According to an Aug. 20 tweet from Tara LaRosa, the WMMA legend wants Invicta FC strawweight contender Felice Herrig to stop running her mouth on Twitter on her own, before she has to shut it for her with her fists.
The argument stemmed from a Fightland article, where LaRosa was quoted saying that the WMMA fighters who play up the sexy angle are those who generally are lacking in skill.
Herrig took offense to that quote since she uses her good looks to her advantage, while also maintaining a top ten ranking in the strawweight division.
"@feliceherrig Mmm... keep running your mouth baby and we're gonna find out if you can deep [expletive] my fist," LaRosa tweeted.
LaRosa, a WMMA legend who has been actively competing since 2002, has been going back-and-forth with Invicta FC's newest star for the past two days on Twitter, and there's no end in sight to the wacky madness.
The chaos appeared to be dying down for a bit, but Herrig stirred the pot again by claiming that LaRosa has never been a champion in anything.
"@Loud_MouthLarry @TaraLaRosa I'm a Muay Thai champ. Since when has she been a champ in anything ?" Herrig said to a fan on Twitter, which obviously piqued LaRosa's interest.
LaRosa quickly fired back with a verbal jab of her own.
"@feliceherrig @Loud_MouthLarry reeeally Felice? ...how far back would you like to go?" LaRosa wrote.
Herrig then made things kind of awkward with a bizarre sexual remark.
"@TaraLaRosa @Loud_MouthLarry I love it when you talk dirty to me Tara ;)," Herrig tweeted back.
One day prior, Herrig shot more insults LaRosa's way.
"Also, I back it up. Ive never missed weight or laid on the ground in a fight cuz I didnt want 2 strike w someone," Herrig tweeted. "Yes. In your fight with Porto. You kept falling to your back in desperation of taking it to the ground. The sport has evolved and you did not evolve w/ it. U could've left a legend but ur negativity has left a bitter taste in everyone's mouth."
LaRosa took it in stride, making a joke about her advanced age.
"@feliceherrig @FIGHTLAND @InvictaFights Honestly,I dont giv a shit.I did it my way.Do it ur way,jus make sur u can back it up¬ look silly," LaRosa tweeted.
She concluded by telling Herrig to "get off her lawn."
