With a win Sunday, Raw Women’s Champion Sasha Banks will have defended her title against her greatest adversary. What’s next may not be readily apparent to WWE fans just yet, but former UFC women’s bantamweight title challenger Cat Zingano has some ideas of her own.

Banks took to social media to call out her Hell in a Cell opponent, Charlotte, Monday.

“A lot of people want the crown, but they’re not willing to bleed for it. See you Sunday,” she wrote in a tweet.

While the message was clearly directed at her WWE counterpart, Banks caught the attention of the No. 6-ranked female bantamweight fighter on the UFC roster.

While Zingano’s callout didn’t clearly specify what sport the two would be competing in, it seems now as though she meant pro wrestling, as she hopes to acquire two belts: one inside the Octagon and another inside the squared circle.

Zingano is the latest UFC fighter to entertain the idea of performing inside the WWE ring, joining Ronda Rousey and Paige VanZant as other notable names who’ve at one point been in discussion with the WWE.

“Alpha” is currently 9-2 as a pro fighter, dropping her two most recent fights against Rousey and Julianna Pena. She has victories over the two most recent fighters to hold the UFC women’s bantamweight championship in Amanda Nunes and Miesha Tate.

Banks, meanwhile, has her hands full with preparing for the first-ever women’s Hell in a Cell match at Sunday’s pay-per-view event in Boston, Massachusetts.
