Helen Peralta’s message is concise, the reasoning remains a bit murky.
The MMA fighter arrived at the Invicta FC 49 weigh-in bare-chested with tape over her breasts that contained the message: “F–k Disney.”
The Dominican flyweight is 5-2 in her career and is coming off back-to-back wins ahead of her fight Wednesday night with Poliana Botelho.
Peralta, 34, expanded on her message on Twitter.
“For those who don’t want to know, go back to your regularly scheduled programming,” Peralta wrote.
“This is just a glitch in the matrix. If you found me offensive, I’m not sorry. Just imagine a pound of silicone under each breast and boom. Now I’m just … brave. P.s I didn’t kill myself.”
This is also not the first time Peralta has tried to get this message out. According to fighter Zac Pauga, Peralta did something similar during the weigh-in of “The Ultimate Fighter” season 30. However, Pauga claims that producers made her do a separate weigh-in for the broadcast of the show.Helen Peralta at the Invicta FC 49 weigh-in on Sept. 27, 2022.Invicta FC TwitterHelen Peralta (left) in her fight against Kaytlin Neil on “The Ultimate Fighter.”Zuffa LLC
“I’ll give you the background!” Pauga wrote on Twitter, via MMA Junkie. “She did this for her fight on TUF 30, but the producers cut it and made her weigh in again after making weight just for the cameras. Funniest moment of the season, and they cut it because ESPN is a Disney-owned company.”
Invicta FC 49 is at 8 p.m. on Wednesday night from the Sugar Creek Casino in Oklahoma.
