    He would win by default. Everyone else would mysteriously get "injured" and drop out.

    Tyson would have murdered Royce, EASY.

    Too quick, explosive and powerful

    He'd of battered anyone who tried to stand with him back then imo!

    But what if a wrestler simply explosively shot in with a take down at teh start of round one?

    Mike Tyson is 5’10.... certified manlet.

    Even in his prime Tyson couldn’t lay a finger on the average sherdogger

    Tyson is probably the most overrated sports combat athlete of all time. Especially with clueless MMA fans. The way Sherdog talks about him you would think he was Boxings GOAT, and not a guy who's best wins are an old Holmes coming out of retirement and LHW Spinks

    Then again Royce was no Tyson of MMA...

    If we are going by this rules maybe a 6 foot 5 plus BJJ guy that weighs similar to Tyson would have probably get the job done.

    Or maybe some 6 foot 5 plus wrestler.

    Lol I thought this thread said “Tyron” and I was like “no shit Woodley would win, what an odd thread”.

    Calling him overrated Is a little ridiculous

    Tyson's best was fleeting and he was never the same after Prison. His form and ability to keep It together also slowly began to fade when Cus D'amato died

    When he was on though, he was one of the scariest HW boxers ever. There's no question.

    No he was no goat but when he was young and pre Douglas he was one of the most ferocious,explosive fighters to walk the earth. He was a very flawed individual who destroyed his own career though.
