Who is mystery UFC fighter helping train Amanda Cooper for Ashley Yoder?

Michigan-based MMA camp Team Scorpion Fighting Systems is sparking intrigue based on a social media post.

The camp is known for being the home base of UFC Strawweight Amanda Bobby Cooper. Cooper (3-4) is coming off of a high profile loss to Mackenzie Dern, and her next fight is against another skilled BJJ practioner, Ashley “Spider Monkey” Yoder.

Given that all of Cooper’s professional losses have been by submission (to Aspen Ladd, Tatiana Suarez, and Cynthia Calvillo and Mackenzie Dern), it seems that her camp is taking the step of bringing in some expert assistance before the Yoder fight. See the Facebook post below:

One can assume that it will be a fighter skilled on the ground to help the BJJ Blue Belt sharpen her skills.

Who do you think it is? One of her former opponents? Or someone else like Andrea “KGB” Lee?
