Video: Things Got Heated Between Daniel Cormier And A Rival On Saturday Night

During the press conference following UFC 187 on Saturday night, there was a confrontation between light heavyweight rivals Daniel Cormier and Ryan Bader. The former had just beaten Anthony Johnson to claim the vacant light heavyweight belt.

The new champion and Bader were originally due to fight each other at UFC Fight Night New Orleans on June 6th but Jon Jones being stripped of his title and so being unable to take on Anthony Johnson meant that Cormier stepped in to fill the gap.

Bader accused Cormier of dodging him. This was how the 'DC' responded.

I didn't get out of any fights. Not once did I say that I didn't want to fight Ryan Bader. I asked them to fight you because I just wanted an easy paycheck. I knew. I wanted to fight you. I asked to fight you.

They said 'Daniel, what do you want?' I said I want the easiest fight in the division - Ryan Bader.

Just give me my paychecks now and get your ass out of here, this is my press conference. Get the fuck out of here.

A closer view of the confrontation below.
