Dern, 27, suffered the first loss of her career in her last fight to Amanda Ribas at UFC on ESPN+ 19 last October. Dern fought a quick four months after giving birth to her daughter Moa, but Ribas outstruck her on the feet. Saturday will show if Dern has made improvements to her standup game.
The soft-spoken Cifers, 27, had a two fight win streak stopped by Angela Hill at UFC on ESPN+ 24 in January.
Happy Fight Night! What a card! See y’all in 2 weeks! #UFC249
