As soon as the UFC releases a fight card, fans are excited to see which fighters have been added. Recently, this excitement extended to women’s strawweight battle between Jessica Andrade and Mackenzie Dern; Andrade will look to come off three straight losses this year with this bout versus Dern who recently defeated Angela Hill and looks to further her ascent within the division. The battle is scheduled to take place on November 11th at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Andrade has quickly established herself as one of the premier women’s strawweight fighters, boasting an impressive 13-3 record and currently sitting in seventh place in the rankings. Although she has experienced difficulties adapting her game to how MMA scoring works, Andrade continues to work tirelessly at every aspect of her fighting game.
Andrade is an exceptional defensive grappler and striker, winning four of her seven UFC fights via submission and boasting excellent striking. Unfortunately, this year she has been unable to find her timing and has experienced three consecutive losses against Erin Blanchfield, Yan Xiaonan and Tatiana Suarez in the Octagon.
Mackenzie Dern is another top-10 contender in her division with a similar fighting style and fighting ability as Andrade. A powerful striker with an efficient ground game, Dern recently defeated Angela Hill via unanimous decision in her last bout and earned herself a Fight of the Night bonus for that performance.
Both fighters have experienced some challenges in their personal lives in recent months, both divorcing. At UFC 295 media day they opened up about this matter but remain hopeful they can use these issues as fuel for an entertaining fight on Saturday night.
It should come as no surprise that fighters like Andrade and Dern have strong work ethics and always put forth their best performances inside the cage. As Andrade and Dern both bring immense experience into their fight on November 11th, it should be exciting to witness which will come out victorious.
