Bodybuilder promises to beat up 'b-tch' Cody Garbrandt at Team Alpha Male gym

Things kicked off between Garbrandt and a bodybuilder on social media.

MMA: UFC 207-Garbrandt vs Cruz Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Cody Garbrandt may not be fighting at UFC 213, but 'No Love' could end up squaring off against bodybuilder Matthew Kline Kader, who has 121k followers on Twitter.

Things kicked off between Garbrandt and Kader during an exchange with T.J. Dillashaw. Garbrandt, who was supposed to be defending his bantamweight title against Dillashaw at UFC 213, was forced to pull out of the bout due to injury and told his ex-teammate to wait until he returns back to full health instead of opting to fight flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson.

That's when Kader, who goes by the nickname 'Shallow King', interjected and called Garbrandt a 'bitch' for 'backing out' of his fight against Dillashaw.

Things escalated from there, and Kader promised to fly from Las Vegas to Sacramento on June 25 to challenge Garbrandt at Team Alpha Male (TAM).

Kader also promised to make an example of TAM coach, Justin Buchholz.

The 'International Boss', Kader, also uploaded a fight poster to Instagram, promising to keep his word on June 25.

As cringe-worthy as this situation is, it will be interesting to see if any video footage emerges on June 25, the date Kader promises 'smash' Garbrandt.

Garbrandt is currently nursing a back injury and is expected to return to the UFC sometime in the fall.
