"I didn't know who he was until this," Velasquez said. "He's just using my name to gain publicity, which he has done (because) everybody is bringing it up. I'm not a boxer, I'm a mixed martial artist. If he wants to fight, he can go into the UFC, fight and work his way up like everybody else does."
Velasquez seems to think that Fury is just using his name to try to get free exposure in the media.
"Nothing is given to you in this world," Velasquez added. " So, to me, it's like don't talk about it, go ahead and do it. That's what I have to say about that. He has to work his way up the ladder like everybody else, like I did, into this sport. Nobody gets a free ticket to a title shot, know what I mean? Everybody has to work their way up in this world."
Velasquez thinks Fury will have to work his way up in the UFC ranks if he hopes to ever fight him for the title.
Velasquez, who recently defeated Junior dos Santos, isn't sure who his next UFC opponent will be, but he definitely won't be fighting Fury anytime soon.
Velasquez is expected to fight the winner of the UFC 156 tilt between Alistair Overeem and Antonio Silva.
