At this past Friday's weigh-ins, Wes Sims was holding court and proudly showing off a T-shirt with a supposed strip club of a sponsor.
At Saturday's "Strikeforce: Miami" event, Sims kicked off his bout against Bobby Lashley with some pro-wrestling-inspired taunting. And even after his lopsided TKO loss, Sims joked with his opponent and the media in a post-fight press conference.
And while it may be easy to write off the veteran fighter as MMA's resident goofball, a representative for Sims said the fighter came to win and had far more riding on the line than most fans realize.
