UFC president Dana White reacts to Tyson Fury’s wishes to move into MMA: ‘I don’t think it ends well for him’

Dana White believes Tyson Fury’s wishes to attempt a career in MMA wouldn’t end well for the boxer.

The former heavyweight champion, who recently competed at the WWE Crown Jewel, claimed he’s making a move to MMA after holding talks with Conor McGregor.

Fury confirmed he has spoken to Irishman McGregor about joining the sport.

He told iFLTV: “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.


“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. 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 bad ass mofo.”

However, White said he doesn’t believe the ‘Gypsy King’ is cut out for the UFC in a damning response.

“Fury’s worked hard his whole life to become one of the top four [heavyweights] in the world in boxing,” he told the media in New York.

“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.”

After his WWE debut, Fury confirmed that his long-awaited re-match with WBC champion Deontay Wilder should happen in February 2020.
