The feud between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones has already turned physical, but in a video leaked today, the beef between the two light heavyweights has taken another turn.
After a brawl Monday in Las Vegas during a press conference to hype their UFC 178 main event, the fighters appeared on ESPN to publicly apologize for the scuffle.
But after their appearance, the microphones and cameras continued to roll, catching an interesting bit of dialogue between the two light heavyweights.
It begins with Jones asking, “Hey p---y, are you still there?” From there, a brief argument ensues, with Cormier eventually responding: “I wish they would let me next door so I can spit in your f---ing face.”
Jones ends the exchange in a rather disturbing fashion: “I will literally kill you if you spit in my face. Literally kill you.”
The UFC has since pulled down many of the videos that leaked due to copyright issues. The full transcript of the conversation is as follows:
Jones: Hey p---y, are you still there?
Cormier: I'm here. You are just the fakest person! I actually admire that you can be this fake and when the TV comes on you can just change. You're like a chameleon. It's awesome. It's unbelievable.
Jones: Hey, I'm a professional. The fact that you're a p--y hasn't changed.
Cormier: It's unbelievable just how fake you can be! You're such a f-----g p---y! My god! It is amazing! But hats off to you, you got a great PR person. They do a great job training you, because you are just terrible. You're the f-----g scum of the earth. You're a terrible human being, but you can sure turn it on.
Jones: Thank you.
Cormier: I wish they would let me next door so I could spit in your f------g face.
Jones: You know I would absolutely kill you if you ever did something like that.
Cormier: You could never kill me.
Jones: Oh, I bet you I could.
Cormier: Then you should try, Jon. You really should try.
Jones: I would literally kill you if you spit in my face. Literally kill you. I'm not saying I would fight you, I'm saying I would kill you if you did some stupid s--t like that.
Cormier: Jon, do you think I'm just gonna sit there and let you kill me? I mean, really?
UFC 178 takes place on Sept. 27 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and is headlined by the light heavyweight title tilt between Jones and Cormier. The loaded lineup also includes a featherweight clash between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier as well as a bantamweight pairing pitting the returning Dominick Cruz against Takeya Mizugaki.
