UFC 224 Results: Mackenzie Dern Submits Amanda Cooper in First Round

Mackenzie Dern missed weight Friday for her UFC 224 bout with Amanda Cooper, but the fight will still take place, according to Chamatkar Sandhu of MMAJunkie. But her victory massively overshadowed by her significant weigh-in failure, as Dern came in at 123 pounds, which is 7 pounds over the strawweight limit. Cooper, however, has agreed to proceed with the contest, but she will reportedly receive 30% of Dern's purse.

Mackenzie Dern on how ashamed she feels: "I'm ashamed of that; I don't want that to happen again". "But on Friday at 9AM, I wasn't losing any more weight".

As this is being written, Dern has not publicly commented on what led to her disastrous weight-cut. "The fact that I was able to do it before, I thought I knew what I was doing".

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

However, Cooper insisted on taking the fight, but called Dern "unprofessional" for missing weight by that much. Later that morning, all fighters make weight except for Mackenzie Dern. There are champions that are caught for drugs and cocaine and things like that. I'm going to take their help. For me it's a mistake.

It will be Dern's second fight in UFC. As seen on the main card of UFC 224 Dern picked up a first-round submission win over Cooper. "Since the first day I got here, the UFC was trying to help me and was saying I'd be able to make weight, and I did it last time". "The UFC is investing in me, and I'm going to work with them to not ever have that happen again".
