Mackenzie Dern confident ahead of cup for UFC Vegas 11: “You don’t have to question my weight anymore”


Mackenzie Dern would like to point out that her weight problems are a thing of the past.

The Brazilian jiu-jitsu champion turned UFC strawweight has managed to beat the scales in her previous two outings, hitting the 115-pound limit for fights against Hannah Cifers and Amanda Ribas. The Cifers’ fight at UFC on ESPN 9 was his first since the birth of his daughter Moa in June of last year and also his first win since UFC 224 in May 2018.

This UFC 224 win over Amanda Cooper was marred by Dern’s seven-pound lack of weight, the third time in her MMA career that she had failed to gain weight. In a recent appearance on MMA Fighting’s What the hell show, Dern was given the floor to answer any potential questions about his cut ahead of Saturday’s fight with Randa Markos in advance at UFC Vegas 11.
