Former Two-Division Champion Conor Mcgregor Squashed Beef With Boxing Legend Mike Tyson
Former world heavyweight boxing legend Mike Tyson and one of the most controversial figures in sports went off on Conor Mcgregor’s decision to box last year. He even said he’s going to get killed boxing Floyd Mayweather Jr. Well, Mcgregor ended up losing the match via tenth round stoppage.
‘Notorious’ responded to Tyson’s comments in ice-cold fashion saying: “That’s nice Mike, but you’re looking at the new Don King here, son. Money is mine,” he said.
That's nice Mike, but you're looking at the new Don King here, son.
Money is mine.

Yesterday the MMA world was busy watching UFC 230 event, but Mcgregor was busy living up his life. On Friday night Irishman went to watch a talk show hosted by Tyson at the Helix in Dublin.
Mcgregor and Tyson put their differences aside and even tasted Tyson’s new strain of homegrown Marijuana dubbed ‘KO Kush.’ Mcgregor also offered advice to the boxing icon in a lengthy Instagram post.
“I went to see Mike Tyson last night in the Helix, Dublin, Ireland.
I love and respect Mike Tyson.
And I love the Helix. I won my first World Title here, and also my second.
It was good to meet you Mike.
You spoke some things about me in the past which I did not like and I was happy to speak to you face to face, put it to bed and have some fun. You are in good spirits and I was happy to see this!
I will always have the height of respect for you!
Some decisions you have made around your finances I do not agree with. As a fighter you must fight here. The most.
And this is a fight that never ends. It is even a fight that we pass on to our next in line. Our blood line.
Make sure you stay switched on with those around you at all times. You have good people around you now, I can tell. But stay switched on.
Your Marijuana strain that you grow on your own ranch “KO Kush” is really nice.
It was an honour to taste it and I wish you and your team all the best with this endeavor.
Just remember, if someone tries to rip you. Rip their nose off their face.
You are a fighting icon and deserve endless love and respect! And from me, you will always have it!
Don’t let anyone take anything from you.
You owe nobody nothing. It is you who is owed.
Always remember that.
I love you Mike! Iron Mike Tyson!
Here is an iconic photograph as a gift from me to you, from head photographer at @mcgregorproductions”
Former boxing icon bought 40-acres ranch in California after the state legalized the recreational marijuana earlier this year.
Tyson didn’t waste time also posted a photo of Conor on his Instagram saying ‘Thanks for coming’
Irishman and Tyson seem to have a great deal of respect for each other despite obviously having lingering beef which they buried it. He finished his post by saying ‘gifting’ Mike a photo of himself. Well, it’s not an expensive shoe or watch, but a photograph.
McGregor is currently on NSAC suspension for his part in the post-fight brawl at UFC 229. He and Khabib both are ordered to appear at a disciplinary hearing on December 10 to find out their fates.
At least Mcgregor got back on good terms with the scariest man on the planet Mike Tyson.
