Those are pretty bold words from Sonnen, though, he’s never been shy from expressing his opinions. As of right now, Tyson Fury has yet to respond to the former UFC fighter. Additionally, it’s unclear what Francis Ngannou makes of this commotion, as he’s still pondering his next move.
Hopefully, some clarity ensues in the coming weeks. Ngannou has been vocal about wanting to box and fight MMA simultaneously. If that’s the case, then maybe one day these two will square off against each other. And who knows, maybe they’ll follow-through with Tyson Fury’s wild fighting rules.
