Background[edit]

Barber was born in Greeley, Colorado. She began pursuing mixed martial arts (MMA) at an early age and set her eyes on becoming a professional fighter. In an interview with Yahoo Sports' Kevin Iole, Barber's father, Bucky Barber, said: "At that point, it was, 'OK, the better we make her as a fighter, the less damage she's going to take.' So we started to travel, and we took her literally all over the United States."[4]

Barber turned pro at the age of 19 after winning one amateur fight where she won the fight in 20 seconds and she joined Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) after the fight.
