Daniel Cormier is a former American professional mixed martial artist. He is also a commentator for the UFC. Cormier was recently criticized for a comment he made during UFC 270 that he did not expect to land the way it did.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt and Conor McGregor’s training partner, Dillon Danis, posted a video on Twitter of Cormier’s commentary during the third round of UFC 270’s Francis Ngannou vs. Ciryl Gane. He later he deleted the tweet. The two heavyweights fought for undisputed gold on Saturday night and Ngannou left the Octagon as the victor.
What surprised most viewers was the way The Predator earned the win. Ngannou is known for his terrifying striking power and speed. But he made use of his grappling to control Gane on the ground for large portions of the final three rounds.
Cormier was also surprised to see Ngannou using his ground game. “Oh my goodness, Francis is doing Jiu-Jitsu,” Cormier said during the broadcast. “He’s doing really well.”
In the tweet Danis slammed Cormier’s commentary. He tweeted “Worst in the game,” along with the laughing with tears emoji. “So I am watching this replay of Cirya Gane and I don’t know if lot of you all got this but Daniel Cormier is fool for this” he says in the video.
