Be it entertainment or sports, UFC middleweight Julian Marquez has a knack for maximizing his platform and grabbing the attention of mainstream stars.

Last time after UFC 258, it was Miley Cyrus agreeing to be his Valentine, although it’s debatable whether he fumbled his response.

This time, on Saturday after he choked out Sam Alvey at UFC on ABC 2, Marquez used his air time on national network TV to issue a callout of Kansas City Chiefs star players Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill.

The challenge: badminton or pickleball, the latter of which I’ve never heard of.

“If you guys wanna see who the pound-for-pound champ is of Kansas City, you’re coming after me. This magnificent beard tops all of what you guys have to bring.”

Just like with Miley, this worked! One by one, they responded.
