She should’ve used that energy celebrating to cut weight! ☕️ #UFC224

I think she’s coasting on talent at the moment though. Maybe she will get her act together before taking a loss, but seven pounds is unprofessional, and a sign that she isn’t preparing properly.

Mackenzie Dern with the win/finish in round 1. Overhand, mount, RNC. Let’s hope she learns from this weigh-in debacle and never misses weight again. #UFCRio

I was just saying that if Dern connects with one of those flinging punches it could do some damage and sure enough led to a Rnc. But let’s not forget 123lbs…#ufc224

This isn’t the first time she’s missed weight. But okay.
