Donald Cerrone Says Cormier Fought ‘Like A F*g’ Against Anderson Silva (Video)
Talk about a public relations nightmare.
During a UFC Fan Expo Q&A, UFC veteran Donald Cerrone answered a question in the worst way possible that he will surely get criticized for.
After UFC 200 concluded, one fan asked Cerrone & CM Punk what their favorite fight of International Fight Week was, with Cerrone going with Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Claudia Gadelha, while Punk said Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar. Cerrone quickly changed the subject to what was the worst fight and it got crazy from there.
Here’s the back-and-forth between Cerrone & CM Punk on Daniel Cormier’s win over Anderson Silva.
Cerrone: “What about the worst fight?”
CM Punk: “The worst fight?”
Cerrone: “Your boy, DC. Terrible!”
CM Punk: “What?”
Cerrone: “Terrible. How are you going to give up weight and then fight like a f*g, man?”
*applause breaks out in the audience*
CM Punk: “Wait a second. You and everybody else who clapped for that were the same people who were cheering when Brock would take Hunt down, and do the exact same thing DC did to Anderson.”
Cerrone: “That’s different. That was Brock.”
CM Punk: “It’s the same thing!”
Cerrone: “Yeah but Anderson is giving up 30 pounds, flies in, two days notice, fights [Cormier], you’re — f*cking stand and fight, motherf*cker!”
CM Punk: “Hey, I get it! Everybody’s disappointed. They want to see Anderson Silva do some ninja shit. But if I’m standing across from him, I don’t want to see him do ninja shit. I’m gonna take his ass down.”
