Felice Herrig drops towel at personal naked weigh-in (video)
Felice Herrig fought Michelle Waterson in the women’s strawweight division at UFC 229. Appearing before a weigh-in, Felice covered herself with a towel to check her weight. But unfortunately she dropped the towel befor the camera. Previously, Felice has previously complained about UFC not promoting her enough due to her looks.

“I just want to say I’m sorry to the fans, to the UFC and most definitely my opponent. I hope that she gets a replacement. There’s still enough time. As for me, what can you do? All I can do is move forward, stay positive and work on my recovery and come back stronger than ever,” she added.
“In the meantime, I hope everybody sends me warm wishes and hugs and virtual kisses and prayers. And just know that I ll be back.”
It’s a tough blow for “Lil’ Bulldog,” who will now be forced to the sidelines and rehab once she goes under the knife to correct the injury. Felice was looking to get back into the win column against Yan, who hasn’t tasted defeat inside the Octagon.
As Herrig said in her statement, there is plenty of time for UFC to find a suitable replacement for the Chinese-born fighter.
UFC 238 will feature a Bantamweight title fight that will see Flyweight champion Henry Cejudo battle Marlon Moraes for the vacant title. In the co-main event, Valentina Shevchenko will defend her women’s Flyweight strap against Jessica Eye.
