"I want to fight Carla Esparza," Eggink said in the interview, when asked who she would want to fight if she could take on someone from another organization.
"She is the Invicta FC champion and I know I can beat her. I know it. All she does is take people down and lay on them and I can stop her from taking me down. I am so much stronger than her. So, I know I could stop her from taking me down. I would love to go “beast mode” on her. I also want to fight Felice (Herrig) but not because I dislike her. Me and Felice had this tiff before I even called her out in XFC. I would love to fight her just because we have been jokingly bad-mouthing each other for so long. She would be someone I’d like to fight because she likes to stand and bang."
Esparza, the reigning Invicta FC strawweight champ, wasn't exactly pleased when she heard about Eggink's comments.
"@QoSBaszler @00Snowflake And all I said is I would take the fight in a heartbeat! Which I would," Esparza tweeted.
"@QoSBaszler @00Snowflake And who said anything about @feliceherrig ?? LOL, that is irrelevant to say to me, seeing as I did not mention her," she continued.
"Wanting 2 fight me is fine,I get it. What she said in the interview was disrespectful,so I responded accordingly.Dish what I get. History shows I'm no s*it talker,if someone disrespects me(as she did),then I'll respond accordingly."
Fight fans can't expect Esparza and Eggink to settle the score any time soon. Esparza has a fight coming up against Claudia Gadelha on Dec. 7 in Kansas City, Missouri, while Eggink is signed with the XFC.
The thought of a champ vs champ bout has fight fans salivating, but Esparza vs Eggink isn't happening any time in the near future.
"LMAO!! Insecure?That is hypocritical seein as u r coming at me about calling her callout a joke! YOU insecure about ur fighter??" Esparza tweeted to Eggink's partner, UFC contender Shayna Baszler, later in the day.
Expect this drama to get juicier as the days go on.
