    Mackenzie Dern is heading to Invicta FC with an eye on staying unbeaten in her pro career.

    Dern (4-0) will fight former title challenger Kaline Medeiros (8-5) at Invicta FC 26 next month. UFC officials announced the flyweight booking today after Dern announced her signing with the promotion on The MMA Hour.

    Invicta FC 26 takes place Dec. 8 at Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo. The event will stream live on UFC Fight Pass....

    She did beat Gabi Garcia in a grappling match, didn't she? I think?

    I think she's making right move, and so is Invicta, since they've lost so much talent to the UFC.

    I'd take Kaline winning the match, but great to see Dern stepping up in competition and hope she does well.

    Especially when they just started the new division at 125 that needs stars. Well here she is...

    This 100%. She said in the interview w/ Ariel she wanted to do it at 115 and mentioned girls like Sarj and others she's rolled with being way bigger.

    Acting like she is going to make 115 for the 2nd time in her career on a months notice while she is openly admitting she isn't going to use a nutritionist is fucking ridiculous.

    She would get murdered at 125. The girls there cut from 135 and are much stronger and better athletes. She is a natural 105. Even when she made 115 she looked fat.

    IIRC, she just stalled, scored zero points, and won on a Garcia penalty.

    Just because you fought at 135 doesnt mean you’ll steamroll the 125 division... ask lauren murphy how that shit worked out for her lol. Mackenzie gets wrecked by anyone in the top 10 of the 125 division.

    Dude, you have to let that Lauren Murphy thing go. It's eating you up inside.

    But, I'm not saying girls that fought at 135. I'm saying they are cutting to 125 and are at low fat and water weight to get there. She may have more skill on the ground but will get outmuscled by stronger, faster girls.

    Though dern is pretty with the extra weight (and let's face it, that has s lot to do with her popularity) she carries way to much fat and needs to diet down to a weight class more suited to her body type.

    She’s not hot. I don’t understand the people that get all horned up over her.

    That’s pretty much the only reason she’s getting any of this traction. She’s a mma 10, getting her this career.. much like heather hardy... only mackenzie is skilled and has won legit tournies.

    And the lauren murphy thing will always be there. Keeps me warm in the tundra here. But my example remains. She thought she’d steamroll chicks at 125 when dropping down from 135 since she was in over head there.
