Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Women's Straight Talent Mackenzie Dern and Tekia Torres are set to fight ther weekend (Saturday, April 9, 2022) at UFC 273 inside the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.
Darn lost weight in two of her first three professional fights on the regional circuit. After losing weight in her second UFC fight, she faced significant criticism, losing weight for the third time in her six-career strawweight fight. Darn attributed the success to the birth of her daughter in June 2019.
Darn UFC is flirting in the women's straw top five. The win against Torres puts him behind Marina Rodriguez, a potential challenger for the winner of Rose Namajunas vs. Carla Esparza, assuming that the outcome of UFC 274 is not a fight of the Namajunas-Esparza trilogy. does. Darn is in no hurry and prefers to hone her skills before challenging for UFC Gold.
Torres, on the other hand, has a very complete MMA game that makes up most of its features. "Tiny Tornado" is a very accurate manicure, as Torres overcomes normal size / damage through nests in clusters, and has become one of the most effective offensive wrestlers in recent years.
One of the most important keys here for Torres is to be careful. Numerous opponents of Darn have denied taking down, then resorted to following him on the mat, and well ... it doesn't end well! Torres is a capable grappler, but there's absolutely no reason to engage with Darn on her canvas.
Ther is a very important strawweight competition.
Dern comes in at No. 5 in the competition, forcing him to defend her position against an enemy with two positions behind him. Although her overall game is still rough around the edges, Darn is such an expert grappler that she is an interesting threat to anyone in the division. If they can get back into the winning column, the dern are not far from the title shot, and that day will be an interesting match for Namajonas or Carla Esparza.
Torres, on the other hand, has done a great job recovering from her rough patch, but has not yet returned to the point where she is seen as a potential title threat. Defeating Angela Hill is a good thing in her hat, but Torres still needs a big name victory that proves she is an elite contender. Dern can only win, the push that breaks it into the top five and can even make it to the title eliminator.
At UFC 273, Mackenzie Dern and Tecia Torres will duel. Which woman will earn the victory?
