Iconic WWE wrestling superstar John Cena recently followed an up-and-coming UFC bantamweight on Twitter, sending him into a frenzy.

American mixed martial artist Adrian Yanez expressed his excitement after Cena followed him. The 13-time WWE champion has an active presence on the social media platform, where he regularly shares updates from his professional life and motivational tweets.

Cena is also known to liberally dish out follows to fans, media personalities, and other Twitter users, racking up over 530,000 on his following list. Adrian Yanez counted himself fortunate to be one of them as he tweeted ecstatically:

"Kind of geeked out just now.. @JohnCena just followed me"

A GIF of John Cena's superhero character Peacemaker dancing accompanied Yanez's celebratory tweet.

UFC bantamweight Adrian Yanez responds to Belal Muhammad and fans bantering him on Twitter

Top welterweight contender Belal Muhammad took the opportunity to banter with a fellow UFC fighter and replied to Adrian Yanez's tweet.

Muhammad referenced John Cena's popular slogan as part of his wrestling gimmick, "You Can't See Me," and hilariously questioned how Yanez spotted the superstar's follow on Twitter.

Muhammad wrote:

"How did u see him ? [eyes emoji]"
@yanezmma @JohnCena How did u see him ? Q👀

Yanez replied with a GIF of John Cena, writing:

"Sh*t... you caught the lie..."
@bullyb170 @JohnCena Shit... you caught the lie...

One fan also reminded Yanez that Cena is generous with his follows, claiming that it does not warrant excitement for being a part of half-a-million other follows:

"You and 532k others"

Yanez kept his composure and stated that he didn't mind it in the least:

"That's fine, atleast I'm one of them."
@PereiraBackflip @JohnCena That's fine, atleast I'm one of them.

Other fans hilariously brought up former UFC middleweight contender Chael Sonnen's attempts at gaining John Cena's attention on social media:

"Chael just unfollowed you"
"@ChaelSonnen would hate this. He's been trying to get Cena to acknowledge him forever"

Check out the fans' tweets below:

@yanezmma @JohnCena Chael just unfollowed you
@yanezmma @JohnCena @ChaelSonnen would hate this. He's been trying to get Cena to acknowledge him forever
