UFC Fighter Seems To Have Blown His Shot With Miley Cyrus | 22 Words

A UFC fighter seems to have blown his chance at dating Miley Cyrus after he used his victory speech to ask her out.

Very brave, we know! Read on to find out how the pop star reacted...

Miley Cyrus is a woman that a lot of people would love to take out on a date...

Because just look at her!

​She's had quite a turbulent dating life in the past, however...

And it seems that she's living her best single life at the moment.

Well, one UFC fighter recently felt he had a pretty good chance with the pop star...

But his confidence didn't play out well... at all.

The singer shot down his request to take her out on a date...

And it seems that the professional fighter has well and truly blown his chance!

Here's the full story...

Now, Miley Cyrus has had an interesting life, to say the least.

Considering she's just twenty-eight-years-old, it's pretty remarkable everything the star has done so far!

But she hasn't been without controversy.

Following her Disney stardom in Hannah Montana, the star featured in a Vanity Fair photo-shoot which some accused of being "provocative" - the first sign that the star was becoming restless in her Hannah Montana role.

At the time, she issued an apology for the controversial shoot.

But the star later retracted her apology for the controversial Vanity shoot...

In 2018, a decade on from the photo-shoot, the singer took to Twitter to say that she's no longer sorry about the shoot.

Following her Disney fame, Miley has enjoyed a successful music career...


The singer released 2 albums while starring in Hannah Montana - producing several singles, including the popular 2009 hits "Party in the U.S.A.," and "The Climb".

And, in the same year that we waved goodbye to Hannah Montana, the star began her on-off relationship with Liam Hemsworth.


The 2 first met on the set of Nicholas Sparks's film, The Last Song, in 2009, where they starred opposite each other as love interests.

Of course, we all know how that ended...


They may have been one of Hollywood's most high profile couples, but just 8 months after tying the knot, the pair called it quits.

And of course...

Miley also dated old flame Cody Simpson - but it seems that didn't work out either.

Soon after her Disney-induced fame, the pop powerhouse began to drastically move away from her PG persona.

We well and truly kissed goodbye to Hannah Montana when the star debuted her bleach blonde pixie cut in 2012, marking a huge change of direction for the singer.

And, as well as her whacky haircuts...


Around this time, the star attracted headlines for her rebellious antics, too.

From smoking marijuana to getting tatted up, she was hot tabloid news...

And many dubbed her as just another Disney star who had gone off the rails.

But in the last year, Miley has been making some major changes.

From embracing almost a year of sobriety to switching up her diet and lifestyle... the singer is feeling better than ever.

Back in November 2020, Miley spoke to Elle about her sobriety.

"I've been sober... sober for the past 6 months. At the beginning, it was just about this vocal surgery," she said, referencing her operation in 2019.

"It's really hard because especially being young, there's that stigma of 'you're no fun..' It's like, 'honey, you can call me a lot of things, but I know that I'm fun.' The thing that I love about it is waking up 100 percent, 100 percent of the time. I don't want to wake up feeling groggy. I want to wake up feeling ready."

And although her past relationships haven't worked out, Miley doesn't need a partner to thrive.

She has been single for quite some time now and it's clear that she has a great bubble of family and friends surrounding her and being there for support and guideance.

But of course, being a famous and eligible young woman brings Miley a lot of attention...

And her most recent hopeful bachelor ended up being brutally shot down by the star... even though he asked her out live on television!

It all started in Las Vegas on Saturday, the night before Valentine's Day...

When MMA fighter Julian Marquez won his first fight in thirty months against Maki Pitolo.

When it was time for him to give his victory speech on live TV, he decided to use his platform to reach out to his true Valentine.

After chatting to Joe Rogan about the fight, the fighter ended his speech by saying:

"Miley Cyrus, will you be my Valentine?"

Of course, this caused a Twitter storm...

And people were super eager to see if Miley would respond to her hopeful bachelor.

In his post-fight interview, Julian explained what it was about Miley that interested him so much.

"I mean, think about it. I'm thirty-years-old, I grew up watching Hannah Montana, 'Party in the U.S.A', we're sitting here loving it, I've been to her concerts many times, she came out with 'Wrecking Ball'," he explained.

"Every time I walk out [during a fight] to Miley she does something to me to figure out a way to win and she's just my love! I love that woman!"

Well, shortly after Julian made his romantic announcement, Miley was quick to respond.

"Shave an MC into your chest hair and I am YOURS. Happy VDay and Congrats my love," she tweeted Julian.

How cute?!

Of course, this got fans seriously excited.

What does this mean!?

​But it's true when they say... nothing lasts forever.

The singer took to her Instagram stories to post a series of seemingly cryptic messages, with this being the first one.

"This could be yours but you dumb," she wrote along with a mirror selfie.

And then...

Miley posted this throwback of Britney Spears wearing a t-shirt saying, "Dump him."

She wrote alongside it, "Already did Brit."

So, it seems that Julian's romantic attempt didn't quite pay off in the end!
