UFC Star’s Provocative Beach Photos Go Viral

UFC Star’s Provocative Beach Photos Go Viral

The UFC is fresh off an incredible showing this past weekend.

At UFC 278, despite losing rounds 2, 3, 4 and most of 5, Leon Edwards shocked the world and pulled off a late victory over reigning champion Kamaru Usman.

The former pound-for-pound king seemed to have the bout locked up when Edwards popped him with a head kick out of nowhere – knocking him out cold. And thus, a new champion was born.

Edwards wasn’t the only star to come out of the weekend, though.

Grappling sensation Mackenzie Dern also made headlines over the past few days, albeit for a slightly different reason. She posted a beach day photo of herself that immediately blew up online:


Dern boasts more than 1 million followers on Instagram and routinely goes viral for posts like this:

Big picture, this isn’t an isolated incident. A number of prominent UFC personalities have set the internet ablaze for content like this as of late.

Between one female star recently walking around the airport and letting it all hang out and another going wild on a boat – it has been one thing after another.

And that’s to say nothing of Bellator’s standout female fighters, who also know how make an impression with their provocative photos.

Mixed martial arts as a whole has been growing a lot in recent years, and efforts by women like Dern are a big reason why.

They are legitimate stars both inside and outside of the cage.

Which one will ultimately go viral next? And for what?

Time will tell.
