Video: Hot mic catches Jon Jones & Daniel Cormier unleashing more verbal venom (full transcription included)

New, 577 comments

You have to see (or at least read) this incredible off-TV exchange between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier, which includes a death threat.

The SportsCenter interview you saw earlier this week between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier, hours after their now infamous brawl at the UFC 178 media day event in Las Vegas, pales in comparison to this newly released off-air footage that captures the astounding levels of hatred between these two. Of the 1 1/2 minute long exchange, the highlight is undeniably Cormier saying he'd spit in Jones' face, which then turned into a death threat from Jones.

Seeing as this obviously wasn't aired on TV and the clip itself is unlisted on Youtube, there's a good chance it might be taken down. Fear not my friends, as Bloody Elbow's Zane Simon has the full transcription of this remarkable video.

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?

Can this calendar speed up to September 27th already?
