Wacky weigh-in antics: Jimi Manuwa busts out his t-shirt collection


The world of MMA is a serious business, so it is refreshing every once in a while to get a good laugh in the community. Earlier today, UFC Fight Night 37 headliner, Jimi Manuwa, provided MMA fans with some comedic relief during the official weigh-ins.

As Manuwa was getting ready to hit the scale, he unleashed his t-shirt collection for the crowd in England. Check out the hilarious GIF below:

Now only if that GIF was looped so he would never stop taking off t-shirts. Anyhow, you counted that right; Manuwa was wearing a jacket and three t-shirts before the weigh-ins today. This is solely speculation, but either Manuwa needed the extra layers to cut more weight, or he just has a ton of sponsors to make happy.

Either way, it will be fun to see if Manuwa gives us an encore tomorrow after the fight with Gustafsson. Will he put on another four layers? Only time will tell.

While you are here, check out the staredown between Alexander Gustafsson and Jimi Manuwa in anticipation of their bout tomorrow. Stick with Fansided as we will have full event coverage throughout the weekend.
