Twitter Reacts To Mackenzie Dern's Massive Weight Miss For UFC 224

Mackenzie Dern Amanda Cooper

Today's UFC 224 early weigh-ins saw a significant amount of drama when touted women's strawweight Mackenzie Dern missed weight by an astonishing seven pounds for her main card bout against Amanda Bobby Cooper at tomorrow's pay-per-view event from Rio. But even with such drastic weight gap, Dern's opponent, Amanda Cooper, will still accept the fight.

Dern hit the scale at 123 pounds, well over the 116 pound limit for a non-title, strawweight bout. Dern would be fined 30 percent of her show money which will go to Cooper and will also be exempt from winning any performance bonuses. She hasn't been reluctant to question her opponent leading up to the fight, and that didn't stop after the weigh-in incident.

The 25-year-old Dern is a rising star in UFC with a flawless professional record of 6-0.

Cooper was not pleased to find out about Dern's weight troubles and took to Twitter to air her frustrations.

According to MMA Junkie's Mike Bohn, Dern is the 11th UFC fighter to miss weight this year and her overage is the largest of the group, with all but one of the others coming in less than four pounds overweight.

Cooper was already prepared for the possibility of Dern missing weight due to weight cutting history.
