On Monday, Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier went on SportsCenter for a thought-provoking interview about the
totally awesome! regrettable press-conference brawl that had gone down just hours beforehand. Though Cormier fired some heated barbs during the segment (“He’s a punk, he’s a liar, he’s a whole bunch of things he shouldn’t be proud about being”), Jones decided to do the interview as his Drowsy Autistic Guy character, which could still use some workshopping, honestly.
It turns out that the real heat came after the segment was officially over. In this incredibly uncomfortable footage (via MMAJunkie), Jones asks Cormier, “Hey pussy, are you still there?”, which leads Cormier to marvel at how fake Jones is, and how he can turn into a completely different person when the cameras are off. Then it gets really good:
Cormier: You are the fucking scum of the earth, you are a terrible human being, but you can sure turn it on, huh?
Jones: Thank you.
Cormier: Gaahh, fuck. I wish they would let me next door so I can spit in your fucking face.
Jones: [long pause] You know I would absolutely kill you if you ever did something like that, right?
Cormier: You could never kill me.
Jones: Oh, I bet you I could.
Cormier: Then you should try, Jon. You really should try, Jon.
Jones: I will literally kill you if you spit in my face.
Cormier: Yeah, let’s try that, Jon.
Jones: Lit-terally kill you.
Cormier: Let’s try that, Jon.
Jones: I’m not saying I would fight you. I said I would kill you if you do some silly shit like that.
Cormier: So Jon, do you think I’m just going to sit there and let you kill me, Jon? I mean really.
At that point, a producer comes by to break up the fun, and the question remains unanswered. Anyway, we’d like to thank Jon and Daniel once again for giving us such a great storyline this week. Also, this screencap:
