    Mike Tyson in UFC?

    I understand that at one point people wanted to get Mike Tyson into the UFC. I was talking to my friend about this, and he thought that Tyson would dominate. Personally, I could see him winning some fights, but against people his size who have grappling experience, I can't see him having a huge advantage. Anyone wanna speculate on how he would have done?
    PS. I searched and didn't find anything on this.
    PPS. I know speculating is kinda stupid but still...

    Well, he has been trained and conditioned for boxing. Even if he had grappling training and Muay Thai to teach him kicks and knees, I'd still say he'd get owned by 90% of the fighters.

    They've been saying Tyson was gonna be in the UFC for a long time. Every time the dyslexic bastard gets banned for his latest moronic stunt there have been rumbles of his showing up in the UFC. It'll never happen, though-his promoters don't wanna see him get raped in the Octagon. And keep in mind that he really isn't that good a boxer, when you think of the skill level of some MMA strikers then he'll get owned at his own game, let alone trying to play theirs.

    Tyson may be a nutjob and a moron and a freak and will likely get his ass pwned in UFC, but he is definitely a good boxer.
    Deluxe247 tells it like it is:

    you ninja fags just got owned in a bad way. this thread should go to the classics and mega thread forum due to the sheer size of taebo_master and gajusceaser's penis. (with which they just smacked across these ninja's faces)

    There is one fact: The UFC simply doesn't have the payroll to pay for a Tyson fight. If they paid Tyson even a small percentage of what he's used to, they'd end up having to increase payment for several other fighters too, and it would just be costly. IF he shows up in MMA at all, he's more likely to be seen in Pride.

    If you think Tyson isn't that good of a boxer, you don't know what the hell you are talking about. Mike Tyson isn't a good boxer compared to who? Lewis? Hollyfield? Two other guys that have been the absolute best in their division in their time. Same as Tyson.

    With the exception of Rampage, I haven't seen anyone in MMA demonstrate real boxing skill. Most of the "good" strikers charge in with straight 1-2 punches. Thats what Liddell did against Jackson, and that's why he got schooled. Because Rampage knows how to box, and consistently beat Liddell to the punch. And hit Liddell without getting hit himself. That's what good boxers do against brawlers. Yet Jackson isn't close to Tyson's caliber, otherwise he'd be boxing, where money is a hell of a lot better at the championship level. Tyson is a brawler compared to say, Holyfield or Lewis, but compared to the strikers in MMA, he's a masterful technician.
