“Don’t bring your bitch ass posturing bullshit around MMA,” LaRosa tweeted. “Go back to the underworld ya f’n scrub”
Avenatti first broached the subject at the Vanity Fair Summit, suggesting a three-round mixed martial arts fight with all proceeds going to charity.
This would be for two great causes. I’m in. https://t.co/zo46yhsXCi

Trump Jr., who has been on the campaign trail, has not yet responded to Avenatti — and the attorney’s challenge is not the only one to go unanswered. About a year ago, LaRosa delivered an open challenge, requesting to fight any female fighter who identifies as Antifa. No one has yet volunteered.
