While many talked about Ronda Rousey’s “star” power bringing in Will Smith and others to UFC 170 Saturday night, Daniel Cormier wasn’t short on some well-known fans talking about him.
On Twitter, both rapper Lil Wayne and actor Omar Epps gave shout-outs to Cormier after his impressive first round victory over Patrick Cummins.
Let's go big DC Daniel Cormier!

Cormier, who made his light heavyweight debut vs. Cummins, responded to both, replying to Epps, “This is so cool.”
“How cool is (it) that Lil Wayne watched my fight and tweeted,” Cormier wrote. “Louisiana people stand together. Thanks my brother.”
