A bit of Hollywood stopped by the set of UFC Tonight on Wednesday, as hosts Kenny Florian and Daniel Cormier got the chance to chat with Ice Cube and Charlie Day about their new comedy Fist Fight.
In addition to promoting their film, the actors weighed in on some of the hottest #MMA topics dominating the headlines right now, including whether #RondaRousey will return to the Octagon, as well as the possible matchup between #UFC champion #ConorMcGregor and boxing star Floyd Mayweather Jr. Both men seemed excited about the potential fight and hope that it comes together.
"Who don't want to see that man?" Ice Cube said. "People will see people scrap, it don't matter if you come from the same sport. They want to scrap, let them scrap."
The rapper turned actor added that McGregor and Mayweather could take turns fighting in each athlete's sport, but the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia star thinks the finances behind the bout will be astronomical no matter what.
"They split two billion dollars right down the middle and we never see either of them again," Day said.
The conversation eventually turned to the celebrities' past on screen collaborations with UFC fighters. Ice Cube gave welterweight champion Tyron Woodley a nice shout out for his work on Straight Outta Compton, while Day told a hilarious behind the scenes story from his time with Donald Cerrone on a recent episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
The comedy TV star revealed that "Cowboy" can vomit on cue, which came in handy during a scene involving the gang's grotesque sports drink Fight Milk.
"Cerrone could make himself throw up on cue," Day said. "We were like, 'You're drinking this Fight Milk stuff and it's making you sick,' and he's like, 'Ya'll want me to throw it up? I can just make myself throw up man.' He was just vomiting on cue."
"He's a method actor that guy," Day added. "I think he's got a good career in acting ahead of him."
Fist Fight hits theaters on February 17.
