MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Video: Tea Time With Mike Tyson


(Pinky up, Iron Mike.)

I know, I know, this isn’t MMA-related, but there’s something so surreal about seeing a man who was once the most dangerous fighter in the world sipping chamomile and honey at a tea party, that I figured you guys would let it slide just this once.

Mike Tyson sat down with The Daily Line’s Reese Waters for a one-on-one interview that spanned a variety of topics from his torrid relationship with cannolis to selling duplicate wedding gifts at pawn shops. 


Arguably the best part of the vid was the former champ asking people situated off camera if Waters is a well-known TV personality and the genuine shock when he is told that the Versus network reporter is indeed a pseudo-celebrity.

"Reese is on television and people know who he is? Get the fuck out of here. You know who he is? This is serious. You’re not putting me up to a joke? People know who he is? I don’t know nobody I don’t watch television."

When is Mark Burnett or SPIKE TV going to jump on a Tyson reality show?

Tyson would beat out Half Pint Brawlers all day.

They didn't show the part where Mike stirs his tea with uchiyama's ear.

Reese Witherspoon is the bomb! I can't believe Tyson has never heard of her!

I know usually with tea you have crumpets but can anyone tell me if they also served the children of Lennox Lewis

I would watch an entire series of unscripted Mike Tyson eating Skittles and talking about the state of the world today. Ratings Gold I tell you.

What's up with the end credit screen? I waited 25 seconds expecting a blooper at the end and got nothing. Give me Thor's hammer or something.

Tyson has always been my favorite fighter, and ya, as nooger said if you haven't seen the documentary its a must see. I've always said my dream fight would be if you could take Tyson in his prime, give him 2 years of MMA training and unleash him on anybody. Dude was on a whole other level, at 10 he'd been through shit very few adults could relate to.

For anyone who hasn't seen "Tyson" the documentary, please check it out, you can catch it somewhere on megavideo online easily. It's really really great stuff, gives you a whole different perspective on this guy.

+100000000000 for the suggestion of a Tyson reality show, I don't even care what the context of the show is, a Tyson hosted/acted/performed reality show would blow everyone's mind.

How dare that tattoo faced bastard besmirch the name of the honorable and delicious cannoli. I say good day sir!

All of a sudden Mike breaks out in song:

"I'm a little teapot short and thtout... here isth my handle, here isth my spout."

As a tea time enthusiast myself, I can tell you that he is not distinguished enough to sit and sip tea with the upper crust. Anybody who is anyone in the tea and biscuit community can tell you that faces tattoo's go on the RIGHT side of the face. I bet he didnt even use the right spoon to stir his tea with.

I saw the Tyson Documentary. It was mos def well done, although could we ignore all the horrific sh* Tyson has done in the past? Well I guess we should all forgive eventually. I mean we've all made mistakes but in theory if Tyson is guilty for half the things he's done he should be locked up.

PS: Tyson has slimmed down since that movie he must have lost over a hundred pounds

If anyone hasn't watched the Tyson documentary that came out a little while back, it is really a must watch. This dude had a tough and tragic life.

Seems to be in a relatively good place now though.

Cheers, Iron Mike.

I got the same feeling here that I did when I first saw Superman drawn with gray in his temples.
