She’s gotten on heck of a promotional push, but Mackenzie Dern couldn’t be bothered to make the strawweight limit for her UFC 224 bout against Amanda Cooper, missing the mark by about seven cheesecakes.
Maybe that weight advantage translated into a power advantage.
As she’s won’t to do, Dern came out flinging heavy leather, much the way really good jiu-jitsu players do to make up for their lack of deep striking skills. Cooper obliged her, firing back, and for a couple minutes, they dinged each other up a little. But then Dern landed big, and when Cooper fell to the canvas, she’s was tapping to a rear naked choke soon after.

Dern. Please take this sport seriously. We need heroes, not fatties.
