    Is there even a possibility she was bullied out of her accent while going back and forwards to Brazil as a child? Not really educated, just curious.

    It's pathetic that so many bashers are here to talk about Mackenzie's English when this woman is such a skilled combat athlete. I bet that before you even finish your perfectly-accented English word, Mackenzie will have submitted you. Such losers!

  • Drew

    She can’t be serious. Why is she still pulling this fake accent BS?! Does she think it gives her some sort of advantage in any way, shape or form?! It’s the opposite of endearing and insulting to fans’ intelligence. I mean I guess she’s not hurting anyone, but still. It’s gross.

    • Drew

      @Nick Rodriguez well either way, why even fake an accent in the first place? She could’ve been playful with the fans and media saying “hey check out my impression of (blank) accent”. Instead she has to suddenly act like she’s born and raised in a certain country because she’s got a little of that blood in her 🤷‍♀️

    • Nick Rodriguez

      Is it really a Brazilian accent? I'm brazilian and her accent seems to be American all the way, she is great at her brazilian accent speaking portuguese and speaking English with an American accent

  • Davi Medeiros
    Davi Medeiros

    Translation of the portuguese part: - Mackenzie, that´s your first main event in the ufc, after a long time, a long career, how important is that, what´s the feeling right now, and how would you describe this moment? - I think is the recognition of all the work and effort i´ve been putting, and all of that is paying dividends now, but it´s only the beginning, not that i am not happy, of course i´m happy, but i think i was deserving a moment like that it´s been some time, you know? But the fact that i am here, the feeling is: 'i am here´, the moment finnaly arrived you know, after my pregnancy, i think everybody knows that i am better than ever, but as i said it´s only the beggining, i am seen this moment as an opportunity to show if i have the skills to sell fights, if i can show my skills against a striker, i think that´s marina´s second main event, so she´s a very experencied girl, even though i am in front of her in the rankings, she has more wins than i have, she has more fights than i have and she knocked out the only girl that ever beated me in the mma (Amanda Ribas), so this fight is very important to me, to be in the main event, to really show that evolved a lot and i am ready for a title shot. - About the style battle, even the Ufc is selling this fight as a duel between a striker and a grapler, this profile of opponent interests you? Or you would prefer to fight against some girl that would accept the groung game better? -This marina fight, i think the only that concerns me a bit is her reach, that way she moves in the octagon, she has a good sense of distance and her height, due to the fact that i am little shorter, for me i am always thinking: ´it´s hard to fight against someone taller' but i fought against Ashley Yoder, Amanda Ribas who were also taller than me, so i am kinda used to fight against girls taller than me. But looking now to all the fights have made Marina, i think her weakest point is the ground game, so i am way more happy to fight against some girl like her, that struggles a bit when they a are in the ground, rather than a girl like Rose or Virna that knows a lot about grappling, that has a good defense so, don´t get so scared when they are in the ground, you know? So i liked this fight stylistic, and an opportunity for me to show the efficiency of the bjj. - We know this is mma, everybody trains a bit of everything, but if i asked you, do you think you have more chances with her in the striking or she has more chances in the ground with you? - I think she has more chance in the ground with me, but not in a succesful way, i think it's easier that i can keep her in the ground, than she can keep me in the strinking, i have no problems trading shots with her in the striking. Even in her last fight against karate hottie, michelle took her down, even though she is a karate fighter. And it was only the only round michelle won in that fight, because she took her down. Due to this agressive style that marina has, of trying to get closer and be more agressive, it will make it easier for me to take this fight to the ground, and she never fought against a grappler like me you know, she fought agains Esparza, who is a wrestler and like to do the ground and pound, you know, not a girl that is trying to gain positions to submit you. I know she has heavy hands, but i think even my striking is a set up for me going to the ground. - October, it´s a special month for the brazilian fans, there will be at least one brazilian in every main event during this month, started last week, was a very antecipatting fight, but end up being kinda boring fight. was expected to be very agressive, but ended up lacking on this aspect, do you think there is a possibility that this fight on saturday won´t be agressive and it will frustrate the fans again? - Of course not, i like marreta, i like walker, i am friends with them, but me as an athlete, after seen that fight that they were respecting each other too much, 'i was like there is no way our fight can be worse than this one' (laughs). I always like to walk on, never back. I think marina has a tendence to starts slowly, because i think she is studying her opponents, looking for opportunities, and from the second round on is pure pressure, so i think this fight will be a good fight, she trying to outstrike me and i trying to finish her. - Last one for me guys, if you get a win over marina on saturday, you currently top 5, if you beat her, you think it's time to strat dreaming about the belt and a possible title fight? - Depending on how this fight works out. maybe, of course i need to win first, but if a put a performance of the night fight, i could possibly pass carla esparza in the line, because she even turned me down, i konow she has 5 victories, but if i win i will bw with 5 victories as well so, and she had a very close fight agaibst marina, you know. If i go in there and finish marina in unbelivable fassion, making zero mistakes, i would deserve. But if the winner of the rose- weili fight wants to wait a lot for another fight, i would like to fight again, to keep this rhytm and this momentum. If i dont put on a convincing perfomance, there is other girls in fornt of me that i coulf fight, joanna, carla, xianon. - Message for the brazilian fans - Hello galera do brasil (brazilian people), i hope you guys support me on saturday and you can expect and show on saturday. see you guys there!

    I'm born and raised in England, learned Portuguese when I was 21, now, at 32, I have a Brazilian wife and child, and we speak Portuguese. After coming back from Brazil for a few years, I didn't have a Brazilian accent (still can't really do one in English) but the way I speak English is definitely different than after I've been back in England for a while. The way they speak, the cadence, everything is different. They use so much mouth. If one side of my family were Brazilian, and I was raised bilingual, and then I spent 100% of my time speaking Portuguese, I'd also definitely speak weirdly in English, regardless of my previous natural voice. I also sometimes totally forget the words in English, and the Portuguese word is immediately there, even though for 21 years I only spoke English. Just saying!

      @Dr Thuganomics I thought it was obvious that the translator was there to translate when she would be speaking Portuguese, for the people at home who don’t speak it to understand her. I think that every time someone brings up the translator. In fact, didn’t he not even translate en->pt for her?

  • Ujcify

    In my opinion , dern has the perfect fighting style , she is constantly evolving and every time she steps into the octogon she looks ready , she is one of those fighters that you want to follow and watch , Dern also has nice armpits and I want to lube them up and do the needful and then finish on her feet , her grappling is top notch and her striking is good enough to knock anyone out! Wish her all the best for the upcoming fight.

  • MrMayki89

    I don't know why people are giving her shit for her accent. If she uses mostly Portuguese in her daily life it's quite understandable that she may have gotten a bit rusty with her English. It's not that uncommon. I used to live abroad a few years mostly using English and when I was speaking with my mates back home I sometimes struggled to remember certain words. Go easy people. At least she knows more than one language. How many of you linguistic experts out there can say the same? ;)

    Marina Rodrigues is very high level striker, she has feints and deceptions, if Mackenzie is looking past her then its a big mistake. For me its actually Marina who is the favourite and Mackenzie is an underdog.

    • faizan khan
      faizan khan

      @Owen Rigby yes. She's struggled with her striking very badly. Also when Marina survived the second round, that probably took gas out of Dern, because after that she was completely exhausted and looked out of sorts. On the other hand Marina got confident.

    • Owen Rigby
      Owen Rigby

      @faizan khan Yep. Mackenzie has quite a few areas to work and improve on, while Marina appears more ready to be a title contender. Another win for Marina and she deserves a title shot.

      faizan khan

      @Owen Rigby I think you got the answers to all your questions. 😃

      @faizan khan We will have our questions answered soon enough. But I'd like to think that Mackenzie Dern has a chin on her.

    • faizan khan
      faizan khan

      @Owen Rigby a punch is okay but can she endure a barage of punches? if you see Marina's fight against Michelle Waterson who herself is a very high level striker and highly durable. She completely outclassed her. Marina is very technical and knows how to keep range. But yes her takedown defense is questionable. I beleive if the fight finishes early it'll be in Marina's favour but the longer it goes it'll benefit Mackenzie. I like Mackenzie and I wanr her to win because I think she's a new Star in the making but this fight is not easy. Marina is a stiff challenge. She has only one loss.

    Just because she was born and raised in the States doesn't mean her parents spoke fluent English and/or in American accent around her at home. Look at Izzy and Usman - they switch accents from Western English to Nigerian Pidgin. It's normal. Who care if she wants to go down her Brazilian roots with the accent.
