It’s almost shocking that this fight hasn’t somehow fallen apart again, as this is the third attempt at booking this marquee match up. The first time, Fury pulled out due to an illness, which led to MMA’s own Tyron Woodley stepping up to rematch Paul. Spoiler: it ended poorly for “The Chosen One”. The second time, Fury was unable to get a visa to the United States because of relations with the sanctioned Kinahan crime syndicate.

But we’re here. They’re there. In Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Fists will fly. They already nearly did!
