Shaq Says He'll Fight Jose Canseco In MMA Bout

Jose Canseco's Twitter account has been a favorite of many for the near insane ramblings of the former baseball star. Recently, Canseco has split his time between complaining that he can't get back into baseball because of failed drug tests and challenging other celebrities to mixed martial arts bouts.

One of Jose's main targets has been former NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal. Shaq, no stranger to at least hanging around the fight game, has now said that he's more than willing to take the fight (via Chicago Tribune):

"I challenged him a long time ago. If he wants it done, he knows where to find me," O'Neal, who was listed at 7-foot-1 (2.16 m) and 325 pounds (147 kilograms) in his playing career, told Reuters on Tuesday in a telephone interview from Florida to promote Dove Men + Care skin product.

"He can be high off whatever, and I'll be high off Frosted Flakes,"

What'd Jose have to say on his Twitter to that?

Is this story a bunch of nonsense that will never lead to anything? Absolutely.

But is it funny? It sure is.
