Tyson Fury continues to tease a potential fight against UFC champion Jon Jones.

Last month, Fury found himself in a beef with Jones when the two argued about who was the baddest man on the planet.

UFC president Dana White inserted himself into the beef when he offered Fury a contract to fight Jones in the UFC in an MMA match.

After Fury turned down an MMA match, Jones countered by saying he was willing to box Fury.

On Friday, Fury jumped on Twitter spaces with some fans and claimed he was offered a “hybrid fight” against Jones by the UFC.

“I’ve been in talks with Francis Ngannou for a hybrid fight, there’s talks about me and Jon Jones doing a hybrid fight, as we talk right now I received an offer from the UFC yesterday, so you never know what’s going to happen, the future is bright, and I have a lot of options out there and it seems at the moment I’m struggling to get an actual boxing opponent.”

White has been adamant that he’s not interested in hosting a boxing match between Jones and Fury and that he wanted the fight to be in MMA for the UFC heavyweight title.
