Tyson Fury reveals plans for MMA career with Conor McGregor offering to coach him as Gypsy King prepares for WWE Crown Jewel event vs Braun Strowman

Tyson Fury says he is considering a move into mixed martial arts and has even had an offer to train with Conor McGregor.

The former heavyweight boxing world champion is due for a rematch with Deontay Wilder next year but will first appear in the WWE.

The Gypsy King is gearing up to take on Braun Strowman at WWE’s Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia on Thursday.

Fury was at Sunday’s NFL match between the LA Rams and Cincinnati Bengals at Wembley and revealed his plans.

“I’ve got something big coming up after this. Even more bigger than this,” he told Sky Sports.

“We might see Tyson Fury make his MMA debut this year too. It’s different but like I say Tyson Fury is taking over.

“Yeah I’ve been speaking to Conor (McGregor) about it and he’s willing to train me and it’s going to be good.

“I come from a long line of bare knuckle boxing champions. Getting hurt, you saw my last fight with blood everywhere, it’s nothing new to me and all part of my heritage and upbringing so I’d love to get in there and smash someone up.

“He (McGregor) said any time you are ready, when you’ve got the time, let’s go to Dublin and start training. So I can’t wait to take him up on the offer.

“Who knows we might be on a double header, the Gypsy King and Conor McGregor.”

Fury, 31, has a boxing record of 29-0-1 but has previously said he may retire after just three more fights.

He told talkSPORT that the only thing that could threaten his rematch with Deontay Wilder would be the result of his fight with Luis Ortiz.

“My injury is fine but if it doesn’t happen it’s because Deontay Wilder gets beat by Luis Ortiz at the end of November.

“There’s no fight between me and Wilder if he loses and I won’t be able to fight Luis Ortiz either because they’ll have a rematch clause so I will have to find a new opponent who might be the winner of Joshua vs Ruiz.


Fury also thinks he is being underestimated for his skills in the WWE ring ahead of his clash with Braun Strowman.

He added: “Everyone is going to be quietly surprised when they see me on Thursday night over in Saudi Arabia performing on the world’s biggest stage.

“It depends on what I want to do with it. Let’s get this fight out the way first and we will see where we go from there.”
