The New Orleans Saints were robbed of going to the Super Bowl, and you better believe Daniel Cormier is none too pleased.

The Saints lost to the Los Angeles Rams 23-20 in overtime of Sunday's NFC championship game after a terrible no-call on a blatant pass interference in the final 2 minutes of regulation ensured the Rams had time to tie up the game before sealing the deal in overtime.

In case you missed it, take a look at this video and photo of the play in question (via Twitter):


On obvious pass interference, right? Cormier, a Louisiana native and Saints fan, pretty much echoed the internet with his take on the play (via Twitter).

It probably doesn't help the UFC heavyweight champion to hear that the defender on the play, Nickell Robey-Coleman, flat-out said "hell yeah" he committed pass interference on the play.

So in case football isn't your thing, the New England Patriots also clinched another Super Bowl berth with a 37-31 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime of the AFC championship game. One of the key plays in that game was the Chiefs coming through with an interception that would've ended it in the final 2 minutes of regulation, only to have it called back on a neutral-zone infraction.

That led Cormier to tweet this Sunday night:

I'm so salty right now!!! https://t.co/owFX4rT7Z2
