Video: Arnold Schwarzenegger crashes Daniel Cormier interview, makes belly joke

New, comments

Arnold Schwarzenegger was in a joking mood when he met up with new UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier (during an interview) after UFC 187.

You likely know who Arnold Schwarzenegger is by now - seven-time Mr. Olympia, action movie star, ex-governor of California, etc. He's also a big fight fan, and attended UFC 187 in Las Vegas this past weekend. He made his presence known during a backstage interview after the show, where Megan Olivi was talking to new light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.

And he brought jokes.

The Governator is invited into the interview at the 2:38 mark of the video above to congratulate Cormier on his big win over Anthony Johnson in the main event. After a quick congrats, he went for the comedy:

"You trimmed down. I almost saw a six-pack!"

Cormier laughed graciously, and they exchanged more pleasantries before Arnie went off into the night. It did pretty much kill the interview though.

Cormier (16-1) is likely to fight Ryan Bader next if Jon Jones doesn't make a return to the sport anytime soon. Schwarzenegger is set to star in Terminator Genisys, which comes out in July, and The Legend of Conan, which should be in theaters next year.
