This Valentine’s Day pairing is unexpected.
Over the weekend, MMA fighter Julian Marquez gave a very special Valentine’s Day shout-out to his favourite pop star.
“I’ve been waiting 31 months to get on this damned mic,” he said after winning his match against Maki Pitolo. “And to call these people out right now … this is my time to shine. So, Miley Cyrus — will you be my Valentine?”

Cyrus caught wind of Marquez’ Valentine’s request and quickly responded, but she had one request before agreeing.
Shave an MC into your chest hair and I am YOURS ❤️ Happy VDay and Congrats my love!

Marquez later retweeted sports writer Greg Rosenstein:
