Twitter Reacts To Mackenzie Dern’s Massive Weight Miss For UFC 224

Twitter Reacts To Mackenzie Dern’s Massive Weight Miss For UFC 224

A Brazilian submission specialist Mackenzie Dern made headlines for the wrong reason as she failed to make weight for her scheduled bout against Amanda Cooper at UFC 224. Dern stepped onto the scale and was closer to the flyweight limit than strawweight which is the 116-pound. She came at whopping 123 pounds, seven pounds over the non-title limit for the weight class.

Her opponent Cooper tipped the scale at 116 lbs. Dern would be fined 30 percent of her show money which will go to Cooper and will also be exempt from winning any performance bonuses. Amanda Cooper agreed to fight which will go down at catchweight.

Check out MMA community reacts to Dern’s coming at 123 pounds:

Cooper wasn’t pleased, however, calling her opponent a “disgrace” on Twitter:

This will be Dern’s second outing in UFC Octagon. The Brazilian grappler made weight for her first bout, where she earns a split-decision strawweight win over Ashley Yoder at UFC 222, but she missed weight in two fights under the Legacy banner back in October 2016 and March 2017.

Do you think with the botched weight cut, Dern will able to pick a win over Cooper?
