Daniel Cormier seems to have had enough of Jake Paul. In the clip above the retired UFC star is seen getting into a heated debate with Jake Paul at UFC 261. Jake’s on a good run with wins over Nate Robinson and Ben Askren but there comes a line that you don’t want to cross. This may be that line.
Paul, who attended the event with NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown, was receiving “f–k Jake Paul” chants from the crowd, which Joe Rogan noted during ESPN’s broadcast. Cormier, who’s also part of the broadcast, said he “pointed at [Paul] and said ‘don’t play with me,’ because I’ll smack him in the face. He’s right there. I’ll slap him. I don’t play those games, Joe.”
Cormier, 42, then went over to Paul, 24, and had a heated exchange with the YouTube star that was broken up by security.
Last Monday on his ESPN show with Ariel Helwani, Cormier — a former UFC heavyweight and light heavyweight champion — responded to Paul calling him out for a fight in a tweet in which he called Cormier “fat boy.”
