I don't know much about boxing, but being one of the 10 best ever seems pretty good considering the sport has been around for, what, 120 years or so?

Tyson was a ranked contender, there is a difference.

In no particular order

Joe Louis
Muhammad Ali
Rocky Marciano
Jack Dempsey (Overrated IMO)
George Foreman
Larry Holmes
Evander Holyfield
Lennox Lewis
Joe Frazier
Wlad Klitchko

I added klitchko buy you will easily get arguments for Tunney, Jack Johnson, John L Sullivan, Bowe, and of course, tyson.

I don't know anything about Butterbean other than the fact that he knocked out Bart Gunn at WrestleMania. I have no idea why people watched him, or if many people watched him. I have no idea if "Toughman reporter calls Butterbean the Mike Tyson of Toughman contests" would get so many angry replies from people who clearly didn't even watch the video. I also don't care.

Ariel compared Ronda to Tyson in that the people who pay for her fights don't feel ripped off when she finishes them in a matter of seconds, because that's what they're buying them for in the first place. He compared that to how people didn't feel ripped off when Tyson finished fights in the first round because that's what they were tuning in to see. He contrasted that to people feeling gypped when fights they pay for end quickly when it's other fighters. That was the beginning and the end of the comparison.

Lol yeah Funny I was watching an interview with Dana on the front page of sherdog.

A reporter was like "Ronda kinda seems like Wanderli Silva"(something like that) and Dana was like "Or like Mike Tyson"
That's the only comparison Dana wants you to hear

I hope they are at least paying Mike good money to let this women eat off his name as though she's anything remotely like Tyson
