UFC FIGHT NIGHT: MACKENZIE DERN VS MARINA RODRIGUEZ also known as UFC Vegas 39 aired live in Asia on Sunday, October 10 from UFC APEX in Las Vegas. Along with the main event, it was contenders in the women's divisions who shined with upsets and highlight-reel finishes.

Marina Rodriguez gets a huge win

A strawweight battle between title hopefuls Mackenzie Dern and Marina Rodriguez defined the saying "styles make fights". Dern, one of the greatest Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioners in MMA, showed off her grappling acumen when she was able to get it to the canvas. However, Rodriguez prevented it from going there in most rounds, and pieced up Dern with brilliant striking combinations to earn the unanimous decision. Rodriguez said,

"There was never a point where she was close to a submission... I had to pace myself, that was the plan for it. I've been ready to fight for a title since we started this thing."

Randy Brown takes home the co-main event

In the co-main event, Randy Brown and Jared Gooden entertained with a back-and-forth affair that was fueled with animosity and determination. Gooden was able to do damage with calf kicks, but Brown endured and kept up his onslaught. The bout went to the judges who scored in Brown's favor and he said,

"Shout out to my dad who is watching me live in the UFC for the first time, I love you... I know he's proud of me, too... Again, every time I get the mic, I'm going to big up Jamaica."

On the main card, Mariya Agapova and Sabina Mazo presented a nail-biting match. Agapova methodically mounted a good offense with strikes, and in the third round she was able to knock down Mazo. Smartly, Agapova jumped on her and finished it with a rear naked choke submission.

On the prelims, two bouts heralded up and comers to watch for. Alexandr Romanov remained undefeated with a dominant performance against Jared Vanderaa, finishing with a TKO in the second round. Loopy Gonzalez made herself another contender in the women's strawweight division with her aggressive work against Silvana Gomez, winning with an armbar submission in round two.
