YouTube sensation Jake Paul has fired back at Daniel Cormier.
Paul hasn’t been shy in trading barbs with MMA fighters. Recently, Paul knocked out former Bellator and ONE Championship titleholder Ben Askren in a boxing match.
Cormier has given Paul props for knowing the fundamentals of boxing. With that said, Cormier believes he’d “kill” Paul in a fight.
During a recent edition of the imPAULsive podcast, Paul put Cormier on blast (via MMAFighting.com).
“So many fake (expletive) 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 (expletive) up (expletive). I’ll beat the (expletive) out of your fat ass too, just like Stipe did. Cleveland (expletive). I swear to God, I’ll beat the (expletive) out of Daniel Cormier.”
Cormier retired from MMA competition following his trilogy fight with Stipe Miocic. He has said he won’t entertain fighting Paul because he feels the YouTuber has done nothing to deserve it.
