Mackenzie Dern talks UFC debut, decision to compete at 115 pounds

Mackenzie Dern, the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Phenom, is set to make her UFC debut this weekend at UFC 222. Joey and Dodge of Split Decision MMA Podcast get a few minutes to talk with her about her choice to fight at 115, taking on Gabi Garcia and if she thinks Kyra Gracie will make the same transition to mixed martial arts.

Undefeated at 5-0, Dern enters the UFC after a win at Invicta Fighting Championships in December 2017.  She meets Ashley Yoder in the main event of the preliminary bouts on FS1.
