UFC Champion Asks Nikki Bella Out, He Gets An Immediate Reply

Henry Cejudo has made his move on Nikki Bella after asking the WWE superstar out on a date.

Speaking on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show, the 31-year-old UFC fighter told the ESPN journalist how he had a chance encounter with his 'biggest crush' on a plane ride.

Helwani decided to take a page out of Cupid's book and tagged the 35-year-old on Twitter so she would take notice of the interview.

Well, it worked.

Nikki, who is one half of the famed Bella Twins, responded to Cejudo in a video and said she was open to the idea of having a drink.

"What up, Henry? So I just saw your interview on Ariel's podcast," she said. "Um, wow. Thank you very much.

"I want to say, first of all, congrats on your really big win. I would like to think that, you know, maybe possibly I was a good luck charm, meeting you on the flight.

"And I'm hoping maybe one day in Arizona you can train me before I get back into that ring. I think you have a few moves that you know you can show me that, you know, can really take it to the women.

"And hey, I mean, I know you're cutting weight and all, but maybe one day we could grab a drink or, I don't know, I really should send you a bottle of Bella Vidici wine for your big victory. So I'll do that."

It's safe to say that Cejudo, who holds the UFC Flyweight Championship, was pretty excited to hear back from her, especially as he posted his own video response.

"What up, Nikki Bella? I'm getting ready for you," he said.

"If you like moves, I heard you want to learn some moves. I got moves that'll knock you off your feet, so I hope you're ready for that."

The star of Total Bellas was engaged to WWE superstar John Cena, but the two broke up last year.

While the leader of C-Nation has surprised a lot of people with his change in hairstyle, he revealed in 2018 that he would still marry Nikki.

Will Cena compete at WrestleMania this year?
