Miocic is widely regarded as the one of the greatest heavyweights in MMA history.
He won his second UFC Heavyweight title back in August when he defeated Daniel Cormier at UFC 241 in California.
UFC President Dana White also seemed to be impressed with 'The Gypsy King' and his technique, as he also shared the clip on his own social media.
But White seemed to quash rumours of Fury ever coming to the UFC during a press conference before UFC 244 earlier this month.
"Fury's worked hard his whole life to become one of the top four (heavyweights) in the world in boxing," White told the assembled media at Madison Square Garden per The Express.
Why would you wanna even come over and attempt this? I don't think it ends well for him. It doesn't make sense for his career."
White did clarify his comments a few days later, saying per TMZ Sports:
"Listen, anything's possible. If Tyson Fury wants to fight in MMA, I've got a ton of guys that would love to fight him. I just don't know why.
"Promoted the right way, (Fury) could be a part of 3 or 4 of the biggest fights in heavyweight [boxing] history. Why come over and get smashed when you could stay there?"
Fury himself has recently competed in his first WWE match.
He defeated Braun Strowman at the Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.
He also appeared on WWE Smackdown in Manchester, England and discussed his rematch with Deontay Wilder which is set for February 22.
The former lineal heavyweight champion said:
"February 22nd, I go back to America to fight Deontay Wilder and I'm going to finish what I started, because I don't like unfinished business."
Fury fighting in the UFC is something that we'd all be up for watching, but perhaps facing the heavyweight champion is a step too far right now.
