Heavyweight boxer calls UFC champ Cain Velasquez a 'small, stiff idiot' and threatens to 'smash him'

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

The old "Boxing vs. MMA" debate has reared its ugly head once again, thanks to some off-color comments by undefeated pugilist Tyson Fury.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez reclaimed his 265-pound title last weekend with a five round drubbing of Junior dos Santos in the main event of UFC 155 (watch it here), which emanated from the MGM Grand Garden Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Tyson Fury was not impressed by his performance.

The undefeated pugilist trashed the 11-1 mixed martial arts (MMA) champ via his official Twitter account, asking for a crossover fight against Velasquez since the Klitschko brothers "are too much pussies" to step into the boxing ring and make magic happen.

"Cain Velasquez is a little midget on steds bring it on I'll fight. Not a man born from his mother can beat me! I challenge u to fight all in in a cage or ring! It could be billed as the man vs midget lets get it on! U small stiff idiot. I'm the new baddest man on the planet I'll smash @cainmma. Let's get it on! U all herd it hear first if @cainmma has balls to fight me then lets go!"

Alrighty then.

To be fair, Fury is 6' 9" tall, so a lot of people not named Stefan Struve would probably appear to be a midget against him (Cain is 6' 1"). Not that it matters, since this fight will never take place and the 24-year-old European is just calling attention to himself.

Still, what MMA fan wouldn't want to see him flail his wings as Velasquez double-legs him into a helpless heap against the cage wall?
