Best Fighting Championship (UFC) strawweight submission expert Mackenzie Dern has now received 3 in a row and 5 of her final 6, strengthening her experienced blended martial arts (MMA) report to 10-1 with six finishes, which includes 3 inside of the Octagon.
Obviously, lovers have by now started off evaluating her to the now-retired Ronda Rousey, a record-breaking judoka and former bantamweight winner who racked up eight straight armbar submissions to kick off her pro job.
“That started when I started with my knockdown of Amanda Cooper, I knocked her down then got the submission, I started kinda setting up my very own model,” Dern mentioned at the UFC 256 put up-struggle press conference (look at it right here). “Ronda has a good style, aggressive, but I consider when I commence to get the leg locks I have some thing diverse, definitely diverse, the jiu-jitsu, these leg locks from the bottom, exactly where people feel you are dropping.”
Dern, 27, is fresh off her unanimous conclusion victory more than Virna Jandiroba at the UFC 256 pay out-for every-see (PPV) event previous weekend in Las Vegas, a tricky-fought struggle that may perhaps not have broken any records, but did stop up breaking Dern’s nose.
“I sort just established my purpose on breaking data,” Dern ongoing. “Ronda broke documents, I’m gonna break far more documents. I’m just concentrated on that, one straight line, you know the horse has the [blinders]. It was a pleasure for me that everyone was declaring that, but it was pretty simple for me to aim on my have targets and try to be a legend.”
Dern is at the moment ranked No. 11 at 115 lbs ..
