It’s no surprise that Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier absolutely despise each other and every meeting between the two UFC fighters has been explosive but during a recent interview on ESPN Sportscenter things got a lot more intense with Jon Jones delivering a death threat to Daniel Cormier. Here’s what you didn’t see.
Moments before their Sportscenter interview, Jon Jones calls out Daniel Cormier referring to him as female genitalia. “Hey p*ssy, yo still there?” Jones asks. “I’m here,” Cormier answers, “I actually admire that you can actually be this fake and like when the TV comes on how you could just change, your like a chameleon.” The two go back and forth with Cormier giving credit to Jon Jones’ PR Team who he says is great at hiding who Jones really is. Cormier then says he wishes they (staff) would let him in next door so that he could spit on Jones’ face. Not liking what he just heard, Jon Jones threatens Daniel Cormier’s life saying: “You know I would absolutely kill you if you ever did something like that right?”
There are mixed responses about the Jones Cormier feud with some saying their actions are unprofessional and others saying they actually enjoy they intense rivalry which is a product of fighters just trying to get in each other’s heads. If anything is certain, it is that the media circus is sure to bring in big numbers for the title fight in September.
