Weeks after brutal feud with Joe Rogan and Jon Jones, Tyson Fury takes a step back from his bold challenge to UFC champ: “Jones will eat me up like a breakfast burrito”

Tyson Fury continues to have an issue with Joe Rogan regarding the Jon Jones remarks.

Rogan recently made headlines when boxing star Tyson called him out for a controversial statement. On an episode of JRE, Joe stated that if Jones and Fury were locked in a room together, Jon would come out on top. Tyson, displeased with his comments, responded with a profanity-filled message.

Not surprisingly, Jon later stepped in to defend Rogan and engage in a verbal feud with Fury. After a brief exchange on social media, they both agreed that they would not compete against each other in their respective sports.
