Dana White Reveals His Thoughts On Mackenzie Dern

Mackenzie Dern is quickly becoming one of the more popular fighters in the mixed martial arts regional circuit. Even though it is clear the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace needs to improve on her striking, she raised enough eyebrows in her first three fights to be on the UFC’s radar.

Not only is she on the matchmakers’ radars, but UFC President Dana White expressed interest in Dern himself. Dana recently spoke with TMZ and shared his thoughts on Dern and her most recent performances:

“We’ve been checking her out. She’s a little bad ass.”

“You never know how good somebody’s going to be until they get in there and start fighting the best in the world.”

“Obviously, she has a lot of potential, but will she be another Ronda [Rousey]? I don’t know.”
