Fury Could Feature In New UFC Game

There’s a possibility we might see WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury in the new UFC game.

EA’s UFC 4 is expected to come out in the near future as fans will get a first glimpse into the game during the broadcast of UFC 251 which takes place July 11 on Abu Dhabi’s Fight Island.

A recent report by Forbes stated that Fury had struck a deal with EA to be included as a playable character in the game. And when UFC president Dana White was quizzed about the report, he had this to say:

“What? Where are you hearing this sh*t,” White responded with a laugh at the UFC Vegas 3 post-fight press conference last night (via MMA Fighting). “Tyson Fury might be.

“Aren’t we doing this in Abu Dhabi? Why are you asking me these questions now? Because I might tell you?”

The most recent game, UFC 3, was released in February 2018 and like UFC 2, featured Conor McGregor on the cover. This time, it will likely feature someone else with Jorge Masvidal supposedly being an option.

That’s going by one of the hints in Ali Abdelaziz’s tweet stating that lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov should be on the cover instead.

“This should be the new cover
This man never lost
I know who will be on the new cover
One is good but another has a double digit loses
EA sports people sucks @TeamKhabib”

What do you think of Fury being in the game? And who do you think should be on the cover of UFC 4?

Heavyweight champions Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua have agreed terms ahead of an all-British undisputed fight in 2021.

Fury currently holds the WBC title after dethroning long-time champion Deontay Wilder earlier this year. ‘The Gypsy King’ must beat the American in a trilogy fight before the Joshua bout can be made official. Joshua holds three heavyweight belts after beating Andy Ruiz last time out. The Mexican originally upset ‘AJ’ to win the belts but lost in a rematch against the Olympic gold medallist. Joshua is expected to face his mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev later this year.

In an interview with Sky Sports Eddie Hearn revealed financial terms have been agreed for the two Englishmen to fight in 2021, he said.

“The main positive news is that Joshua and Fury have agreed to a two-fight deal, in essence. The most difficult part of any deal is the financial element. I believe we’re in a great place where both guys have agreed to what that should be.

“We have not signed contracts because there are still things to be worked out.We’re pushing towards a place where they can be drafted, for 2021.

“Both guys are in agreement. The structure of the deal has been put forward, and agreed to by both parties. There is a model in place that both parties are happy with.

“It’s the biggest fight ever in British boxing. It doesn’t get bigger, and there will never be a bigger fight in our generation. Two guys, very different, who fight differently, have experienced different things and have come back from adversity.”

Fury has since took to social media to react to the news and speak about dealing with ‘The Bronze Bomber’ before taking part in the biggest fight in boxing history – check it out below.
