Brazilian Jiu Jitsu star Mackenzie Dern will make her UFC in the first quarter of 2018. As Ronda Rousey is out of competition, UFC has been looking for another champion to replace her. It’s obvious that UFC sees Mackenzie Dern as their new superstar. How will Mackenzie Dern do in the UFC it’s left to see, but this young lady, till now, is doing more than ok.
Mackenzie Dern UFC debut will take place on UFC 222 on March 3, 2018 in Las Vegas against Ashley Yoder. They will meet in The strawweight division and we hope that Dern’s problems with weight cutting are behind her.
Back in 2016 Mackenzie darn cold her MMA debut against Kenia Rosas. And now Mackenzie Dern is coming to the UFC with a 5 win streak and her recent submission over Kaline Medeiros. While, Ashley Yoder lost her two UFC fights. The first one against Justine Kish and her second UFC bout against Angela Hill.
UFC still doesn’t have a headliner for their UFC 222 event so we don’t know at the moment if Dern and Yoder will be on the main card.
It’s left to see if Brazilian Jiu jtisu multiple world champion Mackenzie Dern will be able to conquer the UFC strawweight division. We wish her a luck in her UFC Debut because she’s the true representative of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
