Amanda Cooper has branded Mackenzie Dern as a “disgrace to all professionals” after she missed weight for the pair’s strawweight contest scheduled to take place at tomorrow’s UFC 224 event.
Cooper (3-3) was successful in her attempt to make weight, hitting the scales at 116-pounds. However, Dern (6-0) decided to weigh in as a flyweight, coming in at 123-pounds.
The 26-year-old, also known as “ABC”, reacted to the news that her opponent missed weight by almost an entire weight-class.
“Not shocked Mackenzie Dern missed weight, but 7.4lbs over is a disgrace to all professionals. She’s not getting out of this fight that easy. Fight is still on. ABC Nation get ready. Strawweight vs. flyweight tomorrow night in Brazil.” Cooper wrote on her social media pages.
UFC 224 takes place this Saturday 12 May from the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The main card featuring Dern vs. Cooper will be aired live on pay-per-view from 10pm EST.
