AEW’s Tay Conti issues MMA challenge, ex-UFC fighter Angela Magana accepts

Tay Conti is looking to get an MMA fight booked and it appears that Angela Magana will grant her wish.

It all started when the AEW star wrote, “Give me a MMA challenge please …” in a post on her Twitter account. Megana responded with, “Uh Vai Morrer,” which means “you're gonna die.”

Conti responded with, “Let’s do it?” Magana put up an emoji. Tay wrote back with, “The only death problem I see here is losing weight to be as small as ya but don’t worry I’ll be ready to kick your ass.”

Finally, Magana commented on that post by writing, “Nice excuse menina. If you are so scared to go down to my weight I might just come up to make you regret and end your MMA dream for good.”
