Former two-division UFC champion Daniel Cormier is prepared to sic Jake Paul on Dillon Danis — this and much more craziness on Tuesday's social media roundup.
Jake Paul ft. Daniel Cormier vs. Dillon Danis
Speaking to Ariel Helwani on The DC and Helwani show, Cormier gave his opinions on how he thinks a boxing match between Paul and Danis would go.
"Conor [McGregor] beats Jake Paul in a boxing match, but Jake Paul beats Dillon Danis," Cormier asserted. "Dillon does not need to fight Jake Paul, because he'll get beat up."
These words from DC did not go down too well with Danis, a Bellator star and Conor McGregor teammate. Danis posted a photoshopped picture of himself getting the better of Cormier in the Octagon.
Cormier clapped back with a threat of his own.
Jake Paul is coming off a brutal KO win over former three-time NBA slam dunk contest champion Nate Robinson on Saturday's Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. card. Afterwards, he called out both of the SBG Ireland teammates Conor McGregor and Dillon Danis.
Paul has been calling out Dillon Danis for the past few years and the two have had plenty of spats on social media. Danis had this to say following Paul's second-round KO win over Nate Robinson.
you just fought a retired nba reject be careful what you wish for little guy @jakepaul— Dillon Danis (@dillondanis) November 29, 2020

Fighter-turned-media personality Brendan Schaub has a fairly impossible prediction on how he thinks the fight will go down.

Inoue way you're stealing from this guy!
And to finish off today's social media roundup, watch MMA legend Enson Inoue chasing off a thief at his store.
A guy just tried to steal a money clip from my store. I chased him out and when he got down the street he yelled threats back at me like how he’s going to come back and cut me up! Lord help him if he comes back. He better kill me before I get my hands on him. pic.twitter.com/fQ3gFI7D7u— Enson Inoue (@ensoninoue) November 22, 2020
