I have the worst feet in the world, reveals Mike Tyson

Former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has revealed the strange reason why he feels he could never have made the switch to the world of MMA.

“I don’t know what I would do in the UFC, because I watched the UFC a couple of times, and I watched these guys step on people’s feet,” Tyson said in an interview with GQ Sports.

“And I have the worst feet in the world, and if somebody stepped on my feet I would totally tap out and just give up. It would be a no-brainer,” he revealed.

While Iron Mike’s boxing skills would unquestionably have made him a force to be reckoned with in the cage, there’s one thing that he thinks means he would never have fared well in MMA – and it’s not necessarily a lack of training in the other components of mixed martial arts.

 

Tyson is friends with UFC chief Dana White, and there has been recent talk that he could help former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans with a return to MMA, particularly through the adoption of the ‘peek a boo’ style Tyson was famous for.
