One of the sport’s brightest prospects has taken the next step in her MMA career.

Decorated jiu-jitsu champion Mackenzie Dern announced Monday on The MMA Hour that she has signed a multi-fight deal with all-female promotion Invicta FC.

Dern said Monday that her Invicta FC debut will be on Dec. 8 in a strawweight bout against one-time title challenger Kaline Medeiros.

it's good that she is not coming to the ufc just yet, better to get more experience then make the jump. She could definitely be champ one day with her grappling alone

She said she’s looking at her next fight after this to be in the UFC.

Seeing that this is a strawweight bout, she's probably just stopping at Invicta to see if she can make the weight or if she should stay at flyweight before jumping to the UFC.

It's better to miss weight at a smaller organization than missing weight in the UFC.
