Jake Paul had an altercation with Daniel Cormier at UFC 261, but WWE Hall of Famer The Iron Sheik also threatened Paul during the PPV. Dana White leaked a ‘gross’ Chris Weidman photo.
The Iron Sheik tweeted, “JAKE PAUL YOU BETTER HOPE YOU NEVER SEE ME BUBBA STAY IN YOUR LANE YOU CRACKER BARREL JABRONI #UFC261.”
The crowd chanted ‘F**k Jake Paul.’ Daniel Cormier said on commentary he’d slap him because he doesn’t play games. Paul and Cormier then exchanged words.
Paul tweeted, “Daniel Cormier online ‘Imma Smack Jake Paul when I see him’ Daniel Cormier in person… Thinking face.”
Nicolas Gonzalez tweeted, “Lmfao @jakepaul is at a UFC fight and stole all the attention from the matches tonight.
Didn’t even know there was a UFC fight until the ‘F Jake Paul’ chants went viral Face with tears of joyFace with tears of joyFace with tears of joy
They might have to cut him a check lol.”
Dave Meltzer wrote, “Who was the last heel to get the level of heat as Jake Paul? If for some reason he got into the Octagon they’d be throwing drinks and worse at him.”
Meltzer added, “Chael in Brazil, Maybe Shawn Michaels when they had to cancel two shows before the main event. Jake Roberts at La Revancha. I’ve never seen anything like that live.”
