Shaquille O'Neal Agrees to Fight Jose Canseco in a Mixed Martial Arts Bout

Former Major League Baseball player, wannabe MMA fighter, and serial steroid user Jose Canseco, in an effort to stay somewhat relevant, has been challenging Shaquille O'Neal to a mixed martial arts fight on Twitter.  

Shaq has been training in MMA for years, and would absolutely annihilate Canseco considering he's close to a foot taller and probably 100 pounds heavier, but Shaq has never responded to Canseco's challenges—until Tuesday.

"I challenged him a long time ago," Shaq told Reuters in an interview. "If he wants it done, he knows where to find me. He can be high off whatever, and I'll be high off Frosted Flakes."

When word of this got to Canseco, he took to Twitter again, tweeting:

Then tweeting "therealdonaldtrump":

And Wednesday night he's tweeting Shaq for his phone number:

Only time will tell if the fight actually takes place. Until then we can still enjoy Canseco's first and only professional fight against the 7'2" (same size as Shaq) Hong Man Choi at Dream 9.
