UFC Bantamweight Champion Cody Garbrandt recently pulled out of a title defense against former champion TJ Dillashaw at UFC 213.
However, another fight may be in store for the champion and this fight comes in the form of a bodybuilder by the name of Matthew Kline Kader.
The whole thing started when Kader came to the defense of TJ Dillashaw, who was being trashed by Garbrandt on Twitter.
How you gonna run your little mouth off when you're the bitch backing out of the fight? Just be quiet little man and go heal your back up.— Matthew Kline Kader™ (@Shallowking) May 24, 2017
Garbrandt would respond to the fighter, while making fun of his so called “bitch tits.”
What a shameful little pus talking shit on twitter. I'd smash your midget ass in person. Youd pull out of a street fight with a back injury— Matthew Kline Kader™ (@Shallowking) May 24, 2017
Upon being challenged to a street fight by the bodybuilder, the UFC Bantamweight Champion tweeted out a location for the two to meet in a street fight.
6700 Folsom blvd Sacramento, California come through, let me know if you need me to book you a flight! https://t.co/u7r1U7mdSM— Cody Garbrandt (@Cody_Nolove) May 25, 2017
Then the bodybuilder not only promised he would show up for the street fight against the UFC star, but a camera crew is coming with him.
I'm gonna show up to his gym with a camera crew and prove he's a bitch! He made the biggest mistake of his life. That's a promise----— Matthew Kline Kader™ (@Shallowking) May 25, 2017
In an attempt to prove he was on his way to fight the UFC Bantamweight Champion, the bodybuilder put a picture of his plane ticket and other information on Twitter for all to see.
Former UFC fighter and current Team Alpha Male coach Justin Buchholz also got in on the fun as well.
In an attempt to get his followers involved in the action, the bodybuilder put a poll up to let the fans choose whom he would fight, either Dillashaw or Garbrandt.
When I show up at team alpha fail June 25th should Garbrandt be fighting me or his dad (coach)— Matthew Kline Kader™ (@Shallowking) May 26, 2017
Buchholz is not only threatening to beat up the bodybuilder, but the camera crew and his mom as well.
You show up im kicking your ass, your camera crews asses and your mom's. #bitch— Justin Buchholz (@JustinBuchholz) May 25, 2017
Accusations of trolling were then tossed back and forth, then the bodybuilder asked Buchholz to stop fighting his “sons” battle.
Ok BITCH. I guess we'll see if I'm trolling when that date arrives. The world will see the coward Cody is when u try 2 fight his battles.— Matthew Kline Kader™ (@Shallowking) May 26, 2017
We are a little less than a month away from the proposed bodybuilder versus MMA fighter battle, which is set to take place on June 25.
