Jake Paul is on cloud nine after notching a knockout win over former UFC star Ben Askren.
After the fight, a lot of people have been calling Paul out for a future fight, and Jake is also mapping out who he might face in his next event. At the top of that list is Daniel Cormier, who was actively rooting for Askren during the fight.

“Daniel Cormier (was saying) 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, I can’t believe you did that to the MMA community.’ Shut the f**k up b***h. I’ll beat the f**k out of your fat ass too, just like Stipe did, Cleveland sh*t. I’ll beat the f**k out of Daniel Cormier.”

Now, Daniel Cormier is responding to Jake Paul’s request for a fight.
“But my immediate reaction was, ‘I can’t stand this kid.’ So it works! I can’t stand this kid! But who punches down? You don’t punch down to somebody.
I’m the guy that’s in the Hall of Fame. I’m the guy that won two world championships at the same time.I’m not gonna punch down to some kid that’s on YouTube that’s, like, ‘Fight me!’ Like, why? What have you done to earn the right to fight me?” Cormier said via BroBible.
Daniel Cormier has no desire to fight Jake Paul, and I’m kind of with him. What would Cormier gain by fighting Jake Paul? If he wins, he did what he should have, and if he loses than he’s an embarrassment.
Paul will have to look for his next opponent elsewhere.
