Whether or not the rivalry and mutual hatred between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier is real or manufactured -- at this point there's not much reason to believe it's the latter -- the drama leading up to this weekend's UFC 182 main event has made for gripping viewing and reading.

If you wanted any more evidence, ex-UFC fighter Tyson Griffin posted this video on Instagram showing the two parties yelling at each other, with Griffin clearly yelling to Jones "Why are you coming at a coach?"

If you thought it was incredibly intense now, there's still time for more chaos to go down at tomorrow evening's weigh-ins.

UPDATE: And here's another video uploaded by Mr. Griffin.
