At the main card of UFC Fight Night 161 which took place at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, MacKenzie Dern made her return back to the Octagon after a long hiatus of seventeen months.

Her return to the Octagon didn’t go as she had hoped as the Brazilian lost via unanimous decision to Amanda Ribas.

Dern got outclasses throughout the fight but it should be noted that she gave birth to her baby just four months ago and had a three-month training camp on top of that. She felt ready to take the fight and made weight for it as well.
