Mike Tyson claims he can beat UFC superstar Conor McGregor


Those are fighting words.

Legendary boxing champ Mike Tyson has laughed off a hypothetical challenge from ex-UFC champion Conor McGregor, claiming that McGregor would pose no threat as long as they fought under boxing rules.

Tyson returns to the ring with an eight-round exhibition fight against Roy Jones Jr in California on September 12th.

Tyson went on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon to discuss the hypothetical scenario:
