Tabatha Ricci is a rising star in the UFC Women’s Strawweight division. She recently experienced an unfortunate incident on social media. After her impressive win against Jessica Penne at UFC 285, Ricci received an inappropriate request from a fan via direct message. This behavior is unacceptable, and fans must learn to respect UFC stars and their personal boundaries.
On March 11, 2023, Tabatha Ricci shared a screenshot of the inappropriate messages she received on social media. The messages were inappropriate, and Ricci expressed her disbelief by writing “WTF” on the post. It is unfortunate that stars, especially female ones, are often subjected to such inappropriate behavior from fans.

Tabatha Ricci is a 28-year-old Brazilian, she’s currently on a three win streak since her first professional loss and has cracked the Top 15 rankings. Her recent win against Jessica Penne at UFC 285 was the biggest win of her young career, and it is clear that she has a bright future ahead of her.
In recent years, several female stars, including Felice Herrig, have turned to OnlyFans to supplement their income. While there is nothing wrong with stars monetizing their content, it is essential to understand that this does not give fans the right to make inappropriate requests.
This is the second incident of this sort in recent times. Previously newly crowned champion Alexa Grasso had an awkward run-in with a similar troll.
