Mackenzie Dern Runs Through Amanda Cooper In Grudge Match


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.

Despite the weigh-in slip-up by Dern, she and Cooper will still be part of a main card that will be main-evented by Amanda Nunes defending her bantamweight title against Raquel Pennington. It was always a scrap that looked like it should be a good fight. Dern followed up shortly afterward with another big right hand, dropping Cooper.

As well as pose for a super-hot photo, Kendall also opened up about her anxiety in an interview for the publication. The model also added that her relationship with Kylie has strengthened with Stormi's birth.

What happened in the end, however? A couple of straight punches get through for Cooper. And then just like that - a giant shot connected by Dern, and Cooper was in trouble! Swarming in, Dern was able to get full mount before landing a barrage of elbows and strikes. In went the rear-naked choke, and Dern earned the win! The jujitsu grappler made weight for her first bout, a split-decision strawweight win over Ashley Yoder at UFC 222 in March, but she missed weight in two fights under the Legacy banner in October 2016 and March 2017. Cooper was submitted in all three of her losses, making the fight with Dern, a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu a bad fit for Cooper.
