DANIEL CORMIER IS ALL IN FOR JAKE PAUL FIGHT, BUT UFC STAR HAS “ONE CONDITION”

WHO IS NEXT?

Ever since Paul’s first-round knockout over Ben Askren, social media has been anxiously awaiting news on his next opponent.

While other internet celebrities threw their name into the hat, none have generated interest quite like DC.

The former UFC double champ first addressed the idea on an April 19 episode of the DC & Helwani show.

After coming face to face at UFC 261 over the weekend, however, things are a little different now.

Cormier is actually open to a potential fight. Though it has to happen on one condition - it “must be an MMA fight.”

This kid wants to fight? Ok, but it’ll be a mixed martial arts competition, at 43 years old, bad back and everything, I’m going to torture him. I’m going to smash him, I’m going to hurt him.

Perhaps with enough time, Paul can talk himself into boxing one of UFC’s all-time greats.
