MMA fans will have to be in the 'bedroom' of boxing star Ebanie Bridges if they ever want to see her grappling.
That's what 'The Blonde Bomber' herself has implied, after issuing a racy response to a fan who asked when she'd be swapping the boxing ring for the octagon.
Bridges, 35, has become renowned for wowing fans with her sexy outfits at fight weigh-ins, but it's not just her figure that's proved impressive.
The Australian has seven win from her eight pro-fights so far, with her most recent bout against French fighter Mailys Gangloff in September ending in a points victory.
The clash took place at the Emerald Headingley Stadium, which was seen as a 'home fight' for Bridges given her popularity in Yorkshire for adopting Leeds United as her favourite football team.
On Thursday, she spoke of her admiration for fellow boxer Claressa Shields, despite the American losing her second MMA bout against Abigail Montes.
Light-middleweight world champion Shields, 26, took a break from boxing to take on Montes.
Bridges took to Twitter to say how much she respected Shields for "challenging herself in MMA" and coming out of her comfort zone, admitting she would never try it herself.
One fan had other ideas though, posting a GIF of Mr Bean looking lost as he stood in a field, writing: "Me waiting for the Blonde Bomber MMA debut."

The former ANBF super-bantamweight champion wasn't budging though, responding with "Sorry to disappoint all you Blonde Bomber fans who are also MMA fans but I can 100% guarantee I will never do MMA. Only place I’ll be wrestling is the bedroom."
She added a laughter emoji to the post, suggesting she at least found the suggestion humorous.
The star further engaged with her followers when one fan joked David Diamante, dubbed 'The voice of boxing', would be there for her MMA debut with microphone in hand.
Bridges responded with: “Round 5 and it looks like no slowing down for the Blonde Bomber, she has some stamina on her."
She later answered with another simple laughing emoji when asked if the fight would be on DAZN.
When Bridges does fight next, with boxing gloves that is, remains to be seen after sustaining a severely injured hand in her battle with Gangloff.
Bridges originally thought she'd suffered a break, but post-fight x-rays confirmed otherwise,
