Remember when people clamored for Kyra Gracie to do MMA for like several years before Ronda showed up? Well, Mackenzie Dern is my 1:1 comparison to Kyra.

Mackenzie's success in MMA is directly tied to her giving or not giving a fuck. She is going to need someone who puts his or her foot down to stop the bullshit. Hence, why John Crouch had to kick her out of MMA Lab as Dern talked about the last week or so. She wants to kick it with her friends in Los Angeles and do jiu-jitsu.

Mackenzie Dern also seems to be a really large strawweight, it would probably be good for her health, the UFC, and the 125 lbs. division if she move up.  To your point though, she doesn't strike me as the personality type that would excel in high level MMA.  She's exactly like the goofy, fun loving, dudes you meet in a jiu-jitsu gym.  Sure, they can choke you unconscious in more ways than they can count, but after you woke up they'd give you a five and show you how to defend the choke.  She ain't exactly a Ronda Rousey "I'm going into the cage to kill you dead" type.  I'm rooting for her, but her striking is rudimentary, her wrestling might be worse, and if she is already blowing weight by over five pounds I don't know how far she'll go.

UFC fighters this year have missed weight 5 times and still fought all have won so Dern is looking to make it 6-0. 

Her next fight should be at flyweight unless you make in the contract a poison pill if she misses weight again at 115.

Sultan Aliev has a meteor growing out of the side of his face.

That eye is gnarly!  Good stoppage by the doctor because he will need to go to the hospital to deal with the eye/broken orbital bone.
