Tyson Fury “Definitely” training with Conor McGregor ahead of MMA debut
World heavyweight boxing champ Tyson Fury is ready for MMA – And he plans on training with some of the best in the business: Conor McGregor.
It’s been apparent that while Tyson Fury is one of the best and biggest boxers in the world, he’s not content with stopping there. He’s showed interest in MMA on multiple occasions and is regularly brought up by prominent MMA fighters. Recently he was shown to be training MMA with none other than former UFC title challenger Darren Till.
While training with Till, someone who got close to UFC gold, is certainly a strong start, he plans on continuing his work with one who has held a UFC title.
“I’m looking forward to coming to train with Conor [McGregor]. We’re going to get it all planned in and I should be over in Dublin quite soon,” Fury told RTÉ Radio 1.

“I think Conor is an absolutely fantastic fighting man. He has offered to train me if I ever want to go into MMA. What better trainer could I have than the Notorious Conor McGregor? I’m looking forward to coming to train with Conor. We’re going to get it all planned in and I should be over in Dublin quite soon.
“I’ll definitely be coming over for a training session, that is for sure. I have been MMA training in the last week with Darren Till in Liverpool, I really enjoy the new challenge. I don’t know where or when [I’ll move into MMA] because after I finish my boxing career I fancy my hand at MMA as well.”
Fury is expected to rematch Deontay Wilder in February 2020, as their first bout ended in a controversial draw. Then it seems that Fury doesn’t plan on continuing boxing too much longer. It seems we may see Fury in the cage sooner rather than later.
