Just when you thought the rivalry between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier couldn’t get any more intense, following their pre-fight brawl earlier this week, a new video has surfaced that is sure to raise eyebrows.

Jones and Cormier appeared on ESPN’s “Sportscenter” recently and apologized for their actions, but new, off air footage shows the two having another heated exchange.

During the back-and-forth, Cormier expressed his desire to spit in Jones’ face, and the light-heavyweight champ threatened to “literally kill” the challenger if he did. Cormier then countered by telling Jones to “try”.

The two are set to fight on September 27th at UFC 178 in Las Vegas.
