Tyson Fury is clearly not very fond of Joe Rogan picking Jon Jones over him in a fantasy Fury vs Jones fight, and the WBC heavyweight champ has dropped some choicest words on the UFC color commentator.
Not a man born from a mother could f—k me up: Tyson Fury
Fury and Jones- two of the greatest heavyweight fighters of all time. The former rules the boxing ring as the undefeated WBC titlist, while the latter – a former UFC light heavyweight champ, has the current heavyweight gold, and is considered by many to be the G.O.A.T of MMA.
While boxing fans would side with Fury in a theoretical fantasy fight between the two, MMA fans would do vice versa, and Joe Rogan is also on the latter side as in a recent episode on his podcast, picked “Bones” over “The Gypsy King”.
“There’s no one who thinks Tyson Fury could beat Jon Jones,” said Rogan. “No one thinks that. Tyson doesn’t think that. You want to talk about who’s the baddest man on the planet? If Jon Jones and Tyson Fury were locked into a room, I’m pushing all my chips on black. Fury is an amazing boxer, but he has no f—king chance in hell of making it out of the room. Zero chance. [Fury] would have to catch Jon immediately with one punch, and I just don’t see that happening, man. The threat of the takedown looms so large. That shot will come so unexpectedly. When he gets his hands around you, you’ll be so stunned.”
The comments were expected to not sit well with Fury, who took to his social media to issue a fiery statement on Rogan.
“I’m the baddest man on the planet! I heard Joe Rogan say something about me, and I’ve been off all the social medias and didn’t reply to that little pu—y, little f—king midget, bald-headed midget,” Fury stated in a video shared on his social media. “I heard him say that Jon Jones could f—k me up if we were in the room together. I don’t think so. Not a man born from a mother could f—k me up, in a room, on our own. Whatever happens in that room, I’d be walking out. Not a f—king problem.” [H/T MMA Mania]
