Mackenzie Dern gets emotional following UFC loss ‘So many people believed in me’

Despite losing a very close fight, Mackenzie Dern showed class as she battled her emotions after the devastating loss.  

She shared an Instagram video to thank her supporter and speak directly with them.

Darn used her BJJ expertise to dominate at least two rounds during the fight but failed to secure a submission. She came close to sealing the victory on at least three occasions in the five-round fight.

“I didn’t do what I came to do,” Dern said on the UFC post-fight show. “My goal was if I got it to the ground, I should be finishing it. I have the best jiu-jitsu, I believe, in the women’s division, so I had lots of opportunities to finish and she was just the better fighter than me. I just feel I’ve been getting so much better and it’s hard to not be able to show it in the fight.

“I have so much to grow and it’s all part of the journey and I just thank Dana, the UFC, my team, the Zuckerberg family for being here and making this such a great event. I’m sorry if I made anyone sad with my performance. So many people believed in me and I believed in myself, but it’s part of the game.”

Dern impressed UFC viewers, with some believing that she should have gotten the decision. However, Yan Xiaonan put on a great display of striking and grappling defense.
