Mike Tyson and Ronda RouseyIf anything, former boxing world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has done everything wrong or had nearly everything go wrong that an athlete of his caliber could have go wrong in life.

UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey hasn’t yet achieved the level that Tyson reached by any means, but she has rocketed into the spotlight.

So what is Tyson’s advice for her, one champion to another?

“Stick with your mom and a good lawyer.”

Mike Tyson and Ronda Rousey were recently on Good Morning LA for a combined interview. Check out the video below…

    I wish Mike had KO’d Rousey and strutted around with her strap around his waist.

      Lol I guess that what be the same as that transgendered dude knocking out women in an mma tourny and acting like its wrong for anyone to see the problem with that.

        I was legit beginning to feel like I’m the only mma fan in the world who felt like that person has an unfair advantage due to being genetically male fighting opponents who are genetically female. I couldn’t care less about how people identify their own sexuality. That’s a different topic for a different day. My concerns have nothing to do with that. However, there are very valid reasons for men and women not competing against each other in a sport like mma.

    glasses covered her pretty face 🙁


    Rousey ought to marry Mike Tyson.

  • Darin

  • Couldn’t get better advice, stick with your mom and a good Lawyer. Mike Knows. Mike has turned his life around and very happy for him. Mike Tyson was the most feared HW fighter of all times.

  • Levi F

    Mike Tyson has been at the top and the bottom in both life and profession. The manic and crazy days of Tyson totally turned off this boxing fan. Today I am so glad to see Mike working, making money and most importantly passing on his wise advice to young highly successful rich athletes before they get eaten and swallowed up by the piranhas in the Hollywood industry.

    “Stick with your Mom and a good lawyer.”- Iron Mike Tyson

    Dana White should hire Tyson as a consultant for the UFC, to be young fighter development and mentorship. If anybody knows about poor choices , a bad attitude, self defeatist ways, and money mismanagement it is Iron Mike.

    • DamianCross

      I liked how Tyson came off as one who’s been watching MMA. I know he’s been to UFC events before and I’m pretty sure there’s mutual respect between he and Zuffa, so at least there’s that.


    Yea Mike Tyson giving advice would be like giving Visine to a peeping Tom.

    • Lesnarenko

      come on man, the Mike Tyson jokes are so 2000’s. He has been showing maturity as of late.
