We’ve written a handful of ‘Sports Crush’ posts since we launched ‘America’s White Boy.’ We have spotlighted a few UFC women fighters (Paige VanZant, Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate). The response has been great, so we decided to profile another talented female fighter who is now with Invicta FC, the American/Brazilian Strawweight Mackenzie Dern.
Dern is the daughter of famous grappler Wellington ‘Megaton’ Dias. She has been training since she was 3 and was the #1 ranked female in jiu-jitsu when she decided to go into mixed-martial arts in 2015.
Dern is currently 4-0 and just signed a contract with Invicta FC and will make her strawweight debut against Kaline Medeiros. The 24-year old will no doubt find her way into the UFC soon.
See why we are crushing on MMA fighter Mackenzie Dern.
We’ve written a handful of ‘Sports Crush’ posts since we launched ‘America’s White Boy.’ We have spotlighted a few UFC women fighters (Paige VanZant, Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate). The response has been great, so we decided to profile another talented female fighter who is currently getting started in the UFC, ‘The Karate Hottie’ Michelle Waterson.
Waterson is the former Invicta FC Atomweight Champion and is currently fighting in the UFC Strawweight division. She has a record of 13-4 and comes from a karate background.
Waterson made her UFC debut on July 12th, 2015 after submitting Angela Magana via rear-naked choke. Her next fight is December 17th, when she faces our former ‘Sports Crush’, Paige VanZant.

We’ve written a handful of ‘Sports Crush’ posts since we launched ‘America’s White Boy.’ We have spotlighted a few UFC women fighters (Holly Holm, Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate). The response has been fantastic, so we decided to profile an up & coming fighter who is currently on fire in the UFC, Paige VanZant.
VanZant is a ranked in the Strawweight division in the UFC. She’s only 21 years old and has a 6-2 MMA record. After winning her first three fights in the UFC, she recently lost to Rose Namajunas on a UFC Fight Night in December.
She’s an extremely marketable commodity in the UFC due to her ability in the octagon and her beauty.
Once you see Paige VanZant, you’ll know why we’re crushing on her.
It’s safe to say that everyone saw Ronda Rousey’s 34-second knockout of Bethe Correia last weekend. It was nearly short enough to post the video on Instagram and Vine.
Rousey’s next opponent is Miesha Tate, the only fighter to take Rousey into the second round. MMA fight odds are still quite lopsided. Oddessa.com CEO and head oddsmaker Joey Oddessa has Rousey as a 11/1 favorite.
These fighters have already face each other twice before, once in Strikeforce and again in UFC, with Rousey winning both bouts. Tate did stretch the second fight into the second round after avoiding multiple armbar attempts from Rousey in the first round.
Do you think Tate could pull off what seems impossible right now, and defeat Rousey in their third fight?
Maxim recently released its annual “Hot 100” list for 2014. It’s filled with the usual suspects (Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, etc), but they have been known to add in a few up & coming starlets.
The most shocking omissions are from the television show Mad Men. I don’t know how Maxim failed to add Alison Brie, Christina Hendricks, Jessica Paré or January Jones to the 2014 Maxim Hot 100. Also, I was surprised Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland didn’t make the cut.
I did feel a tad old looking at this year’s list. There are many newcomers and one of the younger Kardashian girls appears on the list for the first time.
See who made Maxim’s Hot 100 list and let us know if you agree with them.
Our focus in this post is Holly “Preacher’s Daughter” Holm. She’s fairly new to MMA, but is an accomplished boxer and kickboxer. She’s held titles in both sports.
Holm recently improved her MMA record to 4-0 after kicking Allana Jones in the head and knocking her out in a Legacy FC 21 bout. If she keeps improving, UFC’s Dana White will definitely offer her a contract. She’s already proven herself outside the octagon in kickboxing.
Why are we crushing on Holly Holm? We’ve added some photos below and you will soon be enamored with the “Preacher’s Daughter” too. Continue reading →
