Master Blaster rules Bartertown Lanxess Arena.
I’m sure former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight veteran-turned Major League Wrestling (MLW) pro wrestler, Tom Lawlor, is kicking himself for not thinking of the old “Master Blaster” trick during one of his many entertaining weigh ins.
Instead, that honor belongs to Stephan Puetz, who pulled a masked dwarf from a zippered sack right before his weigh-ins staredown with Jan Gottvlad this past weekend in Cologne, Germany, host city for the German MMA Championship (GMC) 16 mixed martial arts (MMA) event inside Lanexess Arena.
Puetz defeated Gottvald by way of unanimous decision in the GMC 16 main event.
Weigh-in hijinks are not uncommon in MMA, but I guess it’s better to make headlines for a dwarf on your back than a fist in your face, like those jokers at Extreme Fighting Championship (EFC) in Cape Town, South Africa.
Not sure how anyone can top Puetz moving forward, but I certainly hope they try.
