UFC bantamweight Lauren Murphy writes poem to call out Larissa Pacheco

Lauren Murphy decided to call out her next opponent in a different way.

A former Invicta FC bantamweight champion, Murphy wrote a poem to call out former Jungle Fight 135-pound titleholder Larissa Pacheco, and posted her "art" on Twitter.

Murphy entered the UFC with an 8-0 record in 2013, but lost to Sara McMann and Liz Carmouche inside the Octagon. Pacheco also signed with the promotion after racking up a perfect record, but dropped to 10-2 with losses to Jessica Andrade and Germaine de Randamie.

"I won’t rhyme," Pacheco told MMAFighting.com, "but tell her that I accept to fight her whenever and wherever the UFC wants."

Pacheco is still sidelined after breaking her left arm against de Randamie in March, and expects to be cleared to train in two months.
