Chael Sonnen: Tyson Fury's idea is the dumbest idea
by | VIEW 262
Chael Sonnen commented on the potential fight between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou. Now that the Nigerian is no longer under contract for the UFC, a fight between them seems like a realistic option. Sonnen is a bit surprised by the conditions Fury has set.
If all the conditions are confirmed, it will be really interesting. “I see Tyson Fury come out over the weekend and finally clear up first what we’re going to do first with Francis,” Sonnen said on his YouTube channel, as quoted by express.co.uk “They’ve always said they’re going to make up a sport.
These two were going to do a game, but they were going to do something combat related. For reasons unknown, they weren’t going to box. Francis offered to box, and for reasons unknown, Tyson did not accept that invitation, and they were going to make up rules.
Tyson finally laid out for us what they are. They were going to fight in a cage. I have no idea why. They’re going to fight in a cage. OK, fine. They’re going to wear four-once gloves. I have no idea why, but OK, fine. They are then going to follow boxing rules, the rules of Queensbury."

Sonnen thinks Fury gave 'the stupidest idea'
Many are surprised by the conditions, but who knows? Maybe Ngannou and Fury know best why they want that, and what it will bring. "I put this out there because of how disappointing it is to see these boxers as beggars. Guys that are hot to fight to go out there and get it on your own, that have physical capabilities that other men can only dream of.
But they don’t know how to go out there and get it on their own. They just don’t know how. I bring it to you because to watch Tyson Fury beg, it was surprising. I don’t want to call it disappointing. It was really close to calling it that, but I don’t want to call it that.
So, Tyson comes to us with perhaps the dumbest idea in sports history. He knows it is”.
