Daniel Cormier body-slams Houston Rockets mascot

Former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier is in Houston, Texas for UFC 271 this weekend.

While the future UFC Hall of Famer will not be competing inside the octagon, Cormier still managed to get into a fight…. of sorts.

While attending the Houston Rockets basketball game on Thursday, the team’s Mascot “Clutch” picked a fight with D.C.

With Cormier’s walkout song (Lil Wayne’s – Right Above It) playing over the loud speaker, Cormier threw a shot to Clutch, then picked him up and bodyslammed him down to the arena floor.

Check it out.

The Houston Rockets would go on to lose the game against the Toronto Raptors 139-120.
