Dern had her moments, notably in the second round when she managed to drag Rodriguez to the mat with a missed hip throw. Though she was on bottom, Dern quickly reversed Rodriguez flowing from a north-south position to side control to a crucifix and, finally, to full mount where she delivered some strong ground and pound. But the Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion was unable to finish it and Rodriguez took control in the remaining rounds keeping most of the fight standing while mixing her punches and kicks well. When Dern did manage to force her way inside, Rodriguez met her with hard knees to the body. It was enough to claim the decision as Rodriguez moves to 15-1-2 while Dern falls to 11-2.
