A bout in the Women's Flyweight division kicked off the UFC 298 early prelims, which saw Miranda Maverick pick up a unanimous decision victory over Andrea Lee.

The fight started well for Lee, who suplexed Maverick down to the mat and controlled her with her ground game. However, Maverick returned to her feet and outstruck her across the rest of the round.

The grappling momentum shifted to Maverick in the second round, who took Lee down against the fence. This time, Lee got back to her feet, and the rest of the round was a close striking competition.

The third and final round saw Maverick turn the pressure up, landing more strikes and out-pacing Lee across the five minutes. In the final minute, Maverick secured a takedown, but Lee threatened with a nasty triangle choke, but the clock worked against her, and she was unable to lock it up.
