Tyson Fury labels UFC star Bisping a 'first class pr**k'

Tyson Fury has continued his baiting of the UFC's top athletes, labelling Michael Bisping a "first class pr**k" after the Brit said Cain Velasquez would "destroy" Fury in a fight.

Fury created headlines for himself earlier in the week by claiming he is the "baddest man on the planet", and he challenged UFC heavyweight champion Velasquez to a fight "in the ring or in a cage".

Velasquez has not responded but, in a recent interview with the Mirror, Bisping offered his thoughts on a theoretical matchup, claiming the boxer would be out of his depth and would get "absolutely destroyed".

Fury has now taken issue with Bisping, writing on Twitter: "I hear I'd get killed by Velasquez. Not in a million years!

"I think Michael Bisping is a first class pr**k! Him and Velasquez at the same time couldn't beat me! My friend KO'd Bisping. Ask him."

Fury went on to tweet at Bisping: "You are a w**ker who is sh*t at fighting, ask anyone."

Bisping has clearly sensed Fury's intention to make a name for himself via the constant jibes, and refused to rise to the boxer's taunts. Instead he just told his followers to ignore Fury.

"Everyone just ignore that excuse of a man, Tyson something. He's trying to get hype, I'd never heard of him till he called out Cain."
