Tyson Fury's Father Hits Back At Dana White For Comments About His Son

The UFC president claimed that Tyson would get "smashed" if he was to swap the ring for the Octagon.

White's damning verdict on Tyson intending to pursue an MMA career hasn't gone down well with John whose fired back and called for a fight with the UFC boss.

"How does he know about smashing anybody when Tyson comes from a smashing family, you know what I'm saying?" He told iFLTV.

"When I can probably smash Dana White with one punch, you know what I'm saying? So how can he write my son off like that? You can't write a man off with Tyson's ability or heart or will to win, and he knows that. He's talking stupid.

"Let him talk to me like that. I'll fight him.

"Match me up with him tonight, you know what I'm saying? Because I believe I'm the best 54-year-old man in the world. I'm the fittest, I know that, and I'm the best 54-year-old man on the planet," he added.

"I'm going to prove it anytime, anywhere, for free or for money. So let him take that in your pipe and smoke it. I mean that, mate. Keep my son's name out of your mouth. If it's not good, don't talk about him."

Fury revealed he was in talks with Conor McGregor about making his MMA debut, and a video emerged online of him hitting pads with UFC middleweight Darren Till.

But White believes it wouldn't end well for the lineal heavyweight champion.

"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," he said.

"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, meanwhile, made his competitive WWE debut last month at Crown Jewel and is expected to rematch Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title in February 2020.
