Video: Daniel Cormier and Rashad Evans have beef after FOX cameras stop rolling (Updated)

***UPDATE: Video has been removed, but will be replaced just as soon as a new version becomes available.

They say there's a little bit of truth behind every joke...

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier is buddy-buddy with former 205-pound kingpin Rashad Evans, likely because A) mutual respect and B) they don't have to fight each other (yet).

But "DC" remembers the time when "Suga" asked for him by name and well, that hurt his feelings.

In fact, they were expected to headline the UFC 170 pay-per-view (PPV) event in early 2014, until Evans got injured and had to withdraw. That brought us the caffeinated stylings of Patrick Cummins, who was silver platter'd by his former training partner, but hung around long enough to become relevant.

As for Cormier and Evans?

The former battles Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 192 in October, while the latter takes on Ryan Bader at the very same event. If both emerge victorious, then we'll see if "DC" is still "submissive" when it comes to throwing down.
