Mackenzie Dern outlasts Tecia Torres in a back-and-forth match at UFC 273.
UFC strawweight contender Mackenzie Dern returned to victory with a split decision win over Tecia Torres at UFC 273.
Torres had her feet in the first few minutes of the fight, finding her timing with her punch and confusing Dern with her speed. But Dern found her rhythm with her Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Round 2 and almost ended the fight with several close submission attempts.
Round 3 was a back-and-forth from start to finish, but Dern ended up landing the stronger punches and ended up taking the unanimous decision win.
Dern rebounded strongly at UFC 273 after suffering the first loss of her UFC tenure to Marina Rodriguez. Previously, she had victories over Hannah Cifers and Nina Nunes.
