Mackenzie Dern Flattered That Amanda Cooper Wanted to Fight Her, "I didn’t know who she was"

Drake Riggs - March 26, 2018

Everybody loves to be the person who stops a so-called ‘hype train’. They’re those cases where one gets to prove that maybe they’re the ones who deserved some of the spotlights over those who were hogging it all up(whether by their choice or not). In this case, it’s fair to say that highly touted young prospect and BJJ wizard, Mackenzie Dern has herself a bit of a hype train rolling and she even admits it. So why wouldn’t her next opponent, Amanda Cooper be wanting to stop that?

Amanda Cooper roasts her UFC 218 opponent Angela Magana

Tom Taylor - December 4, 2017

Last weekend, on the undercard of UFC 218, Amanda Cooper picked up a dominant stoppage win over polarizing strawweight star Angela Magana. While Cooper’s win was more than enough to put her heated rivalry with Magana to bed, she still had plenty to say about her at the UFC 218 press conference, evidently still put off my Magana’s history of trash talk and internet bullying. “I don’t think the sport needs her,” Cooper said at the UFC 218 post-fight presser (h/t “I don’t think the UFC needs her. Maybe she needs it. As soon as I called her out she was on Twitter freaking out. I think she gets something out of it. I don’t mean to be mean, but I think she probably needed that a little bit. I don’t think the sport needs her, but I think she needs it.”
