Earlier we reported that Tomomi Takano (5-0, 4) wore a snake to her weigh in. Whilst that was true we didn't actually know the whole story which saw her wearing not only a snake but also a gold out fit. Originally Tomomi weighed in a golden outfit, as you can see in the first picture, "unfortunately" she was was well above the weight limit and was forced to re-weigh without the outfit on...obviously this was never done for a photo opportunity or anything.
The fact Tomomi was so seriously over-weight meant some photographers got pictures of Tomomi in various stages of undress, nothing too x-rated but still very interesting photos all the same.
When the fighter took off the outfit and used a form of tape to cover her modesty she was comfortably under the limit by around 300g. It was after making weight that Tomomi allowed photographers to get a host of shots with her and the snake.
