Hornet accepts Lentz’s challenge to dress translator in drag: ‘Don’t get sick again buttercup’

Levan Makashvili and his manager have responded to the interesting challenge presented by Nik Lentz.

Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

Last week, recently signed UFC featherweight Levan Makashivili revealed in an interview with that he was suspicious about Nik Lentz's sudden withdrawal from their scheduled fight at the UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs. Thatch event. He accused Lentz of "cowering away" from the fight, and claimed that it was a strategic decision on the part of Lentz's team.

This prompted an interesting response from Lentz. The featherweight with a 9-3 record inside the octagon wrote a letter to BloodyElbow where he challenged the ‘Hornet' to a fight with a unique stipulation - the translator/manager was required to dress in drag at the post-fight press conference if Makashvili loses the fight.

Less than 24 hours later, Levan and his camp have officially accepted the offer.

Mr. Nik Lentz,

The wounded warrior 10% donation is a wonderful idea. Great attempt in trying to cover your past cowardly behavior with a noble cause. Now don't back out on them either. If that's going to excite you then let's do it. Speaking of excitement your request to see my trainer in a dress is creepy, but he will comply because he is confident you will lose . Why don't we make the wager fair? When I win, YOU have to put on a skirt. With all these stipulations we are truly convinced you don't want this fight. We can sense you are already broken mentally. It is obvious your fear has exposed itself in your own words and our past suspicions are validated with your interview. I hope there is enough incentive for you now. Your mouth is writing checks that your ass can't cash, get ready for a beating buddy. We accept without a shadow of a doubt, at a blink of an eye we accept!

Formally and officially your pal,

Levan Makashvili

P.S. Don't get sick again buttercup
