Cooper Says Dern Is A “Disgrace”, But Will Take Catchweight Fight

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

One of the most hyped prospects in the UFC; Mackenzie Dern, scored an emphatic first round submission victory over opponent Amanda Cooper at UFC 224 in Brazil.

Do you think Mackenzie Dern should be given another shot to fight at strawweight or should the UFC force her to move to flyweight for her next fight? "I knew that Brazil would support me". Later that morning, all fighters make weight except for Mackenzie Dern.

As this is being written, Dern has not publicly commented on what led to her disastrous weight-cut.

Dern remains unbeaten in her career improved to 7-0, while Cooper falls to 1-2 in her past three outings. A lot of things have been happening, it's not an excuse. But there was a point where the weight wasn't going away any more.

The crestfallen Swansea players were in marked contrast to Southampton's jubilant celebrations at the final whistle. This was a man who broke down barriers in terms of prejudice with his grace, poise and skill on the pitch.

"I'm ashamed of that and I don't want it to happen again ... but it's a mistake". I didn't feel pressure, I just got so emotional with everything that happened.

However, Cooper insisted on taking the fight, but called Dern "unprofessional" for missing weight by that much.

"My manager said that the UFC would want me to move up in weight".

Dern did make it clear that she plans on never letting this happen again, and a way of making sure it does not is to go to the UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas, Nevada. I went and ran and everything came off, so it's ideal.' ... Not that it's not important to me, but I believe in what they're offering me. "I can't lose that opportunity to get all this help from this organization that is so big and it's going to help me make weight".
