Mackenzie dern had a great night at the UFC Vegas 23, dreaming of reaching the title this year. The extraordinary Brazilian fighter faced Nina Ansaroff, wife of Amanda Nunes, whom she submitted in the first round. However, she is not satisfied and admits that she is interested in reaching the division belt in a very few months, exciting the fans.
Initially, Dern She commented, “I’m ready for the best girls, but maybe I’ll fight for the belt, maybe at the end of the year. A couple more fights, because the belt wants to be 100 percent, and I’m not 100 percent on what I have to do. I just need to be 100 percent moving, and that is being able to be calm and think. I’m coming, but a first-round presentation, you can’t really see those other parts.
“But I know that even if I present my next opponents in the first round, I want to know that when I fight the champion, I am ready even if I go to the full five rounds. I don’t know, maybe a lot of girls don’t even want to fight me. Maybe the less girls want to fight me, the champion will want to fight me. All my world titles came when I felt this feeling, so I do not want to be too confident, “he said.
Know your goals
What’s more, Mackenzie He explained: “But I know that feeling when everything flows and you do your best in training, and you do it 100 percent, and that’s when everything works out. That’s what I have in MMA, finally. I know things will work out. Of course, anything can happen. If you make mistakes, the girls in the top five have a lot more experience in MMA, more than I do. But I know what it’s like to be the jiu-jitsu champion, and now I bring that same momentum in MMA. “
“When I arrive to UFCAlthough I had a lot of enthusiasm behind me, there were many haters and criticisms. ‘Oh, she’s not good at hitting. It is not good in terms of weight. And now I’m posting something like a workout, and all the comments are: ‘She’s so determined. She is a future champion. ‘ I think I’m really giving that vibe. I was ready to have fun there, so that’s what I did: have fun, “he closed Mackenzie dern.
