Following Tyson Fury’s successful WWE debut, footage came out of the former unified world heavyweight champion training with UFC middleweight Darren Till.
Fury also made it clear that he’s gunning for current UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, who may be down for it.
“Tyson Fury is coming in the mix now, I hear,” Stipe Miocic said on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show. “I like a new challenge.”
“I’d love to box him. He’s a great fighter. He’s a good dude, and I think we’d put on a good show.”
One person Miocic isn’t interested in fighting is former UFC heavyweight champion, Daniel Cormier, who Miocic beat by TKO earlier this summer.
“With DC, I didn’t fluke knock him out, I beat him. I decisively beat him,” Miocic said of the UFC 241 fight that saw Cormier leading the scorecards before a body shot sent him to the canvas.
“The first fight DC caught me with a punch in the first round. But [the] second fight I won. I didn’t get lucky. Right now, [a Cormier fight] doesn’t really intrigue me. More with the Tyson Fury, I like that.”
