UFC Women Bantamweights Lucie Pudilova and Aspen Ladd are two of the youngest and hottest prospects in their division.
They also are part of one of the most amusing callout sequences in recent memory.
Czech fighter Pudilova (8-2) got the ball rolling on social media (next to post-interviews, the most popular challenge method). Showing a keen sense of humor, her callout referenced Ladd’s recent weight miss before her UFC Fight Night contest against Leslie Smith:

Ladd (6-0), known for serious ground and pound and submission skills, seemed eager to take the bait, and raised the stakes with her response:

Not only did Ladd threaten Pudilova with oral destruction, but she copied UFC matchmaker Mick Maynard on the response.
You know your punches and kicks do not have the same emphasis and strength as mine. I would love to celebrate with you right after the fight, but you will not be able to see. What's left will be black and blue tennis balls instead of your eyes. I’m waiting pic.twitter.com/LMMQh68plW
