Does this sound like Herschel Walker's next fight to anyone else?

Tyson knew what Randy was gonna do to Toney because as a fan and somebody who has some actual respect for th sport he watches and understand the level of skill and the intricateness of the ground game. As a fan I don't think Tyson would be stupid enough to think he could count on landing that one big punch early.
Was going to long post but this summed it up for me.

I'd be really interested to see him fight though, wouldn't expect much but I'd be well hyped for it.

In my best Mike Tyson voice.."Well, I thaw how great it worked out for Jamthe Toney, and I figured, what the f&*%, I'll take a crack at it."


In all seriousness, if he dedicates some real time for the next say, 12 months to just training takedown defense and the clinch with a solid MMA Camp (i'd love to see him train WITH Randy)...I'd pay to see him fight.

So you liked him when he chewed off Evander Hollifield's ear?

Tyson was a god. If it's OK for a boxer to give someone brain damage why is it so wrong to bite a piece of someone's ear off. I know what I'd rather endure.

If he stays motivated and trains hard, he'll probably land a deal with the UFC.

I hope he really does make his MMA debut since his one of the best HW boxers ever and i'm a huge fan.

Yeah, I've only trained in MMA for fun and not actually to fight. Those two underground fights that I did were for fun. It is very understandable that Mike is comfortable with retirment, but I can also see how someone would jump to conclusions!

Sorry I only posted this thread for fun. I agree, Tyson won't fight MMA. He looks in a good mental state and I hope he stays there. Mike is a very misunderstood guy, a big teady bear who snaps from time to time like most of us. Way too old now to make an impact in any sport, but a great of his time! Love the dude.
