UFC legend Daniel Cormier believes WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has little chance of beating Jon Jones in an MMA fight. 

Jones is the current UFC heavyweight champion after finally making his heavyweight debut in March where he beat Ciryl Gane with ease.

The tensions between Fury and Jones began with the former taking issue with Joe Rogan saying that Jones would beat the WBC world heavyweight champion in a street fight. 

Jones then suggested that Fury should face him inside an MMA cage, but if that were to happen, Cormier is not optimistic about Fury's chances of victory. 

“For the record, Tyson Fury, in a full-on fight, has no chance against Jon Jones,” Cormier stated on his YouTube channel

"That’s no knock on Fury. In a singular skill set with boxing gloves, Tyson Fury will beat Jones every day of the week.

“But if by chance they ever go into a full-on fight, Fury has about as much of a chance as the guy walking into a convenience store on the end of your block to beat Jon Jones in a free fight.

"It’s not going to happen – and this isn’t just 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. It’s crazy.”
