The two fighters were recently seen together after the UFC 230 workouts, where DC issued a challenge to Weidman in a game of Madden.
“Hey, look, this is what happens when you knock out Anderson Silva,” Cormier joked while handing Weidman some dough. “I won by decision, so I don’t have that money. Listen, here’s the deal, there are beautiful women in the world: Jennifer Lopez – who is just a dream to every man. If I had to go meet her right now, I couldn’t make it. And I want Weidman and Madden, more than I want to kiss Jennifer Lopez. I couldn’t make it, I just can’t make it. I wan’t to beat him so bad. This guy, let me tell you something... Anybody that oversells like you can’t be very good. Tomorrow, after weigh-ins. You’ll be drinking all day. I’ll come to your room. I promise I’ll have water, gallons and jugs waiting for you.Hey, lets raise the ante. Every touchdown you score? $1000. I’m shutting this dude out, man! I’m the king of Madden! I run this Madden UFC shit!”
There is no official record for the most touchdowns scored in a single game of Madden, which just released its latest incarnation of the video game this past August. The UFC 230 official and ceremonial weigh-ins are now complete, so the UFC fighters could be playing each other as you read this.
UFC 230 takes place on Saturday, November 3 from Madison Square Garden in New York, New York with Daniel Cormier and Derrick Lewis headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
