MMA H.E.A.T.’s Wade Eck was at Hinoki And The Bird in Century City, Los Angeles, where undefeated women’s strawweight contender Mackenzie Dern (6-0) answered questions from the media. Mackenzie talks about leaving the MMA Lab in Phoenix, training in Southern California, fighting Amanda Cooper in Brazil at UFC 224, having her father Wellington Leal “Megaton” Dias be in attendance to watch her fight for the first time, why she felt more pressure competing in jiu jitsu than she does MMA, how she can contribute to women’s MMA like Ronda Rousey + more!

  1. This is a good matchup given that their holes are in each other's strengths, if you will. With that being said, I do believe Mackenzie will pull off the submission victory given that Cooper isn't the most "seasoned" striker. Interesting how she fell out with the MMA Lab due to issues over commitment.

  2. We need the 360 VR version of this so we can see if Wade wore booty shorts. J/k. Another great interview and props to Wade asking the tough question about what happened with the MMA Lab.
