Dern recently discussed the hype she’s received since moving to professional mixed martial arts, stating to Bloodyelbow, “I just think [the Ronda Rousey comparison and hype is] a little bit unrealistic.”
“I don’t think girls were as aggressive with me as they would have been if I were unknown. They were concerned more about the defense. And I know for sure in the UFC, the girls there, they don’t care; they’re going to try and beat me up. So I feel like, for me to get better, all the attention made it a little harder for me.”
“But I don’t really think about it too much; If people think that I’m so good or they think that I’m so bad,. I just try and think about what’s the best for me. I’ve done so much with jiu-jitsu. So I’m glad to take that attention with me to MMA, but for sure I want to be able to build my own story in MMA, with my own accomplishments as not just a jiu-jitsu fighter, but an all round MMA fighter, too.”
