TYSON NOT DONE YET


Mike Tyson used to refuse to lose. Now he just refuses to leave. Pride Fighting Championships, what many in the Mixed Martial Arts community believe is the top MMA group in the world, has announced Tyson's signing.

Perhaps the biggest surprise at the press conference was the attendance and
announcement of former undisputed heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson.
Apparently Tyson has entered into some sort of agreement with the Japanese
promoter.

Neither he nor Pride would give any specific details as to
their partnership when Tyson was asked if he will be fighting for the promotion in the future. But just his presence alone at the press conference is sure to
ignite plenty of speculation.


It will be intersting to see which weight class he fights in and how much training he will do before he fights. MMA involes grappling, Jiu-Jitsu, boxing, Judo, Kick-Boxing and more. I don't know how many of those skills Mike can handle. If he fights as a heavyweight, he'll look back and think that Lennox Lewis was Peter Pan compared to what he will face.

Hat Tip to JKDilla.

"Hated Cards"? What are you, a Cubs fan or something? (snicker)

How on earth do you stand to root for a perennial loser?

Is it because of Wrigley Field?
That's like loving the frame around a horrible picture.

Geographic proximity?
Do you actually live in the Chicago city limits? If not, you owe them nothing.

Loyalty? Loyalty's overated.

Dude, you ought to adopt the team across town.

Wow! The comment above should go with the post a little bit up the page!

Regarding this post, is that a cross on the front of mike's shirt? I thought he was a Muslim? What's up with that?

That's a good question. I tried to zoom in on the photo but it was too blurry.

When yo say the team across town do you mean the Cards? Never. Sox? I am a Sox fan.
