    Glory has apparently signed tyson to be an analyst at the upcoming glory 19 card. He is also on a commercial for the event that will play on spike tv.

    Hopefully it leads to some decent press and and more viewers because they need it

    odd choice when you refuse to sign someone like badr based on criminal history and hire the one guy who puts badr crimes inside and out of the ring to shame.

    For a company complaining about keeping a tight budget I'm not seeing the logic logic in paying a washed up convicted rapist to be an analyst. Would think that money would be useful in signing fighters without a contract ie saki,spong,Ghita,valtellini etc

    Tyson has actually calmed down a bit over the last few years and has become a pretty cool guy. His appearances on Opie & Anthony are hilarious. He's way more likable than Badr...

    I don't have a problem with this move it just seems kind of cheesy.

    i thought marketing and business were your specialist subjects?

    saki and spong are upwards of $200k per fight. 3 fight deal, thats what, a $1.2m commitment?

    judging by what i have read in his autobiography, which i have just finished (and which is excellent, recommended) i very much doubt Tyson is costing a fraction of a single Spong fight

    is valtellini out of contract? he was tweeting about title defenses the other day so thats news to me. He's also tweeting at the UFC a lot though, about Cm Punk mostly.

    Not even true in the slightest. JJ dont start pulling facts out of your ass, it kills journalistic careers.

    Tyson would be way better than King Mo, but I'd rather see him as a boxing commentator
