Daniel Cormier made it clear that he had a strong desire to remain on the UFC 170 card after his original opponent, Rashad Evans, pulled out of their fight due to injury. The next day, Cormier got his wish and will now lock horns with UFC newcomer Patrick Cummins as the co-main event on the Las Vegas pay-per-view.
In the video above, Cormier and Cummins exchange words ahead of their newly scheduled fight. Judging by the tone, it’s clear these guys don’t really like each other all that much.
The two have some history from their amateur wrestling days, and it appears Cummins struck a nerve on D.C.
“You need to be careful with with you’re saying,” Cormier said, addressing Cummins on FOX Sports Live. “Not only has he crossed the line, you’ve completely put yourself in my crosshairs … You’re going to suffer for your words.”
