A former UFC fighter got kicked out of the gym recently for randomly taking her pants off.
Pearl Gonzalez, who previously fought for the UFC and currently fights in the strawweight division of the Invicta Fighting Championships, recounted the incident on Twitter.
For obvious reasons, it quickly went viral.
In an effort to show that she wasn’t just embellishing for the sake of social media, she posted the video itself.
The video largely speaks for itself:

Gonzalez currently boasts a 10-5 record. She was most recently scheduled to face Erin Blanchfield for the vacant Invicta FC Flyweight Championship at Invicta FC 43 on November 20, 2020, but was forced to withdraw due to COVID.
She is also not the first ex-UFC fighter to try to gain attention in this fashion.
Paige VanZant recently went viral after she posted a photo of herself wearing nothing but a whipped cream bikini.

Just goes to show you – fighters don’t need the UFC to stay relevant.
