UFC on ESPN 9: Mackenzie Dern meets Hannah Cifers

Both fighters looking to send a rankings message

UFC strawweights Mackenzie Dern (8-1-0) and American Hannah Cifers (10-4-0) are looking to reclaim some momentum at UFC on ESPN 9.

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.

UFC on ESPN 9 is scheduled to take place Saturday May 30 at the APEX One in Las Vegas. The card is expected to air on ESPN and live stream on ESPN+. Scheduled bouts include:

KATLYN CHOOKAGIAN (13-3-0) VS. ANTONINA SHEVCHENKO (8-1-0)
