Mackenzie Dern Form


Mackenzie Dern has won five of her last six fights to put herself in the strawweight title picture.

Dern suffered her first career loss in October 2019 when she dropped a decision to Amanda Ribas.

She bounced back quickly though recording back-to-back first round submission wins against Hannah Cifers and Randa Markos.

The 29-year-old then beat Virna Jandiroba by decision before submitting Nina Nunes in the first round.

Dern’s win streak was halted in her final outing of 2021, when she dropped a decision to Marina Rodriguez, but she has got back on track in 2022.

She claimed a split decision win over Tecia Torres in April to improve her record to 12-2 with seven submission wins.

Xiaonan Yan Form


Xiaonan Yan goes into this fight looking to snap a two-fight losing sequence that has put her outside of the top five in the division.

Yan debuted in the UFC in November 2017 and went on a six-fight win streak to climb the ladder.

The 33-year-old Chinese fighter went the distance in all six of those victories, with the final three fights in that run coming against top tier opposition.

Yan beat Angela Hill, Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Claudia Gadelha on the judges’ scorecards.

However, that streak was halted in May 2021 when she was knocked out in the second round by Carla Esparza.

She then lost a split decision to Marina Rodriguez earlier this year to fall to 15-3 with one No Contest.
