Tyson Fury wants fight with Brock Lesnar: “I could flatten him”
Tyson Fury has his sights set on MMA, and there is no bigger opponent than Brock Lesnar – Literally, and figuratively.
In the sport of boxing, Tyson Fury is without a doubt one of the biggest stars in the sport. Endeared to fans and pundits alike, he remains undefeated, and is beginning to become a star in the MMA community as well. As of now, Fury is set to rematch Deontay Wilder in February, but he does have plans for competing in MMA. Recently he was spotted training with Darren Till in Liverpool, and Fury has said that he intends to train with Conor McGregor.

In a recent interview, Fury made it clear that he wants to face Brock Lesnar, one way or another.
“Yeah, I fancy the fight with Brock for sure. Yeah, I watched a few of his fights for sure,” Fury said on the True Geordie podcast. “[He is] pretty handy, but I could flatten him in a WWE match or in a proper fight I could flatten Brock Lesnar in 30 seconds.”
While there is no set timetable for a move to MMA, it certainly has fans excited. With his recent foray into pro wrestling, it’s possible that Fury and Lesnar meet in the WWE. Lesnar has also retired from MMA, though he has done so and returned previously. A true contest, however, pitting one of the best heavyweight boxers of this generation against the biggest heavyweight star in MMA, would certainly be more titillating.
