I agree with the posters talking about the athletisim aspect of the game. Most boxers started at very young ages and the ones that make the big bucks (million+) weeded through a LOT of amateur and professional competition. Typically, money WILL attract the better athlete. Tyson in his prime is a better athlete than what we currently see overall in MMA. It is not a knock against MMA as I watch most events, I just know that MMA is a bit away from attracting the level of competition that boxing acquired over many many years.

MMA is still growing and still attracting new followers. In 20-50 years, it will be laughed at some of the "TUF" fighters that made their way to the prime stage and had minimal experience. Overall, Rich Franklin was a teacher not a fighter. You got guys like Sanchez, Kos(great wrestler), Bisping, Evans, etc that all made names by beating the ELITE of the division at some point. Now guys on the "Contender" that made it to the elite of boxing....got trashed. And we are talking about contenders that were 10-2, 22-0 (manfredo jr) 15-2 etc etc.

TO the topic, a prime tyson that learnes sub defense and TDD, would probably never need to use it. He was that powerful, fast, evasive and elusive that he would drop any MMA fighter 7 times out of 10 matches. His natural core power and speed have yet to be matched by any boxer/mma fighter. Watch his old training on youtube or the movie in theaters called "Tyson." His speed was blinding and we won his fights before he even threw a punch....people were that scared.

I just quoted this, sitting here thinking about a correct response, but my mind has gone blank from reading your stupidity.

Do these guys get footage of the other? Tyson would win hands down in the standup. He would probably even be able to level most guys DURING the takedown defense. Punching and sprawling (PnS). but the sick part of bjj/mma is that shiite just happens quickly. If fedor were able to get it to the ground, he'd be the faster man.

My money, Tyson, any one of his punches has the chance of killing a man's soul.

I was never a fan of Tim Sylvia but he before the Mercer fight was relevant. Mercer is NOT relevant in boxing at all; not for the past 20 years practically. He couldn't get a decent fight on TV if he tried. Now Mercer KTFO Timmy in 9 seconds. Are you telling me it's impossible for this guy to not have made a scene if he chose in his prime?

That is striking that is just not even close to being seen in the UFC yet.

i honestly can't decide who would win, but it's easy to see that either man can win in different ways.

fedor could try to close the distance while not taking too many punches, take tyson down and obviously its all over for tyson after that.

the thing is though, tysons power game was mainly down to the immense speed of his punches. he could throw a 3-5 punch combo and you wouldn't even know what had just happened. fedor managed to avoid arlovskis punches a bit, but theres no way he could do that with tyson. if fedor steps close, he'll be on the receiving end of 3-4 body shots and a few haymakers to boot. the fight would depend on whether fedor could get the clinch before tyson KO's/hurts him.

long story short, this fight could go either way on the night.
