If you're a UFC fan, then there's a good chance you've probably heard of Mackenzie Dern. Whenever there's a female athlete that throngs of people find attractive, the mixed martial arts league is sure to heavily promote them because the fact is pretty people sell.

And while there are many different types of "pretty" there are just some universal features some people find attractive. But attraction is relative too, ie. you wouldn't expect a professional mixed martial artist to look like a '90s-era supermodel and vice versa.

And Dern, despite not being a world beater in the UFC women's strawweight division, receives a ton of attention every time she fights. That probably has to do with the fact that she's got a redoubtable Brazilian jiu-jitsu game. But it also probably has to do with the fact that lots of people are smitten with her looks.

Losses in Mixed Martial Arts are a bit more common on fighter's records than other sports, and a lot of that has to do with the fact that there are so many different disciplines and ways to approach combat in the cage as opposed to other combat sports.

While Dern is extremely talented on the ground and scramble where she can tie up fighters to implement her jiu-jitsu game, she does have difficulty in taking opponents down to secure a submission on them.

And while her stand-up game is developing, it becomes clear as fights draw out that she still has holes in her striking game. So as long as her opponents are well conditioned and can keep the fight off the ground and stay busier than Dern on the feet, it seems like they have a higher chance at carving out a path of victory against the Checkmat RVCA pugilist.

It should be noted that while Dern has three losses under the UFC banner, all of them came by way of unanimous decision, and she's never been thoroughly outclassed or definitively knocked out or submitted in any of her contests.

While Dern doesn't have anything lined up after her most recent loss (as of this writing) to Xiaonan Yan, it doesn't seem like her star has dimmed in the UFC, despite going 1-2 in her last three outings.
