Mike Tyson is not what one would call a stranger to the world of MMA. We've seen UFC president Dana White hang out with Mike and he has talked about MMA plenty in the past. In one of the strangest recent moments of "MMA in the Mainstream Media" Tyson was on Rosie O'Donnell's show where they discussed their mutual love of the sport.
First, a quote from Huffington Post's article on the meeting:
As many consider Mike Tyson to be one of the greatest boxers of all time, there may be some added weight to his words when he says Fedor Emelianenko is the greatest MMA fighter of all time.
It helps that he's not alone in that assessment of the now 35-year old athlete, who went undefeated for ten years. But he's no longer at the apex of his career, so O'Donnell and Tyson agreed that they're currently more excited about Urijah Faber.
Tyson laughed, calling him "the little guy" -- Faber stands 5'6" -- and saying, "He's so cute with the hair." For O'Donnell, she loved how relaxed he was during a fight. "They have him in the headlock and they have him in the crucifix, and he's just sitting there, like he's enjoying a night with a lady of the evening," she marveled.
