UFC women’s flyweight champion Nicco Montano recently offered a heated message to MMA reporter Ariel Helwani, as the journalist claimed that the UFC was becoming “frustrated” in their attempts to lock down a title fight between Montano and Valentina Shevchenko. Now “Bullet” has come forward with a word or two of her own.
First, taking to Twitter, Helwani reported that the UFC was considering other options within reference to booking Montano in a title fight.
“UFC is losing patience with Nicco Montaño. As I reported last week, the plan was for her to defend the 125 title against Valentina Shevchenko in Calgary but they are having a hard time getting a commitment from her. While it’s not scrapped, they are now looking at other options.”
Montano was quick to fire back with a lengthy message refuting Helwani’s claims. Check it out below:
“This just in…. @arielhelwani is a huge waste of space. Everyone and their grandma knows about my condition. I’m 5days post tonsillectomy and adenoid removal surgery due to a bacterial infection that’s been inhibiting my practice all year. Soonest I can get back on the mats is 16 more days.
“The UFC not only knows about this but flew me out to Vegas themselves to get this surgery done ASAP so I can jump on getting a fight with Schevchenko lined up. If you’ve been a fan of mine then you know my mind set… no girl is anything I’m not. Who’s scared to fight? It’s what I do, it’s literally why I’m the anomaly here, because I was ranked #14 on the show and came out #1. It’s apparently in douchbag’s best interest to throw my name out to the wolves in order to stay relevant.
“I literally haven’t spoken a word in 5 days due to my condition and Mr. Poor Excuse of a Man has not only brought it upon himself to be the leader of idiot fans who don’t know the difference between MMA and UFC but also has the balls the size of a baby rat to say I’m scared while key board warrior over here is more than likely to eat a fat man’s ass than get in the octagon with HIS 125lbs Champ… drop. …….. lesson of the day, don’t believe everything you read, idiots run their mouths. Ps, @arielhelwani you suck at your job, I heard MMA is looking for a better journalist who is actually knowledgeable “
Now Valentina Shevchenko has come forward with a few words to pressure the champion into signing a bout agreement.
“I sign the bout agreement time ago already and you Nico still wasting time.
You have whole 3 month ahead.
Sign fight agreement, go back to the gym and this only one prove for everyone that you are not afraid.
See you in the cage”
