Mike Tyson says he'd beat McGregor in fight

Mike Tyson likes his chances against UFC star Conor McGregor.

The former undisputed heavyweight champion claimed he would beat McGregor when asked about a hypothetical match between the two on Monday's episode of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon."

"Yeah, but I'm gonna kick his ass anyway," Tyson said in response to Fallon calling McGregor "nuts," adding that they would "play with boxing rules."

The 54-year-old Tyson is set to return to the ring in September to face Roy Jones Jr. in an eight-round exhibition match. McGregor announced his retirement from mixed martial arts in June, though UFC president Dana White expects him to return in 2021.
