Daniel Cormier doesn’t want to fight Jake Paul, but if it has to happen, it’s going to be in Cormier’s world. The two have taken several jibes at each other, with the most recent news coming from UFC 261.

Jake Paul was in attendance at the event, and Daniel Cormier was certainly not very pleased by his presence. The MMA community also seemed to side with Cormier as they broke out with chants of F**k Jake Paul. This happened during the bout between Randy Brown and Alex Oliveira in the preliminary card at UFC 261. Daniel Cormier took it a notch further and has threatened to slap Jake Paul in the face.

He said, “There are a lot of things that I can handle in my life. One is like I feel like this guy’s being like that, disrespectful, talking in a way that I don’t feel he would do to my face. I can’t deal with that. So I was sitting at the table and somebody was like, ‘Jake Paul’s here.’ So I look behind me and he’s like making faces at me and waving at me. I’m like, ‘What in the world is happening? I’m not gonna play your games. Don’t mess with me.”

Daniel Cormier further said if Jake really wants to fight him then he should come over to MMA. Daniel said, “If he wants to actually fight with me, fight me in mixed martial arts and then I’ll fight him all the way down at 205. I’m living fat and happy and healthy. I’ll go all the way down to 205 to fight this kid in mixed martial arts.”

While he doubled and tripled down on not feeling compelled to fight Paul. Cormier clarified that if the business has to be taken care of, he will step into the cage with him.
