De La Rosa won't face Maycee Barber in a flyweight bout Dec. 11 at UFC 269 after Barber announced Tuesday in a story shared on her personal Instagram account that De La Rosa withdrew from the fight.
ANALYSIS
An explanation for De La Rosa's withdrawal hasn't been provided, but the 26-year-old is presumably dealing with some sort of injury. The UFC will look to find a replacement on the card for De La Rosa, with Barber noting that she would welcome a rematch with Roxanne Modafferi, whom she lost to at UFC 246 in January 2020.

De La Rosa (12-6-1) is scheduled to face Maycee Barber (9-2-0) in a flyweight fight Dec. 11 at UFC 269, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA.nl reports.
ANALYSIS
De La Rosa improved her UFC record to 3-2-1 when she last entered the Octagon in June, defeating Ariane Lipski in the second round via ground and pound. The UFC's 16th-ranked flyweight will now get a tougher test against the 13th-ranked Barber, who recovered from back-to-back losses by scoring a split-decision victory over Miranda Maverick on July 24.

De la Rosa defeated Ariane Lipski via TKO (elbows and punches) at 4:27 of Round 2 at UFC Vegas 28 on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
De la Rosa looked every bit the part of a (-250) betting favorite here. While the Round 1 striking stats look even on paper, de la Rosa was able to take Lipski down and cut her open with an elbow. The second frame was more of the same, as de la Rosa recorded a takedown and accumulated a total of 25 significant strikes -- all to the head -- before referee Keith Peterson was forced to call of the action. While de la Rosa wasn't awarded a performance bonus, she's back in the win column with her first KO/TKO victory under the UFC banner.
Draws Lipski on June fight night card

De la Rosa will take on Ariane Lipski (orbital) in a flyweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for June 5, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
De la Rosa started her UFC run with four victories in five fights but is now winless in her last two after fighting Mayra Bueno Silva to a majority draw in February. She'll look to bounce back against Lipski, a fighter who isn't afraid to get hit in order to land her own shots (as shown by a negative striking differential). In addition to having an inch in both height and reach on Lipski, de la Rosa should have a major edge in the wrestling game. She averages 2.14 takedowns per 15 minutes, while Lipski defends them at just a 45 percent clip.
Fortunate to earn draw

February 27, 2021
De La Rosa and Mayra Bueno Silva fought to a majority draw (27-28, 28-28, 28-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
De La Rosa should be satisfied with the draw given the fact she would have been saddled with another loss had Bueno Silva not been docked a point in Round 1 for grabbing the fence. De La Rosa's biggest issue has long been her ability to damage her opposition in the striking game, but she turned up the pace in Round 2 and landed 45 of 61 total attempts. Of course, just 11 of them were of the significant variety. The definition of roster depth, De La Rosa is now 3-2-1 in her first half dozen UFC bouts. She doesn't have a single knockout victory in her career, and that lack of power in her hands makes it a near certainty there won't be an extended winning streak on the way in the future.
