Heavyweight boxing legend and former world champion has some advice for Conor McGregor now the UFC featherweight champion is a multi-millionaire…

If anyone knows about the financial lows of the combat sports world, it’s former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson. He was the sensational killer in the ring that had it all, and squandered it on the temptations of the lavish celebrity life style.

From tigers to luxury mansions and expensive cars, ‘Iron Mike’ tasted the life of a millionaire at an early age. It proved to be quite dangerous in his case, as is often true for many young sporting legends.


Tyson’s spend list of items that did not hold value from MMA.TV:

Approximately 100 cars, including multiple Bentleys, Ferraris and Lamborghinis. He bought at least 20 from a single dealership in Las Vegas.
•Three endangered Bengal tigers, for $70,000 each. The tiger trainer was paid $125,000 a year, and was just one of up to 200 people on his payroll. One of the tigers ended up in a cage behind an Indiana tattoo parlor, until it was confiscated by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in 2010.
•A $2,000,000 bath tub as a Christmas present for his then wife Robin Givens. She reportedly received a divorce settlement of over $10 million, but said publicly that she didn’t receive a dime. The tub ended up being bought by British billionaire Derwood Hodgegrass, for a reported $1,000,000.
•That tattoo, for $200-300.
•A $3,000,000 fine for biting Holyfield’s ear.

According to MMA.TV, Mike Tyson blasted through something like $400 Million USD during his boxing career, so he is the voice of reaon where this is concerned. Talking to UFC on FOX, Mike Tyson had some sound advice for McGregor.

The UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor will face Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 197, where it’s estimated he’ll be making over $20 million USD. He could stand to become the richest MMA fighter of all time at this rate.
