Tyson Fury has no intention of fighting in the UFC in the future. Although there were rumors that the "Gipsy king" could arrange a match with one of the UFC stars, Fury still emphasized that boxing is what he loves, and what he is best at.
At the moment, he sees no reason to be in the Octagon with anyone. Israel Adesanya challenged him to a fight lately, but Fury now denied that it would come to that. "I ain't getting in no cage," -Tyson Fury said talking with British media.
"Not to scrap with you - I'm a straight up boxer, Queensbury rules brother." Fury has been on the boxing scene for many years. That is the area in which he is the best. Precisely because of this, he sees no reason why he would fight in the Octagon or any other martial sport.
"If you guys want to fight me it’s got to be under boxing rules. I don’t roll round the floor, I stand up and punch”. - he said.
Dana White on arranging a fight
UFC President Dana White would like to arrange a match between Fury and a UFC fighter.
That would really be something that both boxing and UFC fans would love. However, Fury has no experience in the UFC and indeed many believe that he would have no chance. If he changes his mind, White is ready to allow the fight for him.
“Jon Jones is the baddest dude on the planet. There's no debate, there's no denying it. I don't care what anybody says, they can try to spin it, a lot of this stuff is clickbait and you know how I am. If Tyson Fury really wants to fight Jon Jones in the UFC I will make it happen, here's my thing, right now; 'Tyson if you’re serious let me know', Tyson and I have a good relationship.
I like Tyson Fury and if he's serious let's find out. Listen, we can talk all we want, Tyson can talk, Jon can talk, I can talk, we can all talk let’s do it."- Dana White said.
