Just when you thought that you have seen it all at the weigh-ins, fighters prove us wrong.
The latest incident came courtesy of German MMA fighter Stephan Puetz. He carried a big duffel bag to his pre-fight weigh-in ceremony. And much to the surprise of everyone, Puetz pulled out a small person in Terminator Mask from the bag.
You can see the video below.

And if you thought that this was an isolated incident, think again. Puetz, who currently holds a professional record of 16-4 to his name, is a huge fan of Terminator. He is nicknamed T-800 which is an ode to the character played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Terminator series.
This is not the first time that he is stealing the show at the weigh-ins. A few months back, Puetz brought a plastic oil can to the stage and drank from it to give the Terminator Effect.
Puetz even has a video on his Facebook page where he pretends to be a Terminator. You can see that video below.

Theatrics aside, Puetz did manage to secure a win at the GMC 16 event this past week. He defeated Jan Gottvald. The fight went the distance and Puetz managed to sneak out the decision victory. and secured the 16th win of his professional career. The win also marked an end to his two-fight losing streak. As for Gottvald, it marked an end to his five-fight winning streak.
The exact reason behind the small person still remains a mystery. Nevertheless, Puetz managed to make a statement with his antics. And the win in his fight served as an icing on the cake.
