YOUTUBER Jake Paul has trolled UFC legend Daniel Cormier by tweeting a picture of him crying during a fight.
The 24-year-old shared the image after Cormier tipped Ben Askren to win their upcoming bout.

Paul and Askren had an altercation at a recent press conference, with the latter gently facepalming the former.
The YouTuber responded with a soft jab to Askren’s midriff and a slight push.
Cormier was not impressed with Paul’s response, tweeting: “I just saw Jake Paul reaction to Ben Askren palming his face and I am now convinced that Ben wins.
“He looked like he wanted to throw a punch and then settled on slapping his a**? Ben smashes this dude.”
Paul was quick to respond to the former UFC star, tweeting the teary image.
He faces retired UFC welterweight Askren on April 17, at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Although Cormier doesn’t have much faith in Paul, recording artist Snoop Dogg does – making a $2million bet with UFC boss Dana White.
Askren, 36, has enjoyed a long career in MMA and wrestling but will make his professional boxing debut against Paul.
Paul, meanwhile, has won both his previous fights – defeating former NBA basketball star Nate Robinson in November.
He could face Tommy Fury in his next fight, with Fury’s cousin backing the Love Island star to win.
