Mike Tyson: I’d have chosen MMA over boxing
Phil D. Jay*
WBN Editor

Ex-champ would have been swayed to UFC for big pay-days

One-time ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ Mike Tyson may never have entered into the professional boxing ranks if Mixed Martial Arts would have been as popular in the 1980’s as it is today.

The former undisputed king of the ring believes that the style of f!ghting in the likes of the UFC would have suited him more than donning the gloves for the Marquess of Queensberry Rules and money would ultimately have been the deciding factor.

"If they had big paydays, yes, no doubt about it,” Tyson told This is 50 in a recent interview.

“I want to slam them, I want to hold them, I want to choke them. That's what you want to do anyway if you're in a street f!ght right?

"You want to hit them, but you want to get them too, real good. Get them down, get on top of them. So, you have more aspects. If it's not working this way, you can kick them in the f***ing head, you know."


Tyson, 46, is currently travelling the world on the back of his successful stint on Broadway with his hit one-man show ‘The Undisputed Truth’ and has been retired from boxing since a string of defeats leading up to 2005.

The New Yorker was rumoured to be attempting a career in MMA on numerous occasions in the latter part of his career, although the move failed to materialize as the f!ghter turned his hand into acting following the release of his movie ‘Tyson’in 2008.

yea tyson would have not survived. You really need to learn different forms of martial arts and I can't see tyson doing that with his brain capacity.

Boxing is one of the hardest things to learn and there is a science behind that tyson believe it or not studied like he was a fu*king chemist every day with cus and understood fully all the aspects of boxing and executed them

One of boxing's most thoughtful and eloquent icons... They say certain things come to a f!ghter naturally, they also say God either gives you wings or gills... So its hard to say that Iron Mike would have picked up BJJ or wrestling so easily, but to say he would be too dumb for MMA?

like dude said when he had Cus in his corner and his head on straight, there was little I think Tyson couldn't learn. He did what ever in the fu*k Cus told him to do...his stand up would've been unmatched and with them small a.ss gloves he wouldn't have to try and push them sh*ts back

I been learning martial arts since I was young, and I had to train people who box they were some slow learners, and could not keep up with my punches, maybe pro's is different.

Tyson would literally k!ll somebody with those Mma gloves. He would shatter jaws and fracture skulls. Real sh*t. Who's that idiot who said boxing ain't complex? If its so easy then why don't all these UFC guys go box instead and make 100 times the money? Boxers make more in one f!ght that most Mma guys make in a career. Lmao. Boxing is so technical it's not even funny.

He would have k!lled n*ggas with MMA gloves. That sh*t only covers your knuckles. He would have most likely been a wrestler too...this sh*t sounds scary. Nobody in MMA would sign tho f!ght him lmaoo.

Would have depended on how seriously he would have took wrestling and BJJ. Wrestling isn't just something you can pick up in a year or so. Highly-skilled kickboxers like Badr Hari have tried MMA and couldn't cut it because of their non-ability to grapple.

Melvin Manhoef can hit like a mack truck but gets submitted with ease when the majority of his f!ghts hit the ground.

They would be too scared to even stand up with him to get a lucky shot. Plus Tyson had good defense throughout his early career and he probably wouldn't have met that dumb hoe Robin Givens to fu*k up his mental and be one the reasons for his downfall.
