Julian Marquez defeated Sam Alvey in a middleweight bout and won in the second round via submission. But he didn’t exactly want to go round-for-round in the cage with the three NFL players.
"I am the entertainment you paid to see, but ABC gave it to you for free," Marquez said. "So now I have a callout to give out to everyone from Kansas City. You guys know I’m the baddest man from Kansas City. The baddest middleweight in Missouri and this is one thing – it’s my time right now.
"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 in Kansas City. This magnificent beard tops all of what you guys have to bring."
The Chiefs players were absolutely up the challenge.
The two-time defending AFC champions responded to Marquez on social media.
"Need a couple weeks but I'm always down for a challenge," Mahomes wrote.
Kelce and Hill were ready to go as well.
