Daniel Cormier And Phil Hawes Get Into Heated Confrontation In UFC Octagon


Deron Winn, the former fighter’s protege over his dominant victory following a heated confrontation into legendary UFC middleweight fighter Phil Hawes.

Hawes finished off with a second-round TKO victory with the ‘Megatron’ closing the show with a flurry of elbows, leaving his opponent bloodied.

Immediately following his win, Hawes appeared to take on Cormier, who was the Winn’s opponent.

The UFC fighter came off very heated, apparently under the assumption that Cormier thought the Hawks would be an easy win for Deron Winn.

Hawkes yelled at Cormier across the octagon: “You picked the wrong opponent. You picked the wrong opponent, you know what I’m talking about.

“I’ll be cool off and you can fight me next week.”

Referee Herb Dean quickly got in the way of defying the two, and the gentleman, Cormier responded in the most calm and teacher-like manner of the situation.

The UFC commentator explained that he is not a matchmaker and simply has no fight or put on a fight.

While saying ‘pick the fights’, asking him to be ‘respectful’, before telling him: “Hey, you didn’t beat me.”

Cormier added: “Look what happened, why would I want this fight?

“You can do better than that.”

It appeared Hawkes’ emotions in the heat of the moment got the better of him and he immediately calmed down and realized he was wrong.

Hawes immediately apologized to DC, before shaking his hand as Fortune cooler heads prevailed.

I mean who wouldn’t back down when one of the legends of the game gives you a stern talk.

A post-fight interview on ‘No Hype’ clarified the confrontation later.

He said: “It’s just a misunderstanding on my part, you know, ’cause’ DC is such a role model for me. Do you know what I mean? Two-weight world champion and just a freaking stellar dude. So there was a little miscommunication, wrong place, wrong time. I apologize, ‘DC’. Don’t beat me up. “

Phil Hawes had quite the night, which kicked off with an iconic theme song from Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

Talking about the reaction to the theme song, he said: “The people loved it huh.

“I just feel like The Rock’s an icon and I’m a huge fan, I knew the people would love it, and I’m going to stick with it.

“As a kid growing up, ‘If You Smell What The Rock is Cooking’ it’s iconic.”
