Real Quick, Retro Pick: Daniel Cormier is all about that chicken and cake.
“I’m all about that cake, bout that cake… and chicken”
Today’s Real Quick, Retro Pick is a couple of years old. Daniel Cormier is very outspoken regarding his food romance. More specifically, being a lover of Popeyes Chicken.
If Daniel Cormier was Superman, Popeye’s would be his Kryptonite. Only this Kryptonite makes you stronger. He did himself no favors by consistently proclaiming his love for the Louisiana based business. During his brutal weight cuts to make the light heavyweight limit of 205 pounds, Cormier spoke of Popeyes like a Kardashian speaks about plastic surgery.
Although, being so vocal about his love for food has worked against him. Prior to their UFC 173 fight in 2014, Dan Henderson brought a bag of Popeyes Chicken into Cormier’s practice session, while DC was cutting weight.
Cormier seemed happy to mock himself for the 7th Fighter’s Only Awards in the Real Quick video. Have fun bleaching your eyeballs after watching.
