Mike Tyson calls Floyd Mayweather a "Very Small, Scared Man," another big change to UFC 187
- In the video above, Mike Tyson spoke to the Undisputed Champion Network about Saturday's fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. While Tyson had a hard time picking a winner, he did predict that the fight would end in a knockout. Tyson was also asked about some controversial comments Mayweather recently made about Sugar Ray Robinson and Muhammad Ali, where Mayweather stated that he was better than both legends.
"He's very delusional," Tyson said. "If he was anywhere near that realm of great Ali, he'd be able to take his kids to school by himself. He can't take his kids to school by himself and he's talking about he's great? Greatness is not guarding yourself from the people, greatness is being accepted by the people. He can't take his kids alone to school by himself. He's a little-scared man. He's a very small, scared man."
Just a reminder that we'll have full, live coverage of Mayweather vs. Pacquiao this Saturday night, so be sure to join us and score the fight with us.
- The UFC officially announced today that Khabib Nurmagomedov is out of his UFC 187 fight with Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone. Nurmagomedov injured his meniscus while training yesterday. Cerrone will now be facing John Makdessi, who just fought last Saturday at UFC 186, scoring a first round TKO victory over Shane Campbell. Cerrone was asked on UFC Tonight if Makdessi is an easier fight for him.
"I don't think anyone in the UFC is an easy fight," Cerrone said. "We're here for a reason. I was really looking forward to fighting Khabib. I've been scheduled to fight him three times now."
It was also noted on UFC Tonight that Nurmagomedov will have surgery tomorrow and will be out for four to six months.
