Mackenzie Dern showed her world-level jiu-jitsu once again. After brief period of clinch against Hannah Cifers, the grappling ace managed to take the fight to the ground secure a gnarly kneebar halfway through the first round on the UFC on ESPN 9 main card. On Twitter, pro fighters reacted to the finish.
