Tyson Fury continues to call out the sport of MMA and UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez, and as a result, Dana White has invited the undefeated boxer to back up his trash talk.
Fury, who knocked out Steve Cunningham this past weekend to extend his record to 21-0, recently told ESPN that MMA is â€śrubbish.â€ť He also reportedly said that heâ€™s called Velasquez out three times.
After all, it wasnâ€™t long ago that Fury relayed via Twitter that heâ€™s willing to fight Velasquez in a â€ścage or ringâ€ť, before calling the UFC champ a â€śsmall stiff idiot.â€ť Â Either Fury is one of the most confident boxers to ever walk the face of the earth, or extremely uninformed about what MMA actually entails. Of course, it could be a bit of both (see James Toney vs. Randy Couture).
According to a story by MMA Junkie.com, White responded to Furyâ€™s callout at a Q&A session this week by telling the British fighter they can â€śmake a dealâ€ť and that further:
â€śYou want to fight Cain? Come on over here. You will get smashed.â€ť
Unless Fury plans to fight Velasquez a few years from now and dedicates his life to wrestling, clinch work and jiu-jitsu, itâ€™s hard to disagree with Whiteâ€™s prediction.
Velasquez, meanwhile, is preparing for a May 25th bout with Antonio Silva, who is someone who can fight on the ground as well as his feet.
