When Verbal Jabs Hit Harder Than a Left Hook: Jones vs. Cormie Comedy Roast

Here is a transcript of what each fighter said.

Jon Jones: Can you hear that, Daniel? Oh, you got your butt kicked today, buddy.

Daniel Cormier: No way, I didn’t even see it.

Jon Jones: Oh, come on, you did. You’re just a little…

Daniel Cormier: Oh my God, I had you on your back. You suck, bro.

Jon Jones: You’re just a little weakling. I’m glad to know that you’re tiny.

Daniel Cormier: Whatever, dude. People say you’re so strong, but you’re just a little…

Jon Jones: I felt so weak. You’re like this dude sometimes. Everybody says you’re so strong.

Daniel Cormier: Okay, you’re a little chubby.

Jon Jones: First off, you hit like a…

Daniel Cormier: If I hit? I hit like a…

Jon Jones: Yeah, but I didn’t feel it. I felt Melky’s punch more than yours, you little punk.

Daniel Cormier: Oh, you’re so mad. I can hear it in your voice.

Jon Jones: Alright, Daniel, I can’t wait to beat the [bleep] out of you. Just like today, you were on your butt.

Daniel Cormier: If you think today was a real fight, you’re an idiot. Junior college dropout.

Jon Jones: Oh, Junior College Dropout. That’s why I have [bleep] million in the bank.

Daniel Cormier: You’re still an idiot. I’m a junior college…

Jon Jones: You’re still an idiot. I’m a junior college…

Daniel Cormier: You’re still an idiot. I’m a junior…

Jon Jones: You’re still an idiot. I’m a junior…

Daniel Cormier: I don’t care how much money you got. You’re still an idiot.

Jon Jones: Sitting on [bleep] million, baby. What are you sitting on?

Daniel Cormier: Shut up, you’re an idiot.

Jon Jones: No, you didn’t. That just shows your level of education. You count that as a fight.

Daniel Cormier: I’m glad you won this one, because you’re not winning the next time I get my hands on you.

Jon Jones: I whooped your [bleep] now. Alright, whooped. Little boy, you’re on your butt.

Daniel Cormier: Little boy, you’re on your butt. Little boy, you’re a punk. Junior College Dropout.

Jon Jones: Whatever, man. Got more money than you and your whole family.

Daniel Cormier: Doesn’t matter. That’s what you are. It doesn’t change the fact that, when this is all said and done, you’ll go back to being broke and a loser.

Jon Jones: Yeah, sure. That’s in your nature. That’s who you are.

Daniel Cormier: Sure, that’s what you’re gonna do. Trust me.

Jon Jones: If you need help paying for college bills, let me know.

Daniel Cormier: I don’t need help. I’m smart. The money I get, I saved. Yours will all get used up because you’re an idiot.

Jon Jones: I saved. My house is paid off.

Daniel Cormier: Yeah, sure. You’re an idiot, Jon.

Jon Jones: You’re an idiot, John. I don’t need to commentate on my part-time. I’m doing good.

Daniel Cormier: Hey, I commentate because I like to and I want a future. What are you gonna do, Jon Jones, after you’re done fighting? I’m stacked up so good, I can retire right now.

Jon Jones: Yeah, sure, John. Whatever. Right, you could.

Daniel Cormier: Well, I’m glad you got it now because I’m taking everything on September 4th.

Jon Jones: Shut up. I’m taking everything on September 4th.

Daniel Cormier: Oh my goodness. Are you still there?

Jon Jones: I’m here. You’re just the fakest person. I actually admire that you can be this fake when the TV comes on, like you’re a chameleon.

Daniel Cormier: It’s awesome. It hasn’t changed. It’s unbelievable how fake you can be. You’re just amazing.

Jon Jones: It is amazing. But, you know what? Hats off to you. You got a great PR person because they do a great job with training you.

Daniel Cormier: You’re the worst, dude. You’re the worst.

Jon Jones: Thank you. God, you suck.

Daniel Cormier: I wish they would let me next door so I can spit in your face.

Jon Jones: I would absolutely kill you if you ever did something like that.

Daniel Cormier: You could never. You could never kill me.

Jon Jones: Oh, I bet you I could.

Daniel Cormier: Then you should try, Jon.

Jon Jones: You really should try, Jon.

Daniel Cormier: I would literally kill you if you’re scared of my face.

Jon Jones: Let’s try that, Jon.

Daniel Cormier: Literally kill you. Let’s try that, Jon.

Jon Jones: I’m not saying I will fight you. I would kill you.

Daniel Cormier: So, Jon, do you think I’m just gonna sit there and let you kill me, Jon?

Jon Jones: I mean, really?

Daniel Cormier: Coming from a guy who’s 5’10”. Oh, it doesn’t matter how tall I am. It does not matter how tall I am.

Jon Jones: But you’re such… How much do you weigh right now?

Daniel Cormier: Enough. How about you?

Jon Jones: About [bleep] good. Really strong, man.

Daniel Cormier: You, Jon, you’re the weakest today.

Jon Jones: Okay, Daniel. I swear to God, like I tried, Daniel. I swear to God. I don’t want to insult you. I don’t want to fight and be petty. But, Daniel, if you really are basing anything off of what happened today on that floor, you are an idiot.

Daniel Cormier: Yeah, well, how come you ended up being on your… on the floor and on your bed?

Jon Jones: Because they had all the security guards grabbing me.

Daniel Cormier: You’re the worst, dude. Seriously, you’re the worst. But hey, Jon, watch. Jon, I’ll be a chameleon just like you. I’ll do exactly like you did on this last interview. I won’t give them anything. I’ll do exactly like you did because I mean, remember, I have Olympic-level media training. So watch. I’ll show you. I’ll tell them. I’ll call them back.
