Early Years & Family Life

Mackenzie Lynne Dern was born on March 24th 1993 in Phoenix, Arizona, United States. Her parents are both Brazilian immigrants, who moved to the US looking for a better life.

Both her perants are also Brazilian jujitsu phenomes in their own right. Her mother, Luciana “Luka” Tavares Dias is one of the most accomplished Brazilian jiu jitsu black belts ever to compete at the highest level, and her father, Wellington Leal Dias Santos, who was her mother’s trainer, is also a 7th degree coral belt of the Gracie Humaitá jiu-jitsu association under Royler Gracie.

He has also made his mark on the world jujitsu scene. He compete and medalled in the pan America, European, worlds, ADCC, the US national championships, and the Rickson Gracie international championships. Santos was also crowned the Rio de Janeiro state champion, which is just about the most diffecult championship to win in the country, due to Rio being a BJJ hub.

He is the only person ever to compete in all 24 of the Brazilian jujitsu World Championships since its inception in 1996.

Wellington is also a world class judo practitioner. His nickname is Megaton, and he gained this nickname due to, when he was competing in judo, he used to launch his Competition through the air which resembled a nuclear blast.

With parents like these it’s not difficult to see how she has become one of the best female martial artists in the world.

She Started Training Very Young

At three years old young Mackenzie started her jujitsu training, showing great promise even back then. With world class parents training her from such a young age it wasn’t long before she started competing winning many youth titles along the way. When she was only 14 it was clear that she was too much for competitors of her own age so she started competing at the adult level.

Jiu Jitsu Career

She had great success from the start, winning the World Championships at every level, even becoming champion at black belt level. She graduated to the black belt level just before her 20th birthday, when she was awarded this honor by her father. Dern is also the only female jiu jitsu competitor to win gold medals at all of the five highest-ranking IBJJF championships. She even managed to defeat the 260-pound behemoth, which is Gabby Garcia. When she faced Garcia she was giving away well over 100 pounds in weight.
