Miesha Tate calls out Mackenzie Dern
After scoring a win over Jessica Eye at Submission Underground 2 event, „Cupcake“ decided to move a step further and in her next fight she wants to test her skills against one of the best female grapplers in the world, Mackenzie Dern.
“I would love to compete against Mackenzie [Dern], I know that she’s credentialed as one of the best,” Tate said. “So, I’d like to test myself. Jessica [Eye] is obviously I tough opponent, she’s a test in herself, but I’d really like to venture into the grappling world more,” said Tate to BJJEE.
Dern is international BJJ and ADCC champion in -59 division. This 23 year old fighter also started to fight in MMA this year scoring two wing at Legacy FC.
On the other hand, last month Tate retried from her MMA career after disappointing defeat to Raquel Pennington at UFC 205 in New York.
