World champion Mackenzie Dern achieved a great result in her second MMA bout. At Legacy FC 61, held last night in Dallas, Texas, she was victorious as she used a rear naked choke on Montana Stewart. This was Dern’s first submission win in MMA.
The fight began with Dern trading strikes standing with Stewart and attempting the whole time to shorten the distance to take her opponent down. Halfway through the round, Dern was able to perform an uchi-mata and fell on the mount. From there, Dern threw some strikes and tried for an armbar, which Stewart defended well against. On the bottom, Dern attempted an omoplata, switched to the crucifix and then sank the RNC that forced Stewart to surrender.
