The Mackenzie Dern vs Yan Xiaonan fight will take place at UFC Apex in Nevada.

How will the fight play out?

Is very hard to predict how this fight may play out, however, there are some things that we should be aware of for both fighters. Yan has more experience in fighting and she already proved that she is someone who has to be taken very seriously when it comes to striking. On another hand, Mackenzie is very good at fighting on the ground and not only she is very good in black jiu Jitsu she was the 2015 world champion in ADCC one of the most prominent tournaments for submission grappling in the world.

If I had to pick, I would choose Mackenzie Dern because I believe that she will want to grapple straight away, making it very difficult for Yan to attempt to escape from the ground floor. However, anything can happen in this sport.
