‘Jiu-Jitsu Empress’ Mackenzie Dunn (30, USA) overcomes the shock of divorce and fights Angela Hill (38, USA) in the UFC main event.
Dawn, ranked 8th in the UFC strawweight rankings, will take part in the main event of ‘UFC Fight Night: Dawn vs. Hill’ held at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA on the 21st (hereinafter Korean time). The opponent is 14th place Hill.
After winning the Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) and the World Jiu-Jitsu Championships (IBJJF), Dunn has had a major crisis in his recent personal life. She divorced after 3 years of marriage.
But even more difficult than that was after her divorce. Dunn is in and out of the court from time to time due to custody and child support issues.
Regarding this, Dunn said at Media Day held on the 18th, “I suffered from related problems throughout the camp. Divorce is really crazy,” he said, arousing regret.
To make matters worse, Dunn was away for a month to prepare for Luke Rockhold’s bare-knuckle (BKFC) match by head coach Jason Parillo.
I also broke up with the manager I had been with for a long time. In other words, the custody issues after the divorce and the absence of a coach and manager overlapped.
The recent bad things that happened rather led to the aggression inside Dawn. Dunn said, “With his recent personal life and various problems, he will be very aggressive in this match.”
He also ignited his will to win, saying, “I respect Angela, and I have no personal feelings for her, but she will definitely win this match.”메이저놀이터
Dawn has been focusing on submitting opponents using his Jiu-Jitsu skills. However, submissions did not come out so easily in matches against top players. Also, excessive attack attempts used to create gaps for the opponent to escape from the ground.
Regarding this, Dunn said, “This camp was strategic, and I came to training with a fighting vision that I had never had before.” “You just have to win the round. If you win every round, you win the match.”
Against Dawn, Hill is aiming for a picturesque counter punch. Hill said, “There is a lot I can do when Dunn moves forward. He comes in defenseless with his chin up,” he said. “I can attack his weakness, but Dunn will have little chance of attacking me.”
The UFC Fight Night: Dawn vs. Hill main card, which predicts a great match, will be broadcast live on TVING and tvN SPORTS from 8:00 am on the 21st.
