VIDEO: Mike Tyson has some biblical advice for Ronda Rousey

Plain talking from Iron Mike.

Mike Tyson knows what it is like to be Ronda Rousey right now.


The former heavyweight boxing champion of the world was just as stunned as the rest of the world, in 1991, when his reign was ended by James Buster Douglas.

The most recent example as a KO that created global shockwaves was Rousey's loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193. The challenger delivered a punishing head kick that floored Rousey and cost her the bantamweight belt.


In an interview with Conan O'Brien, last night, Tyson was philosophical and biblical with his take on Rowdy.


Tyson said, "You have to understand, we're in the hurt business. We're in the business where you get hurt.

"She has to be seen. She's pictured coming out of the house. That's okay. Show your face; you're human.

"She has to understand, she's a Goliath. David was a great king, he did great things - he built as civilisation, a CIVILISATION - but he's more famous for beating Goliath.

"He never came out of Goliath's shadow, like this young lady Miss Holm. She's never going to be out of Ronda's shadow."
