One of MMA’s biggest critics could be about to jump inside the cage himself.

Big-mouth heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury revealed talks are underway for him to make his mixed martial arts debut with Bellator.

Fury’s comments, made on Twitter, could easily be construed as deliberate trolling on April Fools’ Day – particularly considering he’s shot his mouth off about MMA and the UFC regularly in the past.
