Mackenzie Dern put forth a dominating performance Saturday, defeating Angela Hill by unanimous decision in the main event of their strawweight bout at UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas.

Dern did everything but knock out Hill, taking the cards 49-43, 49-44 and 49-44.

Dern had one knockdown, three takedowns and connected on 247 strikes — 126 significant strikes — to just 94 and 66 for Hill.

“We’ve all kinda fought almost everyone but I never fought an ex-champion and I feel like I could have that opportunity now,” Dern said afterward, saying she’d like to fight Rose Namajunas.

“I don’t know what Rose is up to, but if she’s interested in fighting, I’d like to fight Rose.”

Dern improved to 13-3 while Hill dropped to 15-13.
