And apparently, Peralta is not doing this for the first time. The Ultimate Fighter, Season 30 contestant Peralta also did so during her tenure on the series, although the scene was cut from the final product. This, according to “TUF 30” runner-up Zach Paugi, added that the producers had Peralta re-enact her shirt weigh-in since Disney is ESPN’s parent company.

“I’ll give you a backstory!” Pauga wrote on Tuesday on twitter. “She did it for her fight at TUF 30 but the producers cut it and made her weigh in again after only weighing in for the cameras. The funniest moment of the season and they cut it because ESPN belongs to Disney.”
