A UFC star challenged Kansas City Chiefs stars Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill over the weekend after notching a brutal finish over his latest MMA rival. UFC middleweight contender Julian Marquez defeated Sam Alvey via second-round technical submission after choking his opponent to sleep on Saturday during the latest UFC on ABC card in Las Vegas, Nevada.

You can watch that stunning finish below.

But what Marquez did after the fight during his post-fight interview is what really grabbed people’s attention.

Marquez, a native of Kansas City, used that time on national television to challenge his favorite football team’s biggest NFL stars.

Don’t worry, though. Marquez isn’t looking to fight them. It should also be noted he doesn’t want to play football against them.

Nope, Marquez wants to play badminton or pickleball with them.

You can watch the bizarre callout below.

“I am the entertainment you pay to see, but ABC gave it to you for free. So now I have a call out to give to everyone from Kansas City. You see, this is the thing. I’m the baddest man from Kansas City, the baddest middleweight from Missouri, and this is one thing, it’s my time right now,” Marquez said.

It seemed from his tone Marquez was about to call out a future UFC opponent, but that’s not what happened. Instead, he started about the NFL stars.

“So Travis Kelce, Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, I challenge you guys to a badminton or pickleball competition. Straight up, if you guys want to see who the pound-for-pound champ is of Kansas City, you’re coming after me,” Marquez said.

Marquez finished his callout by noting the magnificence of his own beard. To be completely fair to the middleweight brawler, he’s not wrong about its quality.

“This magnificence beard tops all of what you guys have to bring,” Marquez said.

Marquez is 9-2 in MMA. It’s unclear what record he holds in badminton or pickleball, but what is clear is that the UFC star is completely confident he could beat the likes of Mahomes, Kelce and Hill at those games.

That, or maybe he just wants to meet them.
