Not all mixed martial arts news is bad news, as this morning Mackenzie Dern gave everyone something to smile about, posting that she will be having a baby with her boyfriend, Wesley Santos.

On her Instagram Friday morning, the 25 year-old posted the good news: “God makes everything so perfect! I am so happy to be able to share this news! I’m going to be a Mom! I love so much our family and now I have one more HUGE motivation for inside and outside the ring!! Thank you God for this blessing @santoswesley.”

She did stress that her fighting career was not over, saying, “I also want to thank all my fans and sponsors for the support during all the life phases and I can’t wait to be back in the ring!”

Undefeated at 7-0 as a professional, Dern last competed at UFC 224 in May 2018, where she submitted Amanda Bobby Cooper in the first round with a rear-naked choke. Making her MMA debut in July 2016, this current layoff is already the longest of her short career, but for good reason. She will have someone else to fight for when she does make her eventual return to the sport.
