    “Other than the weight issue, I thought she looked great. That is something, I’ve always wanted to test my jiu-jitsu against, that would be awesome, I would like to face her. But, she just has to get her shit together and that may be down the road.

    She beat Gabi Garcia in a jiu-jitsu match, so that would be awesome. And she can obviously strike a little bit. She has that heavy first step, that a wrestler has sometimes that good right hand. You can tell she has that style developing. So it will be interesting to see if she can fix her issues and maybe she can be a future contender.”

    Seems like a pretty reasonable assessment by Rose. Dern isn't ready yet but she might be down the road, and Rose would like to fighter her when that day comes. Plus she garners a lot of interest so it would be an interesting fight for the fans.

    Yeah after all Rose did take an L to the Cookie Monster. Takes guts to want to challenge yourself against strong grapplers like that.

    I still believe Maryna Moroz can climb back up the rankings too and she has wicked subs. I suppose there aren't really that many specialist grapplers in the div.

    Kenzie will have a great chance beating rose in a couple years. Especially if she get her weight under control.

    Kenzie has power and great bjj .

    McKenzie Derp is not going to stick around long enough to become a legit contender. 1-2 bad losses and she’s out.

    Of course, anything is possible, and UFC can try and push her into a shitle tot before she’s ready; it will look similar to Demian Maia’s two title shots, spamming telegraphed takedowns and winging air jabs.

    gabby has also beaten her multiple times...but then, she out weighs dern by like 100lbs...and most likely on an ungodly amount of juice.

    Thug Rose is a brat but she would destroy Thicc Dern.

    So would JJ. And Andrade. And Claudia. And Karolina

    I don't know about an easy fight. If it hits the ground Dern wins.

    If only Rose would start regressing to a Lithuanian accent, Mackenzie has shown you the way to go girl.

    If I recall correctly, Dern fought Garcia to what was essentially a draw between them, but Garcia managed to accrue a penalty point for doing something she shouldn't have done, and so that gave Dern the win.
