UFC fighter and Jiu-Jitsu black belt Mackenzie Dern is at it again!
The 29-year-old has been sharing photos and videos from her time traveling and her most recent Reel is certainly grabbing the attention of her 1 million followers.
Mackenzie Dern Stuns In Tight Black Crop Top
The 29-year-old Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt shared a video to Instagram with the simple caption, “Vibe ✨.”
Dern is wearing a tight black crop top paired with a tight black skirt as she is getting ready for a night out. In the video, the UFC fighter playfully sticks out her tongue as she uses different poses for her Instagram Reel.
It’s safe to say fans loved the video as it gained nearly 90,000 comments from her 1 million followers.
One user hilariously wrote, “Excuse me ma’am, I need to reach you about your cars extend warranty. Can I have your phone number? 😏😏,” as another chimed in, “My favorite Brazilian fighter❤️.”
Other fans noticed she changed her hair color from brunette to a strawberry blonde color. “And I thought she was a babe as a brunette….😮,” one fan commented.
“Gorgeous! would have loved to see you fight this Saturday. I hope to at least see you in the audience, I love you 😍❤️,” another commented on the video.
Mackenzie Dern Continues To Train
In another video, Mackenzie Dern can be seen continuing to train as she prepares for her next UFC fight.
The 29-year-old can be seen practicing her grappling moves and strengthening her legs in the gym. “Enjoy the process!,” she captioned the video. “Learn from the mistakes and just keep moving forward 💪🏽👊🏽 it’s going to be a good year!”
Dern last fought UFC fighter Yan Xiaonan at UFC Vegas 61 on Saturday, October 1, 2022. Although Dern was the favorite, she, unfortunately, ended up falling short of winning the fight. After her performance, Dern left the Octagon after a majority decision loss, extremely disappointed.
Dern told Megan Olivi on the ESPN+ post-fight show:
“I didn’t do what I came to do. My goal was, if I got it to the ground, I should be finishing it. I have the best jiu-jitsu, I believe, in the women’s division, so I had lots of opportunities to finish and she was just the better fighter than me. I just feel like I’ve been getting so [much] better and it’s hard to not be able to show it in the fight.
“I have so much to grow and it’s all part of the journey and I just thank Dana [White], the UFC, my team, the [Mark] Zuckerberg family for being here and making this such a great event. I’m sorry if I made anyone sad with my performance. I know so many people believed in me and I believed in myself, but it’s part of the game.”
At this time, there is no word on when Mackenzie Dern will fight next.
