UFC legend Daniel Cormier claims he would 'KILL' Jake Paul in fight after YouTuber labelled him 'fat' in Twitter bust-up

April 22, 2021

FUTURE UFC Hall-of-Famer Daniel Cormier has shut down talk of a fight with Jake Paul, insisting he'd 'kill' the YouTuber.

Former Disney star Paul called out DC last weekend shortly after his brutal first-round knockout of ex-UFC welterweight Ben Askren.

Cormier was branded a 'fat boy' by Paul after voicing his anger at the 24-year-old's disrespect towards former 170lb champ Tyron Woodley.

But DC insists he wouldn't contemplate fighting the social media star, saying during the latest episode of the DC & Helwani Show. “This dude would never fight me.

"I would kill him. Why would I ever fight someone like that?”

“But my immediate reaction was, ‘I can’t stand this kid.’ So it works!

"I can’t stand this kid! But who punches down?

"You don’t punch down to somebody. I’m the guy that’s in the Hall of Fame.

"I’m the guy that won two world championships at the same time.

“I’m not gonna punch down to some kid that’s on YouTube that’s, like, ‘Fight me!’ Like, why?"


Cormier has been irked by Paul mentioning his name, adding: "What have you done to earn the right to fight me?

"So, no, it’s silly and stupid."

The UFC's second simultaneous two-weight world champion would like to see Paul face a proficient striker next and is intrigued by the prospect of Woodley or his American Kickboxing Academy team-mate Luke Rockhold sharing the ring with The Problem Child.

He said: "I would like him to fight Tyron. I would like to see him fight somebody more real. Don’t fight Ben Askren at 190, bloated.

“Fight a middleweight (185 lbs in MMA). Fight Luke Rockhold!

"Let me see you fight Luke Rockhold or somebody like that.

"And then I will not only say that you have base skills, I will say you’re a real fighter. Because right now it’s all pretend. It’s all pretend.”

Paul doubled down on his call out of Cormier during an appearance on brother Logan's Impaulsive podcast, saying: “So many fake motherf*****s in this generation.

“Daniel Cormier, (mimicking) ‘That’s my boy Ben, he’s gonna beat Jake, he pushed him in the face so he’s gonna win now, chirp, chirp, chirp.’

"I knock him out and he’s on Twitter, ‘Ben, are you serious, bro, you went down like that? Ben are you kidding me? Ben, I can’t believe you did that to the MMA community.’

"Shut the f*** up b*. I’ll beat the f**k out of your fat ass too, just like Stipe [Miocic] did. Cleveland s.

"I swear to God, I’ll beat the f**k out of Daniel Cormier.”
