Hot Mic Catches Jon Jones Making a Death Threat to Daniel Cormier

Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier brawled during a promotional appearance last week. After going on ESPN to make amends, they were caught on a hot mic swearing at each other, which escalated from there. Our friends at MMA Junkie have the transcription (and provides the video above):

Cormier: I wish they would let me next door so I can spit in your f–king face.

Jones: 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. Literally 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 sh-t like that.

It’s not 100% clear whether all of this stuff is, to borrow a term from pro wrestling, a “work” designed to gin up interest in buying the fight (or if it’s partly real and partially exaggerated). The match is scheduled for September 27th.
