Bryce Mitchell’s UFC Vegas 64 and Ilia Topuria’s UFC Vegas 63 bouts have come under threat after their opponents pulled out of the contest due to injuries.
However, in a recent tweet, “El Matador” apparently offered to introduce himself as “Thug Nasty’s” opponent for the Nov. 5 event by posting a photo of his abs and tagging Mitchell the same way.
In a video uploaded to his Instagram, the American responded to the Georgia native’s plea saying that no amount of abs in the world was going to save him from the beating that ‘Thug Nasty’ was about to inflict on him:
“I see I’m being called by Ilia Topuria to fight. He wants to go on Twitter and post a picture of his abs, his perfect little eight-pack or whatever…I’ve been eating peanut butter cookies ever since. about three weeks now and I’m still gonna get up off my couch and boo your a** homie, don’t worry about those abs. Let’s go mate, I’m sick of you putting my name in your mouth.

A clearly distraught “Thug Nasty” said he was constantly harassed online by Evloev before their fight:
“So after months of harassing and bullying me on social media, Movsar has pulled out of the fight and, might I say, I’ve never been so bullied in my life… It just pisses me off You know, that makes me want to go in there and punch him in the face… I’ve never been so harassed in my life.
This guy was texting me about him smiling. This guy was in every one of my pics… texting me [saying] fight me… call me a coward, an idiot.”
According to a report by MMA enthusiast, the Russian was expelled from the event due to an injury. Ilia Topuria would now be Bryce Mitchell’s opponent for the event.
