“McGregor is going to die,” Mike Tyson said Monday in the Pardon My Take of Barstool Sports podcast. “I was angry because I thought they would use MMA rules against boxing, because that’s what it’s all about – can the boxer beat the MMA guy?” But Conor put his dumb ass in a position To be eliminated, because this guy has been doing this all his life since he was a little baby, and Conor can not kick or grab and stuff.

“It’s going to be exciting,” Tyson said. “All this is exciting because it has a circus atmosphere, because you love the fact that you see – the character of Conor.How, Floyd has never met a character like this …” Boy! Come on, what are you? I mean, ‘hey, man, that’s disrespectful,’ but the thing is, it’s so fun, man, you know, I can not stop. ”
