It’s now official.
After announcing at the end of 2015 that she was making slow transition to MMA, Mackenzie Dern has now a set dat for her debut.
Legacy FC announced this Thursday that Dern’s first fight on July 22, in Dallas, Texas against a still undisclosed opponent.
Mackenzie, both a gi and no-gi world champion and also an ADCC champion, is training at MMA LAB, in Phoenix, Arizona.
Earlier this year, Mackenzie talked to GRACIEMAG about her plans coming to MMA: “I am a competitor who’s always going after new challenges! For sure, I want to be the UFC strawweight champion. If I am going to get punched, then I want to at least do it to become the best in the world! Jiu-Jitsu will always be in my heart and I know that I have the Jiu-Jitsu community behind me, so I will do my best to represent the gentle art in the cage.”
