Mackenzie Dern and Hannah Cifers started the main card tonight. Would it last longer than the fighter announcements? Dern looked to strike early. Cifers gets her up against the cage briefly, using the clinch to land a few punishing knees.
Dern’s takedown attempts thwarted as they work back center cage. Her hands look much improved, clear why she wants to stand and strike, landing a few beautiful shots.
Dern finally landed a hip toss, as Cifers got back up Dern went for a leg attack transition to a beautiful kneebar. Cifers forced to tap at 2:36 seconds of the first round. Dern becomes the first woman in UFC history to get a leg lock submission.
