Arguably the most hyped prospect in the history of women’s MMA, Mackenzie Dern announced on her Instagram today that she will be returning to action in the flyweight division. Dern, who is a 5 time BJJ World Champion announced that she will fight Mandy Polk at LFA 24 on October 13th in Phoenix, Arizona.
Dern is undefeated at 3-0 in MMA but has not made the strawweight limit in her past two fights, causing her to decide to move up to the flyweight division.
Polk is 3-3 in MMA but lost her last fight to Katy Collins at RFA 46.
Dern will attempt to defend her -60KG ADCC title this weekend.
