Dern hit the scale at 123 pounds, well over the 116 pound limit for a non-title, strawweight bout.

Those ugly numbers spawmed a ton of backlash for Dern on social media, as a number of fighters including her UFC 224 Amanda Cooper took to social media to voice their displeasure with Dern's unprofessionalism.

She made weight prior to her split decision victory over Ashley Yoder in her UFC debut in March.

Mackenzie Dern was fined 30% of her fight purse for her botched weight cut, 20% of which will go to her opponent Amanda Cooper. The win improved Cooper's record to 4-3 with one knockout and one submission. Dern redeemed herself in a big way Saturday night in Brazil. "When my coach came in and told me she wasn't even remotely close, all I asked was, what do I have to do to make the fight happen; I didn't do this all for nothing". Dern landed a left but was answered with another left hand from Cooper.

"When I got here, I was okay, but the people in the UFC, they were a little bit anxious", Dern told MMA Junkie earlier this week. Dern followed up shortly afterward with another big right hand, dropping Cooper. Dern moved to full mount and deftly took the back!
