Dern will now be fined 30 percent of her show money (10 by CABMMA, 20 percent by the UFC), which will go directly to Dern, who is ready for a fight. She had one fight at flyweight before signing with the UFC and returning to strawweight.

Nunes (15-4) enters the bout on the heels of a six-fight winning streak that includes the likes of Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, and Valentina Shevchenko, but hasn't set foot in the Octagon since September 2017. I told my coaches days ago that if she didn't make weight I wanted the fight.

Meanwhile, the main event for Saturday is on.
