It may sound absurd but the former UFC heavyweight champion, Daniel Cormier and Jake Paul have a rivalry going on following the Ben Askren- Jake Paul fight. It started with Daniel Cormier calling out Jake Paul’s training partner, J’Leon Love who insulted Tyron Woodley.
Jake Paul fired back at DC by calling him out for a boxing match. But, the former UFC two-division champion, Daniel Cormier shrugged off Jake Paul’s call-out and said:
“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 like I can’t stand this kid. But, who punches down? You don’t punch down at somebody. I am the guy who is in the Hall of Fame. I am the guy that won two world championships at the same time. What have you done to earn the right to fight me?”
In the latest episode of Impulsive podcast, Jake Paul opened up about his rivalry with Cormier. He criticized DC for turning his back on Ben Askren after the boxing match. Jake Paul said:
“And then just like turned his back on him. So many fake motherf****rs in the generation. Daniel Cormier ‘that’s my boy Ben, he is gonna beat Jake, he pushed him in the face so he is going to win now’. I knocked him out he is on his Twitter ‘Ben, are you serious bro, Ben are you kidding me’. Shut the f**k up. Daniel Cormier, I will beat the fuck out of your fata** too just like Stipe did.”

Logan Paul, however, did not appreciate the comment from Jake Paul about DC as he asked him to retract them. Logan Paul tried to maintain some order in the podcast as he said:
“That’s Daniel Cormier you’re talking about. He is a legend man. That’s Daniel Cormier. Bro, come on.”
But, a fight between Jake Paul and Daniel Cormier is never going to happen. And Paul is well aware of the fact. But, he does not appreciate the comments from Cormier as he says:
“Look I respect him. I think he is great. He had an amazing career. I am appreciative of what he has done for the MMA community. But. don’t switch up on your boy like that. It shows your character”
Well, Jake Paul is doing everything right at the moment. He is calling out the big stars of UFC such as Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz, Dustin Poirier, and he is picking a favorable fight and winning them in brilliant fashion. But, whether can continue doing the same is what most of the fans are intrigued about.
