UFC News: Yan Xiaonan outpoints Mackenzie Dern at UFC Fight Night

Yan Xiaonan defeated Laura Dern by majority decision at the main event of UFC Fight Night on Saturday night in Las Vegas.

Xiaonan (16-3, 1 NC) took the cards 48-47, 48-47 with the third ending in a tie, 47-47. Dern was awarded a 10-8 fifth round after taking down Xiaonan to the mat early in the round.

Xiaonan ended a two-fight skid.

“I know her jiu-jitsu is amazing,” Yan said through an interpreter. “She’s a black belt. I’m a white belt. So I knew what I should expect in this fight. But I trained so hard — four times, five times on grappling during this camp — so I knew I could do this.”

Dern drops to 12-3.
