Mackenzie Dern was confident that she could hit the strawweight limit until the night before the official weigh-ins, despite arriving in Brazil for the UFC 224 fight week at 139.5 pounds.

On Friday, the Brazilian jiu-jitsu star was the talk of the MMA world when she came in seven pounds over the strawweight maximum for her showdown with Amanda Cooper.

“I started to get nervous on Thursday night,” Dern told Ariel Helwani on the latest episode of The MMA Hour.

Click the link and look at the screenshot on the video. She has big time Crazy Eyes. This chick is delusional. I have no idea what world she lives in, let alone what planet she is currently residing. She arrived weighing 139.5 and on Wednesday was 131 and 'wasn't worried about it.' Then she alleges she was sweating but couldn't drop any more pounds!? That makes no sense. That does not make sense (South Park reference). She needs to fully accept the UFC's dietician. She alleges the hesitancy of gaining a nutritionist!? This is like the kid in class that always gets bad grades and blames the subject not their own work ethic.

She went public and said that was gonna be her primary focus making weight. The problem is she's missed by a lot. No more than Prazeres did. Dez Green took that fight in Belam Brazil with Prazares and he was over 160+lbs. Lineker missed weight at least 4 times. Even missed it at BW once.

Yes it was a big weight miss by Dern but people act like she's a habitual offender. 7 pro fights, 1 missed in the UFC and 1 missed weight attempt in Legacy, her 2nd pro fight she was 118.6lbs.

She's made weight in 5 of 7 events as a Pro and everyone losses their mind.

Look at Henry Cejudo. He had troubles early on and is now always on point and the #2/3 Flyweight Worldwide.

I don't want to get into a body image conversation, but watching her fight on Saturday, she had a lot of potential weight she could lose.

It seems she doesn't want to walk around at 130, which she probably needs to if she wants to be in the 115 division.
