Mackenzie Dern vs. Angela Hill set for May 13th!
Mackenzie Dern is set to return on May 13th against Angela ‘Overkill’ Hill on May 13th. Looking to return to winning ways after going 1-2 in her last 3 bouts, Dern will be ready to make a statement against the 12th-ranked Hill. In Dern’s last bout, she came up short against Xiaonan Yan, in an extremely closely contested split decision loss. Mackenzie Dern’s grappling will potentially be a deciding factor for this bout with it being seen as a typical striker vs grappler matchup.
Angela Hill is currently riding a 2 fight-winning streak and will be looking to break inside of the top 10 with a win over Mackenzie Dern, who is currently ranked No.7. Hill’s last two wins have been against Lupita Goodinez and Emily Ducote, which helped Hill avoid a four-fight skid and seemingly let her pick momentum back up in the division once again with the chance to make a run at the title if she can extend her winning streak to three.
