    Mackenzie Dern’s UFC debut will headline FS1 portion of UFC 222 fight card

    AT STRAW WEIGHT vs Ashley Yoder...

    personally, I really hope she does well . She has very little experience as an MMA fighter. It is interesting though how she could likely beat every girl in the division if she can manage to Ronda Rousey her way to the top. Meaning I believe she could beat the champ if it went to the ground. Girl is an ADCC and no gi BJJ World Champion.

    YOU MAY HAVE DIF OPINIONS SO LETS HEAR THEM SHERDOG!

    Been watching her in Legacy since the beginning. Has legit BJJ skills. But needs overall work. That body... Dang. She will have a lot of casual fans.

    Against Yoder I think she will do well, even if she doesn't get the W.

    Long term in the UFC... not so much.

    Maybe she will prove me wrong though.

    She’s just Cynthia Calvillo with better bjj. She beats Yoder and wins fights until top7. It’ll come rather quick as she fights often. Depends on how she develops and the matchups.

    Women should be at home making babies. Preferably man-child.

    She'll miss weight and mediocre overall. But I'd hit it in a whole different way

    She's essentially Demian Maia but with really shitty takedowns.
    Until she fixes that, many of her fights will look like Maia vs. Woodley, either that or she gets straight up starched on the feet.

    Dern will beat a few cans, then get destroyed when she fights someone in the Top 5. But, she will be popular and sell tickets, so good investment on the part of the UFC.

    She needs to work her wrestling game like mad if she wants to succeed in the UFC. With her BJJ, she should have an edge over anyone in that division on the ground, but she's not great at getting the fight there yet.

    Her camp should be focusing a lot on wrestling and stand up defense for a while.
