I don't get the point of the special rules match. If Tyson wants to fight a Pride FC fighter, he can bend to the Pride FC rules. Why fight otherwise? If CroCop would be at 100% without his left roundhouse, then he'd have been a boxer on Showtime, not a K-1 Fighter on FSN.
Fighting in MMA with boxing rules is about as valiant as going over to your neighbor's house in the middle of the night and beating his ass while he's asleep.
Tyson wants attention, therefore he can't lose, even if he makes a moron out of himself. There's no reason for him to bend the rules in his favor other than he doesn't have what it takes to fight anymore. Thumbs down- big time.
I say that Tyson gets thrown to Fedor instead, full Pride FC Bushido rules in place, and then Tyson can learn about what it's like to get a punch while he's on his fat back.
