Just in case you had any doubts about whether or not the beef between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier were real, watch this video.
Jones and Cormier did an interview on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” earlier this week to promote their upcoming Sept. 27 fight at UFC 178, but the real fireworks came during the off-air portion of their exchange when they were done with their segment.
This video emerged on Friday and it shows the heated, profanity-laced, chilling conversation the two had. It started with Jones calling Cormier a “pu**y,” and Cormier responding by calling Jones fake for trying to play the nice guy in the public eye.
The line of Cormier calling Jones fake continued until Cormier said he wished he could enter Jones’ booth to spit in his face. Though Jones remained calm after that threat, he turned quickly and literally said he would kill Cormier if he spit in his face.
This is some of the craziest, realest, wildest video I’ve seen. The language is not safe for work, so the video has been placed below.
In case the video is pulled, here is a transcription of the conversation via Bloody Elbow:
JJ: Hey pussy are you still there?
DC: I’m here. I’m here. You’re just the fakest person. I actually admire that you can actually be this fake, and when the TV comes on, how you can just change. It’s like you’re a chameleon. It’s awesome. It’s unbelievable…
JJ: Hey, listen, I’m a professional. The fact that you’re a pussy hasn’t changed.
DC: It’s unbelievable how fake you can really be. Like, you are just such a fucking pussy. My god, it is amazing. It is amazing. But, you know what? Hat’s off to you, you got a great PR person.
JJ: Thank you.
DC: Because they do a great job with training you. Because, you are just terrible. You’re the fucking scum of the earth. You are a terrible human being, but you can sure turn it on, huh?
JJ: Thank you.
DC: God, you fuck… I wish they would let me next door, so I could spit in your fucking face.
JJ: You know that I would absolutely kill you if you ever did something like that, right?
DC: You could never kill me.
JJ: Oh, I bet you I could.
DC: Then you should try, Jon. You really should try Jon.
JJ: No, I would literally kill you, if you spit in my face.
DC: Yeah, let’s try that Jon.
JJ: Literally kill you.
DC: Let’s try that Jon. I mean, you’re such a…
JJ: I’m not talking about… I’m not saying I will fight you. I’m saying I will kill you if you did some silly shit like that.
DC: Jon, do you think I’m just gonna sit there and let you kill me, Jon? I mean, really?Google+
