Mackenzie Dern has been taking a lot of heat for coming in way overweight for her bout tonight at UFC 224, but the prospect made short work of Amanda Bobby Cooper.
Dern, who weighed in at 123 pounds for the strawweight fight, dropped Cooper a couple of minutes in with a huge overhand right. After that, Dern took mount, and as Cooper scrambled, she sunk in a fight ending, rear-naked-choke.
