Cain Velasquez responds to Tyson Fury: You got to work your way up in the ladder

UFC Heavyweight champion has finally “tweeted back” at Tyson Fury’s ridiculous call-outs.

Cain Velasquez revealed he never heard about about Tyson Fury, but would be open for any type of match-up if the Heavyweight boxer moves to the UFC and works his way up in the ranks. The champ rejected the possibility of an exhibition fight with Fury, once again emphasizing his comments on the existing food chain the UFC Heavyweight division.

Velasquez might learn the identity of his next opponent at next month’s UFC 156, when Alistair Overeem and Antonio Silva go toe-to-toe inside the Octagon.

    If Tyson Fury came to Dana White and asked for a fight with Cain or whomever The UFC HW Champ was, he'd laugh. If he really had a sense of humor, he'd allow it, so we could all have a good laugh.

    The discussion of this is a complete joke. Any HW in the division, let alone The Champion, would wipe the floor with the guy. This point has been proven already and by the oldest, smallest veteran The UFC had to offer.

    On another note, my God that girl in the Noise Bot add, wearing the "i pooped today" t-shirt is hot.

    Tyson Fury is just trying to get a name for himself off the back of Cain recent success…

    He knows UFC is the fastest growing sport and he wants to create a bad ass image for himself to sell more PPV when he fights….This is just a stunt, he has no intention of fighting in UFC. Its just hot water.. this was just free marketing for tyson Fury but he ends up looking like a dick.

    Tyson Fury= another zero from the outside trying to get attention from the inside.
    If he was so good he would be fighting top tier talent, but oh yeah…he is nobody….

      20-0 with 14 KOs is not a nobody. In MMA terms he is irrelevant I agree but he is a top 5 HW boxer who has steadily improved and who knows, if he makes the switch to MMA we already know he has great hands.

    Cain's right, Fury tried to get his name out there by being controversial and he did it,

    It's a shame the media is making Cain respond to this and even worse they are asking Cain if he would take the fight or make Fury climb the ladder… sounds silly but putting Cain in that position and Cain giving the obvious answer of he has to work his way up gives Fury something to to go off.

    Hopefully this is the last we hear for it

      @ Keith

      The sad reality of it is, that addressing this in any manner gives it and Fury credence. He / any Champ should have one pat answer for this question…I have no idea who or what you are talking about. Just refuse to acknowledge it in any way. Even if a reported is stupid enough to waste his time phrasing, re-phrasing or edifying Cain to the question, he should simply say…no idea as to what you are talking about. Never engage it. For doing so, gives something for Fury to come back with. Now, Fury can talk about his ladder…blah, blah, blah. Who cares?

      No discussion. No controversy.
