Colby Covington blasts "slob" Mackenzie Dern for missing weight at UFC 224

Cooper and Dern are scheduled to meet on the main card of Saturday's PPV event. It was always a scrap that looked like it should be a good fight.

Dern followed her down to the mat where she quickly moved into the mount before rolling over to take the back. And let's be honest, missing weight by seven pounds is not acceptable. Pretty much what everyone expected from the get-go. A couple of straight punches get through for Cooper. Cooper was landing the better combos, but Dern was looking for giant shots. Another overhand for Dern just comes up short.

UFC women's strawweight standout Felice Herrig also took to social media to slam Dern. Dern rained down the ground-and-pound and locked in the rear-naked choke for the submission win.

Dern's father, Wellington Dias, is a well-known Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner and a native of Brazil, so Saturday's fight will be a homecoming of sorts for Dern. The jujitsu grappler made weight for her first bout, a split-decision strawweight win over Ashley Yoder at UFC 222 in March, but she missed weight in two fights under the Legacy banner in October 2016 and March 2017.
