According to a report from MMA Fighting, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace Mackenzie Dern will be making her UFC debut in 2018.
Dern is slated to face Ashley Yoder at UFC 222 on March 3 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The promotion has yet to announce a main event for UFC 222, which is set for the T-Mobile Arena.
In December, Dern made her Invicta Fighting Championships debut at Invicta FC 26 with a victory over Kaline Medeiros. With the submission victory Dern moved to an undefeated record of 5-0.
Yoder (5-3) is coming off back-to-back losses to Angela Hill and Justine Kish.Follow MyMMANews.com on Social Media
