McGregor Responds to Tyson Calling Him a "Dumb Ass": I'm the New Don King

Trending Now

Mike Tyson had some choice words for Conor McGregor during an appearance on Barstool Sports’ podcast Pardon My Take. When asked what he thought of the upcoming fight between Mayweather and McGregor, Tyson said, “[McGregor] put his dumb ass in a position where he’s gonna get knocked out because this guy’s been doing this all his life since he was a baby. [McGregor] can’t kick and grab and stuff so he won’t stand much of a chance.”

Upon seeing a Complex headline of him being a called a “dumb ass” by Tyson, McGregor swiftly fired back via Twitter saying, “That’s nice Mike, but you’re looking at the new Don King here, son. Money is mine.” McGregor’s reference to Don King is a cheap shot at Mike Tyson, who has a storied past business relationship with King that went sour. Tyson ended up firing King from his team and suing him for $100 million. King and Tyson ended up settling out of court for $14 million.
