Retired UFC superstar Daniel Cormier was challenged to a boxing match by YouTuber Jake Paul over the weekend. The offer occurred on social media after the two stars got into a war of words following Paul’s knockout victory over Ben Askren. Cormier wasn’t happy about the knockout win for Paul, and he also seemed to be upset with Paul for how the YouTuber and his entourage treated UFC star Tyron Woodley before the fight.

Paul challenged Cormier, “Okay fat boy. So me vs you…”.


Paul vs. Cormier?

It all began when Cormier, 42, reacted to Paul’s first-round knockout on Saturday night by suggesting “somebody got to do something about this Jake Paul”.

You can watch that reaction below.

Later, Cormier suggested he hoped Paul would follow Asrken’s post-fight advice of fighting former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley next. He tweeted, “I mean the way this dude talked to T- wood makes my skin crawl. All these kids are going to get taught a lesson I swear. And I can’t wait for it, @JLeonLove you can’t fight. Better respect dudes like @TWooodley before he puts his hands on you. He ain’t Ben!”.

But Paul suggested instead of facing Woodley next, he could just jump right up to fighting Cormier in a boxing bout. He posted, “Okay fat boy. So me vs you & J vs. T.??”.

Additionally, he promised to cook Cormier up “Cleveland style”.

When a fan suggested Cormier was “washed” and that Paul would win a boxing match between the two stars. Cormier responded, “Lmao. I don’t even know what world I live in anymore. I honestly don’t”.

Cormier was reacting to the post-fight interaction Paul and pro boxer J-leon Love had with former champ Woodley before the fight on Saturday.

Woodley accused Love of “clout chasing” and the fighter responded that Woodley might not about MMA but that he wasn’t a boxer.

“You don’t know about these,” Love said as he held up boxing gloves.

Later, the two decided to make a bet about a potential Woodly vs. Love boxing match.

“Let’s make a bet,” Paul said

More Info About Each Star

Paul is 3-0 with 3 KOs. He’s already one of the biggest superstars in the sport, and now he’s ready to step up to bigger challenges.

Cormier is a former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion. He’s one of only seven fighters in UFC history to win two divisional championships across a career, and he’s one of only to become UFC “champ champ” by holding both at the same time. Cormier retired after losing the rubbermatch last year to Stipe Miococ at UFC 252.

Love, 33, is a former 168-pound contender. He’s won regional titles but never one of boxing’s many world titles, at least among those considered legitimate championships in the sport. Love hasn’t fought since 2019.

Woodley, 39, is a former UFC welterweight champ. He’s lost four straight fights, and now could be headed into a boxing right to face either Love or Paul.
