Conor McGregor Hilariously Reacts To Tyson Fury's MMA Training Claim

Conor McGregor Hilariously Reacts To Tyson Fury's MMA Training Claim

Conor McGregor claims he's never met or agreed to train Tyson Fury about a potential stunning move to MMA.

Fury, the lineal heavyweight champion, has talked up a potential crossover to MMA. He hit mitts with UFC star Darren Till as he stoked speculation about a move to the Octagon.

The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' then continued to hype up a transition to MMA by claiming he'd spoken with McGregor.

But the former UFC double champion has denied Fury's claim by saying he's "never spoke" to him in his life but would be open to offering his services.

"I know Tyson (Fury) has been talking about it a lot. Tyson keeps saying me and him spoke and I said I'd train him. I've never spoken to Tyson in my life, so I don't know why he's saying that," he told BT Sport via LowKickMMA.

"It's not a bad story so I let it roll... Tyson is a good man, a great boxer a phenomenal boxer. Probably the best natural boxer in the heavyweight division at this time. So, you know, who knows? I wouldn't say he is just saying he'd do it and not do it, like a lot of them do. I say Tyson probably would do it in time, so you never know.

"Maybe we could set something up. I wouldn't be holding mitts for him or anything. But if he wanted to be trained by me or educated by me, I'd have to see him in certain positions and situations," he added.

"I'd need him to spar a heavyweight. I'd need to see him deal with the leg kicks. I'd need to see him in the bottom position. And then I'd assess that and send him off. Tell him what work he needs to do and then off he goes.

"That could probably be something I could do for Tyson. I found it funny that he was saying we talked. He's a mad man Tyson. I've never spoke to the man in my life."
