UFC Fighter Goes Green to Hulk Out, Bruce Banner-Style

UFC fighter Ion Cutelaba goes by the nickname of "The Hulk," and he was determined to play the part of the Green Goliath to the fullest at the weigh-in for Saturday's UFC Fight Night 96 event.

The Moldovan fighter arrived at the weigh-in covered from head to toe in green body paint, ready to smash his opponent, and even tore off his T-shirt to complete the effect. Alas, he opted for what looks to be brown shorts instead of the Hulk's signature purple tattered pants:

The burst of gamma radiation apparently paid off, as Cutelaba defeated his opponent Jonathan Wilson in Saturday's light heavyweight bout in Portland, Oregon, earning a unanimous victory. It's Cutelaba's first UFC win.

“I am, of course, very happy,” Cutelaba said following his clean sweep. “I came here to win. I hope this will not be my last victory here. This is my job and I know it, and I am very excited to have more wins and I promise that I will be the best. I want to go home for a week and see my family, and then I will be ready to fight again.”
