Jones threatened to "literally kill" Cormier...
As Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier appeared in an interview on ESPN responding to their brawl earlier in the week and during the interview, Cormier referred to Jones as "fake." Jones has addressed those claims in a recent interview of course. Now, video footage released from after the interview while the two fighters microphones were still on in which Cormier and Jones exchanged some very pointed and vicious barbs.
In the footage, Jones starts off by calling Cormier a "p**sy" and Cormier continues to go off on calling Jones fake. Cormier accuses Jones of being "terrible...you are the f**king scum of the earth." Jones doesn't seem riled until the following exchange (courtesy of MMAjunkie):
Cormier: "I wish they would let me next door so I can spit in your f–king face." Jones: [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. 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."
