Mackenzie Dern 5-0 MMA is set to meet Ashley “The Spider Monkey” Yoder 5-3 MMA (0-2 UFC) in her UFC debut at UFC 222 on March 3, 2018.
Dern is undefeated with her last win coming over Kaline “The Dark Angel” Medeiros at Invicta FC 26 in December 2017. Three of her victories come by submission with two unanimous decisions. She has competed for Legacy, LFA and Invicta FC so far in her five-fight career.
Yoder is coming of a pair of unanimous decision defeats to Justine Kish and most recently at the TUF 25 Finale Angela “Overkill” Hill. She has never been finished in her eight-fight career. With four armbar finishes herself, three in the first round, Yoder should be a good test for Dern.
Other bouts on the card include:
Cat Zingano vs Ketlen Vieira
Stefan Struve vs Andrei Arlovski
Hector Lombard vs C.B. Dollaway
Sean O’Malley vs Andre Soukhamthath
