Gastelum Bests Jacare Via Decision, Nunes and Oleinik Sub

UFC 224 is probably one of the major signs that UFC has a major star on their hand in Mackenzie Dern. In her 2nd fight in the octagon, Dern managed to be third name on the card and judging by the social media talk she was likely the most talked about performer last night. Now some of that wasn’t positive however there’s definitive star potential there. The other prominent Brazilian on the card, Ronaldo Jacare fell on hard times as Gastelum’s chin proved very resistant.
