Dana White Wants Tyson Fury To Switch To UFC Soon

By Mike Parrott

UFC President Dana White wants Tyson Fury to make the switch to the UFC in the next few years. This comes after White had mocked Fury's chances initially.

Dana White wants more crossovers between Boxing and UFC.

After the sheer amount of money his company made from the Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor fight, many Boxers and UFC Fighters alike have spoke about crossover fights.

Current Lineal Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury, is one of those Boxers who wants to fight in the UFC one day.

A clip of him sparring with UFC fighter, Darren Till went viral within a day and showed that Fury might have what it takes in the Octagon.

However, UFC President Dana White now wants Fury in the Octagon after initially saying he wouldn't make it in the UFC.

"Right now I see him as the best in the world or one of the best in the world," White said.

"He'll play out the fights with all the other guys right now... I'd love to have him over here to fight...I'll see how it all plays out. But I do like him."

This comes after White said previously that Fury would get 'smashed' in the UFC:

"Why come over and get smashed when you could stay there?"

Fury is set to fight Deontay Wilder on February 22, 2020 in their highly-anticipated rematch from their previous emphatic draw back in 2018.
