California earthquake hits while Daniel Cormier is recording show on ESPN

Former UFC heavyweight and light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier had quite the experience today.  Cormier, like many others felt the California earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.1 that hit the Bay Area late Tuesday morning, but his reaction was caught on camera.

DC had been filming his “DC & RC” ESPN show with former NFL defensive back Ryan Clark — when he suddenly and abruptly stopped his train of thought to tell Clark he was experiencing an earthquake!

“Oh, my God, Ryan, there’s an earthquake,” the former UFC champion said. “There’s an actual earthquake going on right now. My whole office is shaking right now.”

“Shut the hell up,” Clark responded. “Are you good,” Clark asked Cormier.

“I’m good, I’m good. It’s not a big one,” Cormier said about the situation. “It’s just like a little one. Every now and then, you kind of get the rockies.”

Watch Cormier’s reaction below:

According to the U.S. geological survey, the temblor struck at 11:42 a.m. about nine miles from Seven Trees and 12 miles east of San Jose.

Tuesday’s quake was the largest to hit the Bay Area since 2014’s South Napa earthquake – a magnitude 6.0.

Cormier retired from professional mixed martial arts competition with a record of 22-3.  In his last two fights, Cormier was defeated by former UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic in a headlining trilogy bout at UFC 252 in August 2020.
