    Highly accomplished jiu-jitsu specialist Mackenzie Dern is a perfect 7-0 in her MMA career, and 2-0 in the UFC. If there is one problem that has plagued her in MMA, it’s making the strawweight limit, and even though she’s missed three times, she is still going to compete at that weight class.

    According to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, Dern plans to continue fighting at 115 lbs “after a long consultation process with doctors.” The 25-year-old weighted an astonishing 123 lbs for her UFC 224 win vs. Amanda Bobby Cooper, seven pounds over the non-title strawweight limit. She’s also come in at 120 and 118.8 lbs for her other misses. Her one official flyweight fight came in October 2017, when she…

    She doesn't have weight cutting issues

    She has I can't step away from the buffet line issues

    Max Holloway has weight cutting issues

    Big difference

    She has a pattern of coming in heavy and then putting the pressure on the other girl
    to accept the fight at a disadvantage

    In my opinion at minimum if she misses weight again but wins
    the fight it should be ruled a no contest

    She has 3 wins in a division she never actually made weight to fight in

    Thats bullshit

    They should have a 3 strikes and you're out rule- miss weight 3 times and contractually, you have to go up in weight.

    Its just silly bro. "After speaking with her doctors"

    Get real. She has baby fat sagging off her and is soft as fuck

    Doctor - "In my professional opinion I think you should put down the smores"

    as a guy who had seen dern in person she probably walks around at 135 lbs ,she does seem short though compared to other straweights I have seen in person but she looks like she weights more, I guess the point I was trying to make is I think she will miss weight and should probably fight at 125.

    I think she is going to miss weight she has to cut 20 lbs and doesn't seem very good at doing it.

    she aint giving up the size and strength adv fighting at sw gives her, it also helps her durability vs better strikers which there are many of and it enhances her striking making up for her lack of offensive depth
