boxing v mma & Fedor V Mike Tyson

Now somehow ive got myself into an argument about boxing v mma and basically who would win if fedor and tyson fought.
Now Im certain that fedor would take tyson (peak) to the floor and turn his face to mush however others think that fedor has never faced such refined punching power as tyson and fedor with not take such a brutal onslaught.

Weve seen boxers get pummelled eg hunt v nishijima (sp)
BUT the fight thats really giving me a problem with my argument is timmah v mercer. Even highlighting the fact that kimbo battered him doesnt sem to help.

So who would win and why. Yeah i know its a stupid disussion but could do with the help non the less

A prime Tyson with a couple months of MMA training would destroy anyone not named Lesnar.

- Tyson in his glory days...

I don't know man... a prime Tyson is pretty f*cking awseome. If he had been in MMA he would have wrecked a lot of people.
Tyson + TDD + SUBDefense = The new baddest man on the planet, you wouldn't even see those punches coming.
And I'm not even a boxing fan.

Fedor. A boxer is unlikely to have the take down defense needed. Tyson would get subbed, GnP'd to dust very very quickly.

I agree though, Tyson with the right training for TDD and ground work. He'd be damn scary.

Tyson is a way better athlete...give him a couple months of mma training...specifically take down defense and wrestling. He would destroy Fedor and everyone else not named Lesnar.

- Tyson in his prime is a freak...

Too bad he didn't say with training.

Fedor.

... A couple monthes and he'd stop Fedors take downs? I was thinking if he trained MMA from the 1990's or started off with a wrestling background.

If Fedor trained a couple monthes just boxing, he'd own Tyson in a boxing match.

Yeah exactly.

50 bucks says Tyson knocks Fedor's head into the stands. don't be fooled by all these so called strikers with "punching power" Tyson is the real deal.
