UFC 224 Live Stream Dern

On Friday morning in Brazil, Mackenzie Dern weighed in at 123 pounds, a full seven pounds over the 115-pound limit while her opponent Amanda Cooper had no issues falling within the one-pound allowance at 116.

Dern remains unbeaten in her career improved to 7-0, while Cooper falls to 1-2 in her past three outings.

She made weight prior to her split decision victory over Ashley Yoder in her UFC debut in March. At the UFC 224 post-fight press conference, Brazilian said she's ashamed of continues failure to make weight.

Uber closer to launching flying vehicle service
It all looks good, but I am not so confident I will think that when I am 2,000 feet above Rome's traffic. Uber plans to start flight demonstrations in Los Angeles by 2020, and launch commercial flights by 2023.

Dern appeared significantly bigger as the two fighters made their way to the octagon.

Mackenzie Dern on how ashamed she feels: "I'm ashamed of that; I don't want that to happen again".

"When I got here, I was okay, but the people in the UFC, they were a little bit anxious", Dern told MMA Junkie earlier this week. A lot of things have been happening. I missed flights and a lot of things happened and I just kept going and going. But there was a point where the weight wasn't going away any more. "I don't want to not make weight but what can I do", Dern said.

Raptors fire coach Casey after National Basketball Association playoff ouster
Under Casey, the Raptors won four Atlantic Division titles and advanced to the playoffs in five consecutive seasons. Ujiri said a few times on Friday that he hoped Casey would be celebrated for all that he has done here.

However, Cooper insisted on taking the fight, but called Dern "unprofessional" for missing weight by that much. I think if I fought anywhere, Vegas or another place, I would have felt it more. And the fact I was able to do it before, I thought I knew what I was doing. "The people support me either way". "The UFC is investing in me and I'm going to work with them not to happen ever again".

"My manager said that the UFC would want me to move up in weight. Since the first day I got here, the UFC was trying to help me and was saying I'd be able to make weight, and I did it last time".

"I've always wanted to fight here in Brazil", she said.
