UFC women’s strawweight Mackenzie Dern was born in Arizona. However, the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu phenom spent much time in her youth traveling back and forth between the United States and her father’s native Brazil.
Consequently, Dern speaks both Portuguese and English fluently. Still, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) elected to have a translator present during Dern’s post-fight interview back at UFC 224.
Speaking on his new podcast JRE MMA Show, Joe Rogan revealed that the translator was present to aid Dern with her English. Check out Rogan’s full thoughts on the matter within the video above.
