White issues challenge to boxer Fury


Undefeated heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury has had a lot to say about MMA and it's fighters, and it hasn't been cordial. Fury has challenged UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez to a fight and call the sport of MMA rubbish. Today UFC President Dana White responded:

"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 called out UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez 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."

Yes....because fighting pro football players w/ zero combat experience or striking is the same as fighting Fury...EXACTLY !!!

Leben would met the exact same fate as Tim Sylvia (another plodding mummy striker who RULED the HW division for a time....w/ Z level boxing and a good base) did against Ray Mercer.Leben would try to throw hands and realize he lacks the speed, power, coordination, skill, talent, and defense to trade w/ world class boxers. He would try beat them at their own game...and LOLz would be had.

Low levl or mid to top tier ?Anything mid to top tier Leben goes in there to prove he's the man withy his fists who can stand up to high level pros...He keeps the fight on the feet out of ego...and goes 0-5...LOL @ thinking Anderson Silva is the only striker in the world that could clown Leben like that on the feet.

This.As much as Dana is a hot head and says some pretty inflammatory stuff he has always been respectful about the sport of boxing (not the promoters etc).He only invites the guys who have something to say about MMA. He could be way more over the top and call out every top 5 boxer in interviews, knowing there is a better than average chance they would get owned by a top MMA fighter.If anything he actually shows a lot of restraint.

How is boxing "our boy"? He was a fucking 5'9 counter punching middleweight from the 90's. Randy was older but only by 5 years.
