 I know, I know, this was really bigger news last week, when Iron Mike was initially arrested for DUI and coke possession. But I didn’t get a chance to comment on it last week, and it wasn’t until this week that we became aware he could be facing up to 71/2 years in jail.

This news has brought to light the fact that finally, after remaining a vitally important sports figure for about 15 years after his prime ended, the world has stopped caring about Mike Tyson. Can you imagine news of Tyson being arrested for coke possession eliciting so little response even as recently as two years ago? Back in ’99, when he kneed a middle-aged man in the groin following a fender bender, it caused a sensation—in large part because Tyson was still a significant heavyweight fighter at the time. Now he’s fighting exhibition bouts against half-blind sparring partners, and nobody’s watching. If he goes back to jail now, and it seems likely he will, you won’t see many boxing writers at the trial or the sentencing. It’ll just be another sad chapter in a predictably sad story—never mind that prison may actually be something of a refuge for a depressed, destitute man with drug problems.

It's not even debatable IMO.  Horrible verdict.  And I think he blew closer to $300 million.   Undecided

Boxing is done. Mma will ensure its failure, imo.

Heresy!

Boxing at its best is an art-form, a science even.

MMA is steroid abusers rolling around in their underwear. One step up from "pro" bodybuilding in the homoerotic stakes.

You do know the UFC has pretty strict testing policies due to the NSAC and they catch fighters all the time. However, Pride doesn't test because they aren't illegal in Japan.

Anywho, boxing will always be around. MMA has 100+ years of catching up to do it but it's definetely growing.

Wind your neck in, Geek!

If you go back to my original post, I think you'll find I'm joining the armed forces at the end of my degree.

I'll be looking dashing in my uniform liberating the middle east, while you will be sat behind your computer ogling Ronnie Coleman's shredded glutes.

It's after that I will proceed to earn tons of cash off the misery of others.

ROFL wtf? Calm down mate, I was jesting! Lips sealed

If you was born in 1980, what's taken you so long to get to Uni?

I was taking the piss myself. Cheesy

The reason for the big gap between A levels and uni was a fondness for all night raves in my late teens. Left me as a bit of a layabout until about three years ago.

"At it's best" an "art-form" doesn't matter if that kind of quality's too few and far between to matter much. Mma's more interesting week to week.

You're all talking to a future MMA champion. You should feel honored that I even take the time out of my day to laugh in the faces of you guys. Hope this helps.  Wink

He's in for a ruff time in Arizona.  The sheriff is well known for being tuff on druggies.  Tents, no workout or even bb games.  He even makes them wear pink undies. 

Now Tyson's thing is coke.  Weed is 1 thing, but coke will get him big time.  Check out Aaron Pryor.  Coke ruined him and he's a lighter version of Tyson.   Hope he was just a dabbler, not full blown.  He's got enough problems.  This is where He's going.
