If Tyson Fury stepped inside the Octagon, UFC President Dana White feels it won’t end well for the undefeated former world heavyweight champion.
“Fury’s worked hard his whole life to become one of the top four [heavyweights] in the world in boxing. Why would you wanna even come over and attempt this? I don’t think it ends well for him. It doesn’t make sense for his career,” White said in reaction to an interview Fury had with IFL TV.
“I spoke to Conor and we’re ready to rock and roll. McGregor is making his comeback. I’m looking at stepping into the MMA world. It’s a talking process at the minute. I’m dipping my toes in all waters right now, like WWE,” Fury told IFL TV.
“I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I’ve got WWE now, my book, autobiography, ITV documentary, song with Robbie Williams, big Deontay Wilder rematch and then you know… fingers in all pies. I’m trying to get that big fight going on with whoever. Listen, I’m not afraid of any of them. Who’s the heavyweight champion of the world in UFC? Stipe Miocic is it?
“He just beat Daniel Cormier in the rematch, good body shots, bam, bam, got him out of there. I’d fight him in a heartbeat, no problem,” Fury said of the current UFC heavyweight champion. “Or Francis Ngannou. Any of the heavyweight champions they’ve got. I ain’t afraid of any of them. I’m the Gypsy King. Listen, I’m a boxer, but I am one badass mofo.”
