That's not stupidity, that's greed layered on top of greed. When Cus died, Mike was like a lost little boy, and King is a ****in SNAKE. He's corrupted many great fighters with his empty dollar sign promises and pots of fake gold.
As for this thread, it's a little naive to think Chuck Liddell would stand much more than a vague chance against Tyson in his prime. Chuck would have to pull off his best fight X 10 to get out of there without serious or deadly physical harm. To win, he'd most likely have to submit Mike in some way; choke him out, or break his arm or leg to win, because Liddell wouldn't have the punching power to floor Tyson with his fists... certainly not while Tyson is also punching back! Iron Mike used to be one of the most allusive fighters in boxing history (save for perhaps Mohammed Alli), so there's no guarantee Chuck would even be able to land a shot with his hands. Tyson's jaw was/is probably better than any MMA fighter in action today, and he's been hit by some big guys... some weighing damn near 90lbs. more than Chuck Liddell.
