Tyson would have been one of the greats of mma if he would have fought in it. Its too late now to learn much. Fedor would be smarter than timmeh and not make it a boxing match anyway.
Fedor>tyson in mma
Tyson>fedor in boxing

Are you kidding? Why would Tyson ever even stand a chance against Fedor? Fedor is not a ******* idiot, he'd shoot in on Tyson as soon as the fight started and wreck h im in under 3 seconds. No one said anything about a straight boxing match, that's like asking who would win a soccer match....a punter in the NFL or a soccer player in MLS.

actually a punter in the NFL stands a pretty good chance against MLS players they suck.

Tyson with MMA training in his prime would beat anyone.

Yeah exactly.
I think you are underestimated the value of a great athlete and too biased towards MMA/Fedor.

You do understand that Tyson could have been sick at almost any sport he wanted to do. Particularly boxing/wrestling

Fedor is tough and experienced as hell....but Tyson is 100x athlete he is. A prime tyson could have heavyweight champion wrestler if he wanted. I'm telling you dude...he would destroy him.

Yes, and you know that Tyson would have been able to train wrestling to a degree that a national Sambo champion and one of fastest, most experienced and explosive MMA grapplers would not be able to take him down? I'd like to know how you came to that conclusion.

Just because he was great at boxing does not mean he would be great at wrestling. Cro Cop was one of the best strikers in MMA and was good in K-1, yet his BJJ wasn't/isn't that good. Schilt is a great striker and look at his TDD/MMA record.

You can have as many "what if" situations you can think of, the fact is, Fedor is a monster MMA HW who is very fast, explosive, and is a Sambo national champion many times over, where as Tyson is a great boxer and just because he's great at boxing, does not mean he will be great at wrestling or any other physical sport, no matter how good of an athlete he is.

It takes more than just being a good athlete to do well in things like wrestling, and just because Tyson was a great boxer, does not mean he would have the skill to be a great wrestler(which he would have to be to stop Fedor's takedowns).

That fight starts on the feet and if tyson in his prime would hit fedor garanteed itd be lights out. A punchers chance though.

You are not understanding the point of being a great athlete. If you have noticed...the truly great athletes of today are not just good at one sport.

Tyson...a thick 5-10/11 220 lbs with almost no body fat...insane leg/core stength....very low center of gravity. Sick agility/footwork/handspeed. He could have been a sick wrestler.

Why do you think Lesnar was able to dominate MMA so quickly...he is a sick athlete and massive human being. The same as Tyson.

I am also not just saying all you need to be is a sick athlete....you need to have the fighting//warrior instinct. Which obviously...Tyson has.
