UFC Fighters React To Mackenzie Dern’s Missed Weight

Mackenzie Dern is set to face off in her sophomore octagon performance this weekend. Following the announcement that the match would be at catchweight due to Dern missing her mark on the scales, fighters have now come forward with their thoughts on the matter.

Mackenzie Dern first faced off inside the octagon against Ashley Yoder, earning a split decision victory over the fighter. While Dern has earned an undefeated record of 6-0 in her mixed martial arts career, the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu phenom has also managed to miss weight for multiple fights already.

While Dern made weight for her octagon debut, the fighter missed the mark when hitting the scaled more than once in her first five bouts. Most recently, Dern missed weight by a massive total of seven pounds.

For her second octagon performance, Dern is set to face off against Amanda Cooper at UFC 224. With the live pay-per-view event set to go down May 12, the event’s official weigh-ins were held today, May 11.

Dern weighed in at a total of 123 pounds. Cooper has since accepted a catchweight match against the fighter, with Dern being fined 30 percent of her fight purse for the match up.
