Tyson Fury has teased a link-up with Conor McGregor ahead of a possible move to the UFC.

The heavyweight boxer is preparing for his WWE debut at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.

And with the Gypsy King enjoying his time away from the boxing ring, he has hinted at an even more ambition career-change by stepping into the world of MMA.

“Who knows? I have got something big coming up after this, even bigger than this. We might see Tyson Fury have his MMA debut this year. Tyson Fury is taking over,” Fury told Sky Sports News.

“I have been speaking to Conor about it. He’s willing to train me. It’s gonna be good.

“He’s just said any time that you are ready come over to Dublin and let’s go. I can’t wait, I’m going to take him up on the offer. Who knows we might be on a double-header.

“I come from a long line of bare-knuckle boxing champions. Getting hurt, getting bloodied is nothing new to me, it’s all a part of my heritage. I would love to get in there and smash someone up.”
