound from a disappointing decision loss to Talia Santos at UFC on ESPN+ 41 last December. The Canadian submitted Pearl Gonzalez in a no-Gi contest at Chael Sonnen’s Submission Underground event in December 2020.
This why I will always F with @savage_ufc. NO ONE works harder and is more dedicated to their craft than her. Setbacks mean nothing and we will continue to fight whoever steps in front of us. @Mickmaynard2 @Abraham_kawa @FirstRoundMgmt #wewilldomore pic.twitter.com/DjdHakmLHF

Robertson also won her remaining two bouts in 2020, one a submission win over Cortney Casey in June 2020, and the other a decision win over Poliana Botelho in October 2020.
