Mackenzie Dern Misses Weight; UFC 224 Fight vs. Amanda Cooper Will Proceed

UFC 224 Live Stream Dern

Dern hit the scale at 123 pounds, well over the 116 pound limit for a non-title, strawweight bout.

This is exactly where Cooper didn't want to be in this fight and Dern quickly makes her pay with a rear-naked choke that soon forces the tapout at 2.27mins of the first round. "I don't want that to happen again". But there was a point where the weight wasn't going away any more.

As this is being written, Dern has not publicly commented on what led to her disastrous weight-cut. "For me it was a mistake and I'm going to work with the UFC to make sure it never happens again".

More than anything, Dern says she's just as disappointed in herself as anybody else over her latest weight cutting disaster.


Would you like to see submission specialist Mackenzie Dern move up to flyweight (125-pounds) for next octagon appearance?

This is the third time Dern has missed weight in her MMA career, she came in heavy for two fights in Legacy prior to joining the UFC.

"My manager said the UFC wants me to move up in weight". "On Friday, [UFC matchmaker] Mick [Maynard] called me and said we have in institute here in Vegas and we're going to invest in you, we want you here, we're going to work with you so I said I'm going to work with you guys". I can't lose that opportunity to get all that out from this organization which is so big and help me make weight. However, Dern badly missed weight, weighing in seven pounds over the limit. I went and ran and everything came off, so it's flawless.' ...

"I've always wanted to fight here in Brazil", she said.
