Mike Tyson could have an opponent beat up to 24 hours before his encounter – all he had to do was stare at him at the considerations.
Former undisputed heavyweight champion ‘Iron Mike’ was no stranger to controversy before a fight on the scales, and his aura of intimidation could scare even the most battle-hardened man.
So it was no surprise that the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history got as dizzy as a schoolboy when he saw two UFC fighters nearly lose control.
In 2013, Promotion President Dana White invited Tyson to be a special guest for UFC 160 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for the heavyweight main event between Cain Velazquez and Antonio ‘Big Foot’ Silva.
At the bottom of the map was the slight clash between Abel Trujillo and future world champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Tensions increased between the Russian and his American opponent when ‘The Eagle’ missed 2.5 pounds and was forced to lose 20 percent of its battle money – half of which went to Trujillo.
As the two men stared at each other, Khabib pushed the smaller man away and a brief argument broke out, much to Tyson’s delight.
Nevada officials were upset by the couple, but White had absolutely no problems and understood both men’s frustrations.
“The nicest people in the world are the meanest, nastiest guys you’ve ever seen on weighing day,” White told MMAjunkie.com after UFC 160.
“That’s why I’m always right there. As he pushed it, I said, “Jesus Christ, I’m getting old. I can’t even stop a push now. ‘… But that’s why we’re here.
“That’s what happens. We’re here to make sure the fight doesn’t happen before the fight. ”
“We can nudge around here a bit,” added White. “These guys are unhappy. You are evil. He didn’t do any weight.
“He knows he’s upset about it. He’s already losing his wallet to this guy. These are all things to think about. You will not be punished for such a thing. You’d have to put your hands on someone to get a fine, throw pre-fight punches and things like that. ”
Nurmagomedov had the chance to cast out some demons in battle, with Trujillo setting a record 21 times before taking the unanimous decision victory.

The excitement that was so evident on Tyson’s face is perhaps understandable in retrospect when the announcement is made in May of a comeback at the age of 53.
After going vegan and undergoing stem cell therapy, the New Yorker turned the clock back and looks better than ever.
Despite reports of a $ 18 million Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship offer, Tyson is apparently only interested in fighting in a boxing ring again.
