WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury isn’t very happy after hearing that UFC commentator and podcaster, Joe Rogan would “[push] all of my chips” in on current UFC Heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones in a hypothetical matchup between the two.
Rogan’s comments made their way to Fury, who soon went on a Fury-ous tirade against podcast heavyweight Rogan.
A man who isn’t afraid of much, Fury tagged Rogan just to ensure he couldn’t miss his message:
“I heard Joe Rogan say something about me, and I’ve been off all social medias and didn’t reply to that little p****, little f***ing midget, bald-headed midget,” Fury scolded. “I heard him say that Jon Jones could f*** me up if we were in the room together. I don’t think so. Not a man born from a mother could f*** me up, in a room, on our own. Whatever happens in that room, I’d be walking out. Not a f***ing problem.”

The original remarks that set off Tyson’s fury were made by Rogan in a recent podcast interview with Andrew Schultz. Of the hypothetical matchup, Rogan sounded confident.
“You want to talk about who’s the baddest man on the planet? If Jon Jones and Tyson Fury are locked into a room, I’m pushing all of my chips on black,” said Rogan. “Tyson Fury is an amazing boxer — he doesn’t have a f***ing chance in hell of making it out of that room. He has no chance of making it out of that room. Zero chance. [Fury] would have to catch Jon immediately with on punch, and I just don’t see that happening, man.”
Fury’s boxing record currently stands at 33-0-1, and his most recent match against Derek Chisora saw Fury victorious once again and able to keep hold of his WBC heavyweight title.
Over in the UFC, Jones defended his Light Heavyweight Championship title eleven times before becoming the Heavyweight Champion, and has lost just once, in 2009.
While the odds of the MMA legend and boxing champion actually getting into an official match together, nonetheless a street fight where they’re locked in a room and only one of them could walk out mostly unscathed, are slim to none, though there is precedent. As of now, Jones hasn’t said anything publicly about Rogan’s comments, since he’s been too busy calling out former rival Francis Ngannou for signing with the PFL.
