Former UFC fighter and MMA analyst Chael Sonnen shared his opinion on a possible boxing confrontation between Francis Ngannou and Tyson Fury under unique rules.
I bring it to you because to watch Tyson Fury beg, it was surprising. I don’t want to call it disappointing. It was really close to calling it that, but I don’t want to call it that. So Tyson comes to us with perhaps the dumbest idea in sports history. He knows it is.
