Tyson Fury doesn’t seem interested in meeting Jon Jones in the cage.

On Thursday, Fury blasted Joe Rogan after Rogan claimed Jones would beat the boxer in a street fight.

“I’m the baddest man on the planet,” said Fury. “I heard Joe Rogan say something about me the other day, and I’ve been off of all social media and didn’t reply to the little p—- Little f—– m—–, bald-headed m—–. I heard him say Jon Jones could f— me up if we were in a room together.

“I don’t think so. Not a man born from their mother could f— me up in a room on our own. Whatever happens in that room, I’ll be walking out — not a f—— problem.”

Jones saw Fury’s comments and immediately challenged him to a cage fight.

Fury has since responded and is now saying that “he’s not a cagefighter” but would fight Jones in a boxing ring.

“I see Jon Jones has piped up,” “Jon, you talk about me in a cage. I’m not a cagefighter, mate. I’m a boxer – the best boxer actually. So if you want to come into a boxing ring to fight me, be my guest, let me know. You don’t have to call anybody else – no Dana, nobody. You call me. Because it’s a boxing fight, and I’m the boss in this game.

“You’re a great fighter, Jon, but you’re definitely no boxer, that’s for sure.”

Jones went on to mock Fury for changing his tune so quickly.
