UFC boss Dana White has challenged boxing star Tyson Fury to fight Jon Jones inside the octagon.
Ever since UFC commentator Joe Rogan said Jones would win in a fight between the two, Fury has said that ‘no man born from a mother’ could beat him.
Jones then responded by telling the Brit boxer to contact White to set up a blockbuster bout.
Now, White has had his say on the potential fight.
He said: “There’s this debate going on about who is the baddest man on the planet. Jon Jones is the baddest man on the planet, there’s no doubt about it. So when we talk about baddest man on the planet, if two guys fought in a fight, who would win? If you want to discuss another baddest man on the planet, it would be Tyson Fury in a boxing arena, and we all know if Jon Jones boxed Tyson Fury, Fury wins.
“The offer is out there if you want to do it in the UFC. I know he was messing around a little with MMA for a little while there, let’s do it. Let’s answer the question. If you want the fight, if you want the title of baddest man on the planet, let’s do it. I’m in. We could all talk about this forever, but there’s only one way to find out. I’m willing to do it. Tyson can call me himself. He has my number, we have a good relationship, or Tyson’s people can call me and we’ll get it done.”

“I’m telling Tyson Fury, who I respect very much, if you really want to find out who the baddest man on the planet is, I will make that fight. I will make Jon Jones vs. Tyson Fury in the octagon, and we’ll figure out [payment]. We figured out how to pay, we’ll figure out how to pay you too Tyson.”
