Jiu-jitsu ace Mackenzie Dern (7-0 MMA) kept her flawless mixed martials arts record intact at last night's UFC 224 event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil by scoring a first-round subsmission victory over Amanda Cooper. Considering Cooper is now essentially a "strawweight vs flyweight", it's no wonder Cooper is perturbed with Dern's extra 7.4 pounds. And the fact I was able to do it before, I thought I knew what I was doing. They told me even without a fight, they're going to make me make weight and they're going to stay on me, but that's what I need.
As this is being written, Dern has not publicly commented on what led to her disastrous weight-cut.
Cooper and Dern are scheduled to meet on the main card of Saturday's PPV event.
