Tyson Fury still has a problem with Joe Rogan over the Jon Jones remarks. Rogan made the headlines recently after boxing star Tyson Fury called him out over a controversial take. During an episode of JRE, Rogan said Jones would come out on top if Jones and Fury were locked in a room together. His comments did not sit well with ‘The Gypsy King,’ who sent him a profanity-laden response.

Unsurprisingly, Jon Jones entered the scene later, defending Rogan and beefing with Fury. After a brief back and forth on social media, they agreed they would not best each other in each other’s sport. While Fury and Jones may have ceased fire, the undefeated boxer still had a go at Rogan during a public appearance.

He said, “If Tyson Fury really wants to fight Jon Jones in the UFC, I will make it happen … Let’s do it.

If Tyson Fury is serious, and he wants to fight Jon Jones, let’s start talking.”
