UFC’s next gen Aussie star Tai Tuivasa is about to face former heavyweight champ Junior Dos Santos this weekend.He has already stepped up to limelight with great performances inside the octagon as well as with antics outside the octagon which involve drinking beer from multiple shoes which he had performed after his victory against Andre Arlovski at UFC 225.
Tuivasa stated that it’s a traditional thing for people in Australia and they call it as a ‘shoey’.Well just a day ago in UFC Tonight show on Fox the reigning heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier also executed a shoey by drinking beer out of a Reebok shoe.

Along with Karyn Bryant and Kenny Florian,DC was there discussing Tuivasa’s shoey performance at UFC 225. A funny Twitter poll was conducted where the Twitterati wanted Cormier to actually do a shoey.Cormier accepted it and performed it and even made host Karyn Bryant to do it. Although he couldn’t persuade Florian to perform the shoey.
That’s what DC said,”I never heard of a “shoey” until Tuivasa came along because I’m an ignorant American and I only care about what’s in front of me. Namely, strip malls and chain restaurants, staples of any good New Jersey town.Tai ,u are f****** genius.”
