Tyson Fury Fires Back At Dana White After UFC Boss Says He'd Get Smashed In MMA
Tyson Fury has responded to Dana White's claim by saying he'd "smash" the UFC president for free.
Fury has been flirting with the idea of moving over to MMA after holding talks with Conor McGregor and training with UFC middleweight Darren Till.
But White has questioned Fury's MMA intentions by claiming he'd get smashed in the Octagon.

Needless to say, the lineal heavyweight champion pulled no punches when addressing his harsh comments.
"I'd smash him for free, so I'm not bothered. Everyone's got their opinions. I have no interest really. I don't care," he said in response to White.
Tyson's father John Fury also hit back at White's claim. The 55-year-old slammed the UFC boss for his comments and challenged him to a fight.
"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's most recent bout was against Braun Strowman at WWE Crown Jewel. He's expected to rematch Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title in 2020.
Will he make his MMA debut next year? Watch this space.
