Thread: Remember when Mike Tyson stepped into the cage?

    Default Remember when Mike Tyson stepped into the cage?

    Back in 2006 Mike Tyson stepped into the cage in Manchester. Predictably, as with anything that Tyson gets involved with, it turned into a circus.

    For a genuine slice of MMA history, go check out my blog Notes from Ringside.

    Good read, sounds like the event was a bit embarrassing.

    Here's the fight that Tyson referee'd:

    Does anyone know why Tyson stands them up at 00.38?

    I've got the whole event on DVD here. Some great fights on there, including the infamous Tan v Reid short-notice tear up.

    that was a cracking scrap - an extremely out of shape Alex Reid, who had been drinking champagne only a few hours before, against the much undersized Tan. Went back and fore, even the hostile crowd seemed to enjoy it

    Hahha, I was there, cageside, sat next to Bas Rutten. I nearly creamed, twice. Tyson let that triangle go on waaaay too long after he had tapped IMO.
    I enjoyed the Overeem fight that night, and had the displeasure of meeting Bustamante, who up until then was a hero of mine.
    The chap who came out to the American God music took some flak, but he was a slick sub artist!
    If you're going through hell, keep going!
