That didn't take long. Heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury is frustrated with his inability to get a fight with either of the Klitschko brothers, Fury decided to call out newly crowned UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez.

Via Twitter, Fury said, "If the klitchkos r 2 much of [expletive] to fight me then I'll go & fight the MMA heavyweight champ at least he is game. Wouldn't last 2 rounds! ... Cain valasquez is a little midget on steds bring it on I'll fight. Not a man born from his mother can beat me! Contact Hennessy sports! ... I'm the new baddest man on the planet I'll smash @cainmma. Let's get it on!"

Fury is 20-0 and has four technical knockouts in his last five fights. That's fantastic for him. As a boxer, he looks like he has a great future.

But this past weekend, Velasquez showed how well-rounded his MMA game is. He was an All-American wrestler at the Division I level, and had no problem taking down Junior dos Santos. Does British-born Fury think he can learn a ground game in a few months? He may want to think about what happened when James Toney tried that.

Thanks, Knuckledragger.
