Justin Gaethje was not happy with how dismissive Daniel Cormier was of his fight with Michael Chandler.

After Islam Makhachev made quick work of Dan Hooker this past Saturday at UFC 267 with a first-round kimura, Cormier said Makhachev should be next in line for a title shot.

Saturday, former title challengers Gaethje and Chandler will tussle in a high-stakes matchup at UFC 268, which long has been expected to deliver the next No. 1 contender for a shot at the winner of champion Charles Oliveira and Dustin Poirier.

After Cormier raved about Makhachev’s performance, Gaethje had a rebuttal. Check out their back-and-forth below:
