Default Dana White issues challenge to boxer Tyson Fury: 'You will get smashed'

NEW YORK CITY Heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury has an open invitation to step in the octagon and fight MMA.

"Come on over," UFC President Dana White said today. "We'll make a deal."

Prior to his 21st pro win this past Saturday, the undefeated boxer called MMA "rubbish" and told ESPN he had [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] three times to no avail.

White is willing to accept the challenge on his fighter's behalf.

"You want to fight Cain? Come on over here," White said today during a fan Q&A. "You will get smashed."

Fury is the latest pugilist to take aim at mixed martial arts, though certainly not the first. Champ Floyd Mayweather is among the most famous detractors, though other stars have given the sport its due.

A confident and brash self-promoter, Fury has made headlines calling out Velasquez, whom he called a "midget" after the UFC champ's dominant win over [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] at UFC 155.

Velasquez, who first won the title by beating [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] at UFC 121 and then retook it by avenging a loss to Dos Santos at UFC on FOX, deflected Fury's initial barbs by saying the boxer should work his way up the MMA ladder like everyone else.

"Nothing is given to you in this world," [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. "To me, it's like don't talk about it, go ahead and do it. That's all I have to say about that."

Fury is an idiot.

MMA is garbage, and I don't think much of their fighters either, but fact is they all train for that wrestling ****, and the fact is a stand up fighter can't do much against that.

If it was stand up, even if the dude can kick too, Fury would beat him imo, any decent boxer would, but that wrestling tips the balance.

Fury gets smashed in the octogon, Velasquez gets ko'd in the ring, let's call it a draw.

Of course he will get smashed in an MMA fight Dana even Fury is not that stupid to accept such an offer.

There's probably a lot of guys at MW & LHW who would beat Fury also seeing how he struggles with smaller men. In the ring It should be a different story but against good HW strikers like Hunt, Overeem or JDS I'm not 100% convinced he would beat someone like that the bloke is so damn vulnerable and has no defense.

Fury was the one spouting off saying he could beat anyone in the octagon. We all know its 2 different sports. Whites give him his invitation he's not stupid. Tyson does a lot of talking for publicity but needs to keep his gob shut aomwtimes

So Fury makes some dumb comments about mma and White responds with equal stupidity. The cycle continues.

cos he knows they are glass jawed with no skills and would get smashed to bits by journeymen.

But he doesn't claim they would be anything special

Seriously low IQ's. Boxing is fist fighting, MMA is complete fighting, big difference. MMA without grappling is called K1, no boxer would stand the slightest chance in K1, two fists vs an 8 pointed attack, you do the math.
