Strawweight prospect Mackenzie Dern has her first fight of 2020 lined up.
Dern (7-1) is a decorated, multi-time jiu-jitsu world champion who’s been a professional MMA fighter since 2016. She made her UFC debut in March of 2018, winning a split decision over Ashley Yoder. An impressive knockdown and submission of Amanda Cooper soon followed, but went on maternity leave afterward. She returned to competition in October, a mere four months after giving birth to her daughter, but lost a unanimous decision to Amanda Ribas at UFC Tampa.
