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?
