UFC’s Mackenzie Dern became a mom

Prospective 26-year-old strawweight fighter Mackenzie Dern (7-0) has become a mom. 

Early this year Mackenzie Dern announced a break from fighting because of her pregnancy. Today, in her Instagram Dern told the world that her baby girl Moa was born on June 9. 

“Our daughter, Moa, is here!” Dern wrote. “June 9th at 8:25pm! A little late, stubborn, american/brazilian, beautiful, perfect, God’s gift and our family’s biggest pride! Delivery was smooth and I had the most important people by my side! Welcome here my baby girl! We love you so much!” 

Announcing her pregnancy in February, Mackenzie Dern said she was going to come back to the Octagon by the end of the year. One of the most talented grapplers in the world, Dern made her UFC debut last March, defeating Ashley Yoder by split decision. Two months after that she had another UFC fight in which she made Amanda Cooper submit by a rear-naked choke.
