Mackenzie Dern vs Randa Markos- As it Happened
The fight started with both fighters maintaining their composure and calm. As this was evidently a very important fight for both. Having made 5 and 6 strikes respectively both had equal control on the fight in the first round. However some would suggest Dern leading the first round.
What was significant however was the urge of Dern to catch Markos in a submissive position. Which happened after halfway in round 1. Resulting in Markos taping out after being caught in an armbar and Dern registered her 9th win in professional MMA career.
