UFC 170 Video: Daniel Cormier Gets Physical With Patrick Cummins At Press Conference

The co-main event of UFC 170 on Saturday night featuring Daniel Cormier vs Patrick Cummins is quite arguably the most anticipated fight on the card. The light heavyweight fight was made eight days ago when Rashad Evans had to bow out of the fight due to suffering a knee injury in training.

Cummins told UFC President Dana White that while helping train Cormier for the 2004 Olympics, he “broke” Cormier and made him cry. Cormier hasn’t denied that it happened, but you can tell it has agitated him throughout the week.

It came to a head today when they did the pre-fight press conference staredown, when Cormier walked right up to Cummins and shoved him. Cormier then clenched his fist like he was going to punch Cummins, which you can see in the video above.

Daniel Cormier Back On UFC 170, Will Face Newcomer Patrick Cummins

DanielCormiermedia

Last night Rashad Evans had to bow out of his UFC 170 fight next weekend against Daniel Cormier. The UFC also announced that Cormier would be taken off the card. Cormier stated on Twitter that he still wanted to fight next weekend, even if it had to be at heavyweight. You ask and you shall receive.

UFC President Dana White announced today that Cormier will stay on the card and face his former wrestling training partner, UFC newcomer Patrick Cummins.

Cummins is a two-time All-American and national champion runner-up from Penn State University and is undefeated in four career fights. As soon as Evans pulled out of the fight Cummins was asking for the fight on Twitter. Dana White told MMAFighting.com that Cummins told him that he made Cormier cry when they would train together. Cormier told MMAFighting that wasn’t the case at all.

“There’s a lot of pressure that comes with trying to win a gold medal, something that Pat wouldn’t understand since he was only a training partner to me and Kerry McCoy. He wasn’t the guy. I appreciate him stepping up and taking the fight, but we’re going to see who’s going to be crying after we fight next Saturday night.”

The fight will remain the co-main event of the show.
