Mackenzie Dern net worth: How much does she make per fight?


How much money does strawweight contender Mackenzie Dern make?

The UFC is back with another UFC APEX card live from Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, May 20. The oftentimes criticised 'mini' Octagon will host a tremendous strawweight main event with both fighters looking to further ascend up the competitive 115-pound rankings.

UFC veteran Angela Hill (15-12) takes on the extremely popular Mackenzie Dern (12-3) in a ranked vs. ranked matchup. For Dern, this is a chance to prove to the world that she is the real deal we all thought she'd be when she entered the UFC.

Despite being one of the most recognizable strawweights in MMA (even Mark Zuckerberg seems to be a fan), Dern has been up and down in her UFC career. Despite her respectable 7-3 promotional record, Dern has struggled to pick up wins against top contenders that would push her into the title picture.

She definitely needs a win when she meets Hill but even though she's yet to fight the crème de la crème of the strawweight division, Dern has amassed an impressive amount of money throughout her combat sports career.

According to her own website, Dern is sponsored by the likes of War Tribe, Zebra, Damage Control, and MyProtien to name a few. Although the amount of money she makes from each company is unknown, it is fair to assume that they all contributed to the $1 million dollar net worth the No. 8 strawweight contender boasts.
