Conor McGregor Reacts To Mike Tyson Claiming He Could "Kick His A**"
'Iron Mike' appeared on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon earlier this week and was quizzed on which fighting mega stars he could beat.
When asked about 'Notorious', Tyson said he would "kick his a** anyway" despite the Irishman's maverick nature.
McGregor has now shared the comments to his Instagram page and it looks like he agrees with the former world champion, having liked the post too.
Tyson clarified that he would easily dispatch the 31-year-old if their fight took place in a boxing ring rather than the octagon.
McGregor dabbled in boxing back in 2017 when he took on Floyd Mayweather in a losing effort.
Tyson was complimentary of the former 'Champ-champ's' performance in the fight with minimum experience.
"He never really had a boxing match in his life, right. He went 10 rounds with the greatest fighter in the last 100 years of boxing," he explained on Hotboxin'.
"He went 10 rounds, scored punches on the greatest boxer in the last 100 years.

"Did he do something? Did he accomplish something? People should look who he had the fight against and look what he did when he fought against him."
Meanwhile, 'The Baddest Man on the Planet' is preparing for his comeback fight on September 12 against Roy Jones Jr.
It will take place on pay-per-view streaming service Triller and could cost fans up to $49.
Tyson and Jones Jr have agreed to an eight-round clash and the bout can only be determined by a knockout with no judges scoring the contest.
Jones Jr suggested he could make as much as $10 million (£7.8 million) if PPV sales are strong.
He also conceded that he is the 'David' in their David and Goliath contest, but still backed himself to put in a strong showing.
"His legs are huge and his thighs are huge. His arms are huge and his neck is huge!" Jones Jr told World Boxing News.
"It's very risky, yes. But God's in control of all. [Previously] I was beating everybody in every weight class I was in, so what you gonna do?
"It's like David and Goliath. He's a giant monster, we know. I'm little David and all I've got is God on my side, which is all I'm gonna need."
Do you think Mike Tyson would follow up on his promise if he fought Conor McGregor?
