Considering Cooper is now essentially a "strawweight vs flyweight", it's no wonder Cooper is perturbed with Dern's extra 7.4 pounds.

One of the most hyped prospects in the UFC; Mackenzie Dern, scored an emphatic first round submission victory over opponent Amanda Cooper at UFC 224 in Brazil.

The 25-year-old Dern is a rising star in UFC with a ideal professional record of 6-0. Still, Cooper accepted the fight after taking 30-percent of Dern's purse as punishment.
