Fury: I've Spoken Plenty With Dana White, But I Don't Need To Fight UFC Guys

WBC heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury admits that he's had several conversations with UFC President Dana White - but at the moment Fury is not looking to enter the world of mixed martial arts.

Last year, Fury crossed over to professional wrestling when he made his debut for the WWE, when he traveled to Saudi Arabia in October and defeated company superstar Braun Strowman by countout.

Fury made several other appearances for WWE and intends to compete for their organization in the future.

Fury has done some MMA training UFC middleweight contender Darren Till, but certainly not enough to get him ready for a run in the cage.

While Fury has spoken with White, he believes there are far too many opportunities left in boxing to even consider the idea of doing a crossover fight in the UFC.

“I’ve had plenty of conversations with Dana White about potentially having a fight with one of the guys,” Fury said to IFL TV. “But, at the minute, I don’t need to fight UFC guys. I need to clear up some of my own stuff [in boxing]. There’s a few guys that need to be fought in this era. I need to fight Wilder again. I’ve got to fight Joshua. I need to fight Dillian Whyte.

“I’ll fight anyone, and there’s a lot coming up too like Joe Joyce, Daniel Dubois and Tony Yoka. A lot of fresh meat to beat on. There’s even fights like Luis Ortiz, whoever. There’s so many heavyweights today. Efa Ajagba, the Nigerian. He looks pretty good, big tall kid. Filip Hrgovi?, he looks amazing, too. Oleksandr Usyk. Dereck Chisora, he’s in the mix. There’s so many good heavyweights out there to be fought and fights to give the fans.

“Until then, I don’t need a fight with Francis Ngannou. I don’t need Stipe Miocic, Brock Lesnar, whoever. I don’t need these guys to fight in a crossover match right now. When I’m finished what I’m doing in my own career, we can look at something like that.”
