Tyson Fury tears into 'bald midget' Joe Rogan after Jon Jones comments, he's fuming
| Last updated
Tyson Fury has called Joe Rogan a "bald-headed midget" after the podcast host suggested he "doesn’t have a f***ing chance in hell" if he came up against UFC legend Jon Jones in a fight.
Last month, while speaking to comedian Andrew Schulz on the JRE podcast episode, Rogan was discussing how a fight between the best heavyweights in boxing and MMA would play out.
Unsurprisingly, the UFC commentator believes there would only be one winner – the person who knows how to wrestle; even if he was coming up against WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
“No one thinks that Tyson Fury can beat Jon Jones in a fight,” he said. "No one thinks that. Tyson doesn’t think that."
Rogan added: "You want to talk about who’s the baddest man on the planet? If Jon Jones and Tyson Fury are locked into a room, I’m pushing all of my chips on black.
“Tyson Fury is an amazing boxer [but] he doesn’t have a f***ing chance in hell of making it out of that room. Zero chance, he 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 would come so unexpectedly and when he gets his hands around you, you’d be stunned.”
The podcaster did admit that a haymaker from Fury could make things interesting but he believes 'The Gypsy King' would struggle to deal with Jones' takedown ability.

Weeks later and Fury has now responded to Rogan with a prediction of his own.
"I'm the baddest man on the planet," Fury said on his Instagram story. "I heard Joe Rogan say something about me the other day, and I've been off all the social media so I didn't reply to the little p*ssy. The little f***ing bald-headed midget.
"I heard him say that Jon Jones could f*ck me up if we were in a room together. I don't think so. Not a man born from a mother can f*ck me up in a room on our own.
"Whatever happens in that room, I'd be walking out. Not a f***ing problem."
Here is that call-out:
Here's how social media reacted to the debate.
One said: "In a ring, Tyson wins. In a cage, Jones ends it in 2 minutes max. Locked in a room, Jon Jones takes his soul," while another commented: "Tyson would be on the ground in 9 seconds. No chance he walks out of any room with Jones."
A third wrote: "No doubt in my mind Jones hits him inside leg kick immediately takes him down and submits him unconscious- Did I miss anything? I’m a Fury fan for sure - but let be real."
A fourth added: "In a boxing ring yes. Outside of that in a real fight Jones would hand this man a beating like he hasn’t seen before. And I’m not a Jones fan. But respect where respect is due."
