Mackenzie Dern e1469549129499

Mackenzie Dern is one of the most feared Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioners in the world right now, and she showcased just why that is when she defeated Montana Stewart in their Legacy FC 61 bout in Dallas last night (October 15, 2016).

In the first round of the contest the bout found its way to the ground, somewhere Dern is comfortable to say the very least, and the BJJ world champion showcased her amazing ability when she locked in both an omoplata and a rear-naked choke simultaneously.


This is the first time in Dern’s short mixed martial arts career (2-0) that we’ve seen her utilize her tremendous ground ability, as her first victory came by way of unanimous decision. Following the fight Dern stated she wants to fight again on December 2nd in hopes of quickly landing a contract to fight in the UFC.

If Dern can continue dominating female MMA the way she has been doing so far in her young tenure in the sport, it may only be a matter of time before we see the MMA Lab product competing in the Octagon.
