Daniel Cormier’s Reaction To Getting Caught On His Phone At UFC 248 Is Pure Comedy Gold

UFC star Daniel Cormier had a priceless reaction when he realised that he was caught out on camera while using his phone.

The 40-year-old MMA veteran hasn't fought inside the octagon since he lost the heavyweight championship to Stipe Miocic at UFC 241 last August.

But Cormier did make an appearance on commentary for Saturday's UFC 248 in Las Vegas.

Eagle-eyed fans spotted a segment where 'DC' was busy using his phone, only for the UFC star not to realise that he was on camera.

When Cormier hilariously realised that he was being filmed, he put his phone down and put his arms on the table before putting on a serious face for the camera.

UFC fans have found the segment hilarious, with many of them not blaming 'DC' for missing the 'uneventful' main-event clash between Israel Adesanya and Yoel Romero.

One Reddit user wrote: "Omg hahaha for me that's the highlight of UFC 248 now."

While another fan posted: "Also Joe's face like 'That camera is gunna be on y-yep, it's on you now.'"

A third fan argued: "I mean, who the hell can blame him?"

And a fourth added: "This is me when my gf is talking to me and I'm just nodding with my head in my phone then look up and she got a right face on."

Adesanya successfully defended the middleweight championship against Romero, though fans vented their disappointment for the lacklustre clash at UFC 248.

However, the 'Last Stylebender' did walk away with a sizeable pay package for his unanimous decision victory on the night.

The main-event clash was overshadowed by the epic showdown that Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk put on the UFC women's strawweight championship.

Jedrzejczyk, who suffered a horrific hematoma to the head, lost on split decision to strawweight champ Weili.
