Video: Mike Tyson comments on possible MMA fight

"It would be interesting to get in there, I think. Imagine being in a fight with somebody and the only thing you can do is box them and if his hands are superior to yours, then what? You're dead meat, basically. So why not grab somebody and throw them down and put 'em in a headlock? I don't know. That'd be pretty interesting."

Inside MMA catches up with former boxing great "Iron" Mike Tyson, who terrorized the "sweet science" in the mid-to-late eighties before his personal and professional collapse. While the "Dynamite Kid" is far removed from his days of making any kind of impact inside the squared circle or the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), it shouldn't stop us from speculating what kind of mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter he could have become had the UFC been around 20 years ago -- and been able to pay him 17 billion dollars per fight.
