Fighters having to completely disrobe in order to make their contracted weight limit is nothing new to the world of MMA, but most of the athletes make it a point to hide their genitalia from the crowd behind a towel.
Today in Australia, Paulo Filho elected against the towel.
Jordan Breen from Sherdog was on the scene in Sydney when Filho apparently caused a scene during his final trip to the scales. It looks like Filho missed weight on his initial attempt and was forced to the sauna by his opponent for this evening’s “Impact FC 2” event, Denis Kang (who had already made weight). An hour later Filho returned, covered in sweat, and took all of his clothes off in front of the less than thrilled audience to make 186 lbs, and the fight will go on.
All fighters made weight for the event where Ken Shamrock is slated to face off with Pedro Rizzo in the headliner.
