Mackenzie Dern is a 23 year old hottie who has transitioned from Jiu Jitsu to MMA. The Jiu Jitsu champ is poised to take the MMA community by storm.
According to MMA Junkie, she's already in talks with the UFC:
“The UFC talked to us already,” Dern said. “My team and my coaches, we talked with them, and we definitely want to – I want to be there. I’m hoping in 2017 I’ll be there. But I don’t want to get just thrown into the shark tank. I want to go in there being a shark. I don’t want to be the fish for the sharks.
“I respect all the girls there, and I know they’re at the highest level. It’s not jiu-jitsu. It’s a different sport. And I know that jiu-jitsu can help me for so long, but I know that sooner or later, I’ll have to be ready to take them down or something like that. So we’re just taking our time. I hope in 2017 I can be in the UFC. We’re just being patient and trying to get better as fast as possible. And while I’m doing that, I’m just enjoying the process.”
Until that 2017 debut we'll just have to keep up with the Jiu Jitsu champ on Instagram, where she is also heating things up.
