Longtime UFC Commentator Joe Rogan recently sparked a debate on who would win between Boxing Heavyweight Champ- Tyson Fury and UFC Heavyweight champ- Jon Jones on his podcast with guest- Andrew Schulz.

Fury and Jones Give Their Own Take

Joe Rogan hosted an episode of his podcast with comedian- Andrew Schulz. Rogan theorized who would win between Tyson Fury and Jon Jones, “You want to talk about who’s the baddest man on the planet? If Jon Jones and Tyson Fury are locked into a room, I’m pushing all of my chips on black,” Rogan said backing the UFC Champion. Rogan continued, “Tyson Fury is an amazing boxer, he doesn’t have a f***ing chance in hell of making it out of that room. He has no chance of making it out of that room. Zero chance. He (Fury) would have to catch Jon immediately with one punch, and I just don’t see that happening, man. The threat of the takedown looms so large. That shot will come so unexpectedly. When he gets his hands around you, you’ll be so stunned.”

The moment certainly caught Fury’s attention and the heavyweight champion wholeheartedly disagrees with Rogan’s take. Fury lashed out to Joe Rogan in a tirade, “I heard Joe Rogan say something about me, and I’ve been off all the social medias and didn’t reply to that little p****, little f***ing midget, bald-headed midget,” Fury then gave his take, “I heard him say that Jon Jones could f*** me up if we were in the room together. I don’t think so. Not a man born from a mother could f*** me up, in a room, on our own. Whatever happens in that room, I’d be walking out. Not a f***ing problem.”

Jon Jones certainly sides with Joe Rogan’s opinion, Jones said via Twitter, “Hey Tyson (Fury), it seems like Joe (Rogan) may have struck a nerve. I’ll admit there’s no one touching you in that ring right now, but let’s not let that confuse you with what would happen if you stepped in my cage. If you ever want to put some of these questions you got going on to rest, give Dana a call. I’ll help you out.”

Fury then responded with another video, “I see Jon Jones has piped up, Jon you talk about me in a cage, I’m not a cage-fighter, I’m a boxer, the best boxer actually. So if you want to come into a boxing ring and 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, me.” Fury concluded, “You’re a great fighter Jon, but you’re definitely no boxer that’s for sure, all the best, good luck.”

Jones then fired back quickly on Twitter, “Yesterday, Tyson says, “No man born from a mother can beat me,” today he says “Jon can never beat me in a boxing ring.” Yeah I’m glad we got that clarified. You just switched your beat up faster than Travis Barker, impressive.”

Francis Ngannou wanted to remind everyone that he’s wanted to box Fury and that he’s always been there, “I have been here the whole time Tyson Fury. Since none of these boxers want to fight, let’s make it official.” Ngannou tweeted.
