Video: Mike Tyson says Chael Sonnen is a better trash talker than Muhammed Ali ... 'hands down'

"There's not a man alive who can whip me. I'm too fast. I'm too smart. I'm too pretty. I should be a postage stamp. That's the only way I'll ever get licked."

If we could have just a moment of silence before we get started.

..........................

Ahem, former Heavyweight Boxing Champion Mike Tyson was a special guest (very special) on the most recent edition of the atrociously-named "Octo-questions," a quick Q&A featured on UFC Tonight with none other than SB Nation's own Ariel Helwani.

What we know from Tyson's appearance is that WWE CEO Vince McMahon can beat up UFC President Dana White (settling this debate), Evander Holyfield's ear would have tasted a lot better with hot sauce on it, and UFC Light Heavyweight Chael Sonnen is a better trash talker than legendary pugilist Muhammed Ali.

Wait, what?

"Chael Sonnen," insisted "Iron" Mike. "Chael talks too much. I think Chael believes what he says. Chael hands down."

High praise (pun intended) for the former division number one contender, who battles Mauricio Rua later this year on FOX (details here), especially considering the disparaging comments "The American Gangster" made (see them here) against Tyson just last year.

Perhaps that's the trash talk he's referring to.
