There seems to be a new romance brewing in town and it involves athletes from two different spectrums of the combat sports world. Henry Cejudo shot out a request for a date to Nikki Bella on the most recent edition of Ariel Helwani's MMA Show for ESPN and the WWE Superstar replied in a positive fashion in a brief video she put out on Twitter.

In the video, Bella congratulated The Messenger on his successful title defense against TJ Dillashaw at UFC Fight Night 143 and felt she may have been his lucky charm. Cejudo and Bella shared the same flight en route to Brooklyn for the fight and that's where it seemed to have kicked off between the two.

The 2-time WWE Divas Champion said that she would love to come down to Arizona in order to learn a few moves from the Olympic gold medalist before saying that the two could maybe go out for a few drinks. She signed off by promising to send over a bottle of Belle Radici to the 125 lbs champion of the UFC.

Cejudo was quick to put out a tweet in response to Bella's video with an epic reference to The Rock:

Kinda corny, but Cejudo is doing his best to seal the deal. The Messenger is on top of the world right now! He has an Olympic gold medal, has defeated two of the best UFC champions in succession and may be on the cusp of winning the heart of Nikki Bella.

Naturally enough, the flirtatious back-and-forth between Bella and Cejudo has gotten Twitterati talking in numbers. We have put together the best reactions:

Some felt this was all a publicity stunt...
