Mackenzie Dern

Dern (12-2) is fifth in the UFC strawweight class and looks to climb up the ranks with a victory against her Chinese opponent. The daughter of Wellington “Megaton” Dias last fought in April against Tecla Torres and won via unanimous decision. It was Dern’s fifth win in six matches, pushing her up the 115-pound ladder. She is expected to maximize her expertise on the ground to outwit Yan and produce another submission win. Seven opponents have tapped out to the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner, who had never been stopped in 14 MMA fights.

Xiaonan Yan

Chinese dynamo Yan (15-3-1) kicked off her UFC campaign with a flourish, beating the likes of former UFC contenders Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Claudia Gadelha. Her string of sixth straight victories propelled her in the UFC strawweight rankings, where he currently ranked sixth. However, losses to 115-pound queen Carla Esparza and Marina Rodriguez halted her ascent to the top and now, she is up against Dern in a do-or-die match. A win would revitalize her career in the UFC but a loss could further pull her down the strawweight rankings.
