As the conversation unfolded, Bisping candidly assessed Fury’s fate in an MMA fight. Recognizing Fury’s formidable stature and his fighting lineage, hailing from a family of resilient gypsies, Bisping acknowledged his opponent’s toughness.

However, when it comes to a regulated MMA environment like the octagon, Bisping didn’t hold back in expressing his belief that Fury would stand “no chance in hell” against a highly skilled fighter like Jon Jones.
With no weapons allowed and a variety of disciplines to contend with, Bisping firmly asserted, “He’s not gonna have a bloody chance! He’s not gonna have a chance in hell, no way!”
