Immediately after Tyson Fury’s spectacular win over Deontay Wilder, UFC heavyweights are issuing challenges.
Current UFC heavyweight Stipe Miocic made his opus towards the new WBC and lineal champion on social media.
Then feared heavyweight Francis Ngannou let it be known that he wants a piece of “The Gypsy King” action.
Fury has stated before that he is interested in fighting mixed martial arts. There is an offer for training by none other than “The Notorious” Conor McGregor still standing as well.
McGregor sent Fury a bottle of his Proper 12 whiskey on weigh-in day to show his love for the newly crowned champion.
UFC President Dana White has said that he would consider allowing his fighters to box in the future. His partnership with McGregor Sports & Entertainment made way for “The Money Fight” between McGregor and Floyd Mayweather in 2017.
It is now the second-highest-grossing boxing pay-per-view event of all time behind Mayweather vs. Pacquiao.
Since then, many MMA fighters and a handful of boxers had discussed seriously making the switch.
