Heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury may have finally picked the MMA fight he was looking for with Cain Velasquez. Fury has made it known to anyone who will listen that he thinks MMA sucks and he could beat the UFC Heavyweight Champion. Velasquez has said all he has to do is fight his way up the ladder like everyone else for a shot at his crown, but according to UFC President Dana White he might get fast tracked because of his boxing pedigree.
At a question and answer session with fans, White was told what Fury had said and that he still wanted the fight with Velasquez. White declared “Come on over. We’ll make a deal. You want to fight Cain? Come on over here. You will get smashed.”
Velasquez is scheduled to fight at UFC 160: Velasquez Vs Silva II against Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 25.
