Mackens Semerzier is a American professional mixed martial arts fighter. He formerly fought in WEC's featherweight division. He currently competes in the UFC's featherweight division.

BioEdit

On January 11, 1999 Semerzier signed on to the U.S. Marines, where he would begin boxing training and then through a Marine Corps Martial Arts program, he learned other elements of the MMA game, which he would supplement with training at civilian gyms, most notably Linxx Academy in Virginia Beach, where he still trains and coaches. [1]

Professional career Edit

Semerzier stunned Wagnney Fabiano in his WEC debut at WEC 43, submitting the Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace in the first round. The submission win earned Upset of the Year honors for 2009 from Sherdog [1] [2]

Semerzier suffered his first career loss to Lithuanian grappler Deividas Taurosevičius at WEC 46.[3]

Semerzier was scheduled to face Anthony Morrison on April 24, 2010 at WEC 48.[4] He pulled out with an injury and he was replaced with undefeated wrestler Chad Mendes.

Semerzier went on to face Javier Vazquez at WEC 50 after recovering. Vazquez defeated Semerzier via rear-naked choke submission in the bout's second round.

Semerzier faced Cub Swanson at WEC 52. It would be the last WEC fight for both men, before the merger in which the WEC was absorbed into the UFC. Swanson defeated Semerzier via a controversial split decision. The fight was hailed as a possible Fight of the Year contender, but it was never officially nominated.

Semerzier faced The Ultimate Fighter veteran Alex Caceres in his UFC debut. Mackens defeated Caceres via first-round rear-naked choke submission.

Semerzier is next set welcome Brazilian newcomer Yuri Alcantara into the UFC's ranks at UFC 134 in Brazil.
