Daniel Cormier doesn’t see Tyson Fury having any chance to defeat Jon Jones if the pair met in a fight that had anything resembling an MMA ruleset. 

Fury jumped into MMA headlines last week when he broke his social media hiatus in order to fire back at Joe Rogan’s comments regarding how a fight between himself and Jones might play out. “The Gypsy King” and Jones have engaged in a heated back and forth following Fury’s response to Rogan, and now even Dana White has publically said that he’d love to try and organize that fight in the UFC.

The idea of a bout between the two heavyweights has inspired plenty of interesting takes throughout the MMA community, and Cormier is one of the people that doesn’t see the proposed matchup going well for Fury.

“Now we got those guys talking, Tyson Fury and Jon Jones,” Cormier said on his YouTube channel. “And for the record, Tyson Fury in a full on fight has no chance against Jon Jones. And that’s no knock on Fury.”

Daniel Cormier Explains Jon Jones’ Advantage Over Tyson Fury 

The closest thing the combat sports world has seen to the proposed Jones vs. Fury fight was when Conor McGregor stepped into the boxing ring to face Floyd Mayweather, and “DC” maintains that a boxing match is the only time Fury could ever beat Jones.

“In a singular skillset with boxing gloves, Tyson Fury will beat Jon Jones every day of the week. But if by chance they ever got into a full-on fight, Fury has about as much of a chance as that guy walking into a convenience store on the end of your block to beat Jon Jones. In a free fight. It’s not gonna happen. And this is not even me knocking Tyson Fury, this is me telling you the absolute truth. Tyson Fury is the world’s best boxer, but the world’s best boxer stands such a slight chance to beat these elite mixed martial artists.”

Few combat sports fans appear to be under the impression that a fight between Fury and Jones will actually be booked, but admittedly there’s also still no clear plan for when “Bones” will be making the first defense of his UFC heavyweight title. 

The 35-year-old submitted Ciryl Gane in his heavyweight debut at UFC 285 to claim his second UFC belt and add to his legacy in the sport, but Jones has seemingly been more interested in feuding with Fury and Francis Ngannou than booking a fight against one of the division’s top contenders.
