If Jake Paul drove off a cliff, my life wouldn’t change one bit. Before that happens, I think former UFC heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier would like a piece.

A couple of weeks ago, Jake Paul KO’d Ben Askren, possibly one of the worst fighters in MMA history, taking a swipe at Daniel Cormier’s weight after the bout.
“So many fake motherf*****s in this generation,” Jake Paul said. “Daniel Cormier, (mimicking) ‘That’s my boy Ben, he’s gonna beat Jake, he pushed him in the face so he’s gonna win now, chirp, chirp, chirp.’ I knock him out and he’s on Twitter, ‘Ben, are you serious, bro, you went down like that? Ben are you kidding me? Ben, I can’t believe you did that to the MMA community.’ Shut the f*** up b****. I’ll beat the f*** out of your fat ass too, just like Stipe did. Cleveland s***. I swear to God, I’ll beat the f*** out of Daniel Cormier.”
Cormier went over to cash that check after Jake Paul arrived at UFC 261 and Paul just started hugging his white YouTube groupies for support as 15,000 UFC fans chanted ‘Fuck Jake Paul’.

Is Jake Paul a runt? Yup. But give the little puke some credit.
He’s been forcing himself into big purses and huge PPV contracts by acting like an insufferable asshole and UFC boss Dana White is impressed.

Dana’s right. People want to see stuff like this. It’s called ‘Trainwreck Viewing’ and the human brain is wired to appreciate disasters more than anything else. Jake Paul hasn’t captured the imagination of a generation of YouTube weiners, he’s hand-picking guys to fight him and Dana thinks the result is predetermined, which it probably is.
If White allowed Paul/Cormier to happen under the UFC banner, Jake Paul would get fucking MURDERED.
That, I’d pay to see.
