A BJJ black belt is heading to Invicta FC.
Moments ago on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, top flyweight prospect Mackenzie Dern announced that she has signed with Invicta FC.
Mackenzie Dern (4-0) is best known for her grappling pedigree, where she is widely considered one of the best BJJ female practitioners in the world.
After several missed weight-cut attempts for 115 pounds, Dern made the decision to move up to 125 pounds for her last fight. Despite finding success at 125, Dern will be attempting to make 115 once more to face Invicta’s Kaline Medeiros in a strawweight bout.
Dern last competed in a flyweight bout for LFA, knocking down and submitting Mandy Polk in the first round. Dern holds wins over Montana Stewart and Katherine Roy in MMA, as well a BJJ-tournament win over Gabi Garcia.
Dern vs Medeiros takes place at Invicta FC 26 in Kansas City, Missouri, on December 8.
Will Dern continue her undefeated streak in Invicta?
