WARNING: Explicit Language
UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and his UFC 178 challenger, Daniel Cormier, irked many onlookers and excited others when a press stop in Las Vegas on Monday erupted in an all-out brawl between the two, even knocking a UFC press official off the stage.
While both have publicly apologized for their actions, and tried to put some spin on it, an off-air, but on-camera moment before the two went on ESPN’s SportsCenter on Monday doesn’t put their feud in any sort of positive light at all.
Seemingly unaware that the cameras were rolling, Jones and Cormier exchanged explicit comments and threats that are going to be extremely difficult for either to explain away once people see the exchange.
