The upcoming UFC Fight Night event in May just got more exciting with the addition of a strawweight showdown featuring Mackenzie Dern and Angela Hill.
According to a report by MMA Junkie, Mackenzie Dern is set to make her return to the octagon against Angela Hill at a UFC Fight Night event scheduled for May 13th. At this time, the location and venue for the upcoming event have yet to be confirmed. However, it’s worth mentioning that the UFC usually selects the UFC APEX in Las Vegas as the host venue for their Fight Night events.
Dern and Hill Set to Bring the Heat at UFC Fight Night
Mackenzie Dern is on a mission to redeem herself after suffering a majority decision loss to Yan Xiaonan in her last fight back in October. Prior to that, she secured a split-decision victory over Tecia Torres at UFC 273.
Dern has been making waves in the strawweight division, winning five of her last seven fights, including three armbar submissions against Nina Nunes, Randa Markos, and Hannah Cifers. Her impressive performances have catapulted her to become one of the most recognizable names in the division.
Angela Hill, who will be facing Mackenzie Dern at the upcoming UFC Fight Night event on May 13th, is eager to secure her spot in the rankings after back-to-back victories over Loopy Godinez and Emily Ducote. With her sights set on climbing up the ladder, Hill is expected to bring her A-game to the octagon.
What’s more impressive is that the 38-year-old fighter is set to make history by tying Jessica Andrade for the most fights by any female in UFC history. This will mark Hill’s 23rd appearance in the octagon, a testament to her longevity and dedication to the sport.
The upcoming UFC event scheduled for May 13th has announced its latest lineup, which includes:
- Anthony Smith vs. Johnny Walker
- Jailton Almeida vs. Jairzinho Rozenstruik
