'WTF' - Female UFC fighter exposes fan for sending her 'creepy' DMs on social media
| Last updated
Tabatha Ricci has ruthlessly exposed a UFC fan for sending her a series of creepy direct messages on social media.
The Brazilian fighter has reeled off three impressive wins in the UFC since her defeat to Manon Fiorot in June 2021.
And her biggest scalp came recently at UFC 285, where she submitted Jessica Penne.
Her stellar performances inside the famed Octagon have attracted interest from UFC fans, but one social media user has taken it too far.
Ricci has shared a disturbing screenshot of one Twitter user relentlessly messaging her through DMs, asking for a strange request.
One message reads: "Can I please buy pictures of your feet."
A second reads: "I am willing to do whatever you say in order for you to send me pictures of feet or shoes miss."
In another message, the user wrote: "Step on my face."
The 28-year-old uploaded the image online, accompanied with the short yet blunt caption: "WTF."
Four inappropriate messages within three hours is not a good look and good on Ricci for calling out the supposed fan to the MMA community.

The UFC women's strawweight contender, meanwhile, is hoping to land a spot in the UFC rankings following her big win over Penne.
"I don’t even know how that armbar happened. I was just asking my coach. I have to go back and look at it again. Every day, so many times drilling throws and submissions over and over, it’s something that just happened natural," she said.
"I just had a go since like last year to be ranked. I think now I deserve (to be ranked) since I’ve got three wins straight, especially over Jessica.
"I don’t have specific names. Whatever my managers and UFC think is going to be good for me, I’m just waiting for the call. I’m ready. That’s my lifestyle. That’s what I do every day. I love what I do. I just can’t wait to go back to the gym. I always want to be active. It was not my fault that my opponents pull out. So if my body allows me to fight, I’m here to go."
