Conor McGregor has offered to train Tyson Fury for a potential career in MMA

Tyson Fury has always lived a crazy lifestyle, but October has been weird and wacky - even for his standards!

At the start of the month, the Gypsy King was expecting to be just recovering from his horrendous eye injury suffered at the hands of Otto Wallin just a few weeks before in Las Vegas.

That night he defeated the Swede on the way to a rematch with Deontay Wilder, which is expected to happen in February 2020.

But just a couple of days into this month, he was offered the opportunity of a lifetime by WWE.

Fast forward a few weeks and it was official - Fury was going to partake in a wrestling match for the first time in his life, and it would be against the giant that is Braun Strowman.

Fury has been training hard for that match, which takes place in Saudi Arabia this coming Thursday, but he's already making plans to break into another sport.

Speaking to Sky Sports at an NFL game at Wembley Stadium earlier today, Fury has said that a career in Mixed Martial Arts could be in his future, and a global phenomenon has already offered to coach him.

“I’ve got something big coming up after this. Even more bigger than this,” said the lineal heavyweight champion of the world.

“We might see Tyson Fury make his MMA debut this year too. It’s different but like I say Tyson Fury is taking over.

I’ve been speaking to Conor [McGregor] about it and he’s willing to train me and it’s going to be good.

“I come from a long line of bare knuckle boxing champions. Getting hurt, you saw my last fight with blood everywhere, it’s nothing new to me and all part of my heritage and upbringing so I’d love to get in there and smash someone up.

“He [McGregor] said any time you are ready, when you’ve got the time, let’s go to Dublin and start training. So I can’t wait to take him up on the offer.

“Who knows we might be on a double header, the Gypsy King and Conor McGregor.”

Fury inside the Octagon would be a sight to behold, but he seems genuinely keen on the idea of trying to conquer another sport.

It could be pure carnage - and we haven't even seen him wrestle yet - but pair Fury and McGregor together in any capacity and you get box office gold...Dana White is probably rubbing his hands together as we speak!
