It seems that UFC president Dana White has been eyeing BJJ star and rising MMA star Mackenzie Dern for a potential contract.
In a recent interview with TMZ, Dana White stated:
“WE’VE BEEN CHECKING HER OUT. SHE’S A LITTLE BAD ASS,” UFC PRESIDENT DANA WHITE TOLD TMZ.COM.
Dana was quick to stop any early comparisons of Mackenzie to former women’s bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey.
“YOU NEVER KNOW HOW GOOD SOMEBODY’S GOING TO BE UNTIL THEY GET IN THERE AND START FIGHTING THE BEST IN THE WORLD,” WHITE SAID ABOUT DERN.
“OBVIOUSLY, SHE HAS A LOT OF POTENTIAL, BUT WILL SHE BE ANOTHER RONDA [ROUSEY]? I DON’T KNOW.”
