    Jimmies will be rustled, but all day long they're airing an infographic comparing Rousey's stats against Tyson's across their first 12 opponents. To highlight that Rousey is MORE DOMINANT than young Tyson-the most terrifying and dominant figure in sports history.

    Rousey crushes cans faster than prime Tyson!!!!! Unbelievable.

    She is more dominant but its against librarian chicks and soccer moms vs the heavyweight men who outsized Tyson each time he stepped in the ring so the comparison is unnecessary and cringe inducing.

    You need to check who Tyson fought in his first 12 fights. Tyson fought nothing but cans for his first 25-30 opponents. He crushed more cans than a recycling center, and not only at the beginning of his career. But when he was doing it, he was a prodigy, an amazing phenom. Ronds destroys most of the top 10 and the shertards besmurch her and her opponents.

    It's flat out insulting to compare Rousey to Mike Tyson, also Rousey will probably only fight 4 or 5 more times in her career would be my guess.

    See my previous post and add to it that many fighters (including ranked boxers) have regular jobs. Tyson's opponents included. Ray Leonard once defended his Title against a top ten ranked guy who was still working as a garbage man. There was a highly ranked bantamweight (Albert Davilla) who fought for the Title several times (including on network tv in prime time) in the 70's & 80's but drove a beer truck. He continued to drive a beer truck even when he finally won the Title & defended it.

    Big fish in small pond. More of an aquarium, really. But winning's winning, I guess. Except for openly ducking the one viable opponent who would have a good shot at beating her, over a 5lb difference.

    Shocking. Belittling an Olympian with a clean record and defending a man convicted of sexual assault.

    Sexist.

    Mike Tyson is a sell-out, everyone knows that...

    Let him piss on the grave of his younger self if he wants a bit of luxury before it's too late.
