UFC President Dana White believes heavyweight contender Tyson Fury would get seriously hurt if he attempted to make a run in Mixed Martial Arts - especially in the UFC.

Last month, Fury made his debut in pro wrestling - when he entered the ring in Saudi Arabia to win a match against WWE superstar Braun Strowman by knockout.

After reaching his dream of taking part in a WWE match, Fury has now expressed his desire to enter the world of the UFC.

And Fury, who says Conor McGregor will help him prepare, wants to fight the very best that the UFC has to offer - like UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.

“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," Fury told IFL TV.

“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 believes Fury would be crazy to even attempt a run in the UFC - because it won't turn out well.

“Fury’s worked hard his whole life to become one of the top four [heavyweights] in the world in boxing. 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," White said.

Fury is slated to take part in a rematch with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder in February - provided Wilder defeats Luis Ortiz later this month.
