Mackenzie Dern wants to compete against Rose Namajunas and Ffion Davies…
In a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu match!
Dern made her challenge public during a recent press conference for a novel BJJ promotion, Abu Dhabi Extreme Championship (ADXC), which is set to launch in October this year:
I would love to fight on this event. Against Rose Namajunas would be amazing.
If you see that we have rounds, this style, this dynamic of this organization. For you to have one round and have a minute with your coaches to think and correct, and come back again and try to go again with the same opponent…
That’s amazing for you to push forward.
I think me and Rose Namajunas would be a great fight.
I would also like to fight Ffion Davies. She’s more Jiu-Jitsu you know? So I would like to face her in the organization.
