In New First, MMA Fighter Brings Back Up On Stage For Staredown

German mixed martial arts promotion GMC put on an event over the weekend. While the fight card offered some interesting match ups, the weigh-in for the event is currently getting fight fans’ attention.

GMC 16 went down Sept. 1, featuring a series of match ups. Headlining the card, light heavyweight champion Jan Gottvald faced off against Stephan Puetz. Appearing at the weigh-ins ahead of the match up, Puetz had a surprise for the audience.

The fighter toted a large bag onto the stage before hitting the scales. Just before his following staredown with Gottvald, Puetz then opened the bag, revealing that a person was inside. The individual then perched on Puetz’s shoulders as the fighter performed his mean mugging with Gottvald.
