Mackenzie Dern made gentle work of her opponent Nina Ansaroff after submitting her with an armbar in the direction of the top of the primary spherical. What was extra spectacular than the submission itself, was the calm demeanor of Dern while she peeled off the arms of Ansaroff with the seconds left of the spherical.
This victory gave the previous ADCC Champion her fourth win in a row within the UFC, and brings her MMA file to a formidable 11-1. Unsurprisingly, most of her wins have got here by submissions and she or he now seems set to crack the highest 10 within the ladies’s Straw weight class. Because it occurs, earlier than the bout she was ranked eleventh within the Straw weight division, while Ansaroff was ranked twelfth. In the course of the combat, you wouldn’t have thought they the place ranked so intently. With this in thoughts, one other win might legitimately earn her a title shot in opposition to Zhang Weili.
That is made much more spectacular, when acknowledging that she gave delivery in 2019 which can have undoubtedly paid a toll on her physique. Anyway, it doesn’t appear to have effected her an excessive amount of, having dominated ladies’s MMA since. That is undoubtedly successful story for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu followers to cling on to. Arguably, the final ladies’s MMA star to largely depend on grappling was Ronda Rousey. If Dern does go on to win her subsequent match or two, then she might begin to get talked about in the same bracket to Rousey, and as a fan of grappling it’s implausible to see.
