Mackenzie Dern set to face Jessica Andrade at UFC 295

The UFC 295 is set to take place on November 11 at the iconic Madison Square Garden and is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated moments in the MMA calendar. Headlining this event will be a high-stakes heavyweight title clash between the renowned Jon Jones and the formidable Stipe Miocic.

But another compelling matchup has just been announced to grace the card, adding even more excitement to the mix. It is a thrilling strawweight contest between Mackenzie Dern and Jessica Andrade.

Ranked at number eight on the ladder in the fiercely competitive 115 lbs. division, Mackenzie Dern is gearing up for a crucial showdown. Fresh off a remarkable ‘Performance of the Night’ decision victory over Angela Hill, Dern has demonstrated her resilience by bouncing back from a previous majority decision loss against Yan Xiaonan.

Though her recent record stands at 2-2 over the last four bouts, she was riding a remarkable four-bout winning streak prior to this. This streak included three dominant first-round finishes, showcasing her ability in the cage.

As the date of the UFC 295 event draws nearer, all eyes will be on Mackenzie Dern as she sets her sights on a triumphant victory against the former champion in the grand arena of combat sports this coming November.

On the other side of the octagon stands Jessica Andrade, a seasoned competitor who finds herself in a challenging phase of her career. Suffering three consecutive stoppage losses is undeniably a setback, yet these losses were against elite prospects in the division.

As she prepares to step into the cage against Mackenzie Dern, there’s a palpable sense of urgency for Andrade to prove herself and demonstrate that this challenging stretch is not the end of her journey. A victory against Dern would not only halt her losing streak but also serve as a testament to her resilience and determination in the face of adversity.

While the strawweight battle between Dern and Andrade steals much of the spotlight, UFC 295 promises additional fireworks with another thrilling matchup. Middleweight veterans Roman Dolidze and Derek Brunson are set to cross paths in a contest that is sure to have fans on the edge of their seats.

As the event’s buildup continues, it appears that the card has not been without its share of unexpected twists. Controversy surrounds Colby Covington’s claims that Jon Jones removed him and Leon Edwards from the event.
