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.

Because you want to see it first!
