Video: Arnold Schwarzenegger backstage at UFC 187, ribs Daniel Cormier over championship belly

Cormier gets terminated at the 2:38 mark.

"Yew trimmed dowen, I almust saw da six pa-hack."

Daniel Cormier was crowned new light heavyweight champion after submitting Anthony Johnson in the UFC 187 pay-per-view (PPV) main event last Saturday night (May 23, 2015) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada (highlights here).

And to the victor belong the spoils.

That includes an impromptu pat on the back from Hollywood icon and former governor of Calee-fornia, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who couldn't help but admire the former heavyweight's new-and-improved physique, even if he still can't see those abdominal muscles.

Hey, a man's got to know his limitations.

Next thing you know they'll be sharing a hotel room or exchanging cutesy tweets during the events. I guess it beats crowning champions in the wrong weight class and even worse, the wrong promotion.

That said, there's something about seeing him and "DC" on the same screen ... do I smell a Twins sequel?!?
