Joe Rogan reveals Daniel Cormier told Jake Paul he'd 'f**k him up' before security ended heated UFC 261 clash
DANIEL CORMIER threatened to 'f**k' Jake Paul up during their heated clash last month, according to UFC commentator Joe Rogan.
Former two-division champion Cormier had a heated exchange with the YouTuber last month at UFC 261 in Jacksonville, Florida.
A furious Cormier pointed his finger in Paul's face and had to be separated from the former Disney star, who had branded him a 'fat boy' a few days earlier.
Rogan recalled his fellow commentator's clash with the younger Paul brother during a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, saying: “DC said, ‘Take my f***ing name out of your mouth.
"'I’m not a kid, I will f*** you up,’ and he was like, ‘Yikes.’
"Look, it’s f***ing former UFC heavyweight champion of the world. That’s not what you want."
Paul, who knocked out retired MMA star Ben Askren in a boxing match last month, was greeted with a chorus of boos by fans in attendance at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena.
And he repeatedly had to endure defeating chants of 'f**k Jake Paul'.

Rogan, however, reckons the 24-year-old wasn't bothered by the reception he received.
He continued: “Let me tell you something, we were in Florida, Jacksonville, sold out arena, and they were all chanting ‘F*** Jake Paul.’
"He’s filming it. He’s got his phone out, he’s like, ‘Yeah!’ (Because what he’s hearing is) money. He’s hearing ‘Cha-Ching! Cha-Ching!’
"He’s making so much money, dude. He said it was 1.5 million PPV buys when he knocked out Ben Askren.
"I don’t know if that’s true, Dana White says it’s nonsense, but maybe. He doesn’t – who has the f***ing receipts?
"If he’s lying, why didn’t he say 2 million, why didn’t he say 3 million? Why’d he say 1.5?
"Maybe he’s telling the truth and if he’s telling the truth, they made a f***ing considerable amount of money.
"That’s bigger by more than double the very legitimate, three title fight UFC card of this past weekend because that apparently got 700,000 buys.
"Granted, these are 700,000 ESPN+ verified, absolute buys. There’s no bulls***."
Paul recalled his encounter with Cormier during an interview with ESPN, in which he claimed the future UFC Hall of Famer of 'b****ed out' of his vow to 'slap' him.
“He said ‘If I ever see Jake Paul, I’m going to slap him. I’m going to slap him in the face’, and then he sees me.
"I’m right there, arm’s length and he does nothing. It’s funny, it’s funny to me.
“I saw he said something about like, ‘Oh, I couldn’t have beat him up because I was at work and I would have gotten in trouble’.
"Like, bro, are you about your s**t? Or are you not about your s**t?
"Dana White wouldn’t have done anything if you wanted to lay hands on me.
“You had your chance, and you bitched out, and it’s embarrassing, and you’re an embarrassment, and you’re not a man of your word.”
