Dana White revealed that he spoke with current full-boxing champion Tyson Fury about migrating to the MMA.
Fury said in an interview that he wants to fight in the UFC when his boxing career ends, but White has doubts about that. In an interview, with 106.7 FM, the UFC president revealed that he is very interested in competing in MMA.
“He is interested, “White said. “He and I talked the other day. So I respect that and we’ll see what happens.”
Before Fury and White start working, the Englishman has to finish his boxing contract. Where, he will face Deontay Wilder in February, and after that, sit down and negotiate with White.
“We are going to see what happens with his boxing career,” White said. “He has to finish his fight with Wilder, which will be a great and fun fight for the full weight division.” So we’ll see how that goes and see what happens.”
