JAKE PAUL has called out UFC legend Daniel Cormier and labelled him ‘fat boy’ in the process.
The YouTuber was involved in a backstage row with Tyron Woodley ahead of his win over Ben Askren and Cormier slammed Paul for his disrespect.
Askren’s corner man Woodley was in a discussion with Paul about a pre-fight bet.
And Paul’s man J’Leon Love quickly got involved. The discussion descended into an awkward exchange of words with both men subtly suggesting they could beat the other one in a scrap.
Super middleweight boxer Love has a pro record of 34-3-1 and last fought in 2019.
While Woodley has a pro MMA record of 19-7-1.
After the exchange, Cormier took to Twitter to slam the disrespect shown to Woodley.
He wrote: “I mean the way this dude talked to T- wood makes my skin crawl.
“All these kids are going to get taught a lesson I swear. And I can’t wait for it, @JLeonLove you can’t fight.
“Better respect dudes like @TWooodley before he puts his hands on you. He ain’t Ben!”

Love simply replied: “F*** you too!”
Before Paul wrote: “Okay fat boy. So me vs you & J vs. T.??”
But Woodley was having none of it and blasted Paul who seems to be calling out everyone under the sun at the moment.
Woodley tweeted: “Begging so hard to get your prostitute a gig.
“You trying to fight everyone BUT me! When you realise I’m not with the child’s play you froze like winter and started stuttering!
“You want real smoke or you wanna keep padding yo b*** ass record?”
In the actual fight on Saturday night, Paul knocked Askren out inside round one.
And afterwards Tyson Fury heaped praise in the YouTuber calling him fantastic for boxing.
