“All About That Bass” parodies must be stopped — the song is already a parody of itself! — but apparently Daniel Cormier didn’t get TIME’s memo. He’s rebounding from a recent loss to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones with a version of Meghan Trainor’s inescapable smash that celebrates his love for all things chicken and cake.

The Popeyes shout-out might strike viewers as some subtle product placement (and maybe it is, since everything feels like a marketing hoax these days), but Cormier is a well-known Popeyes fan. Once, while dieting to make the light heavyweight division last year, he received a taunting box of Popeyes from opponent Dan Henderson. Mostly, though, the video is designed to promote the 7th annual Fighters Only World MMA Awards, which take place Wednesday.
