In this flashback video, we take a look at former UFC light heavyweight champion and UFC Hall of Fame legend Chuck Liddell being interviewed about what he thinks the outcome would be if he fought Manny Pacquiao in the boxing ring. Liddell says the size difference between someone like him and Pacquiao is just too much to handle.

However, when Liddell is asked about Mike Tyson who is much closer in size, Liddell admitted that he wouldn’t have wanted anything to do with “Iron” Mike in the boxing ring in both of their primes. On the other hand, “The Iceman” did say that in a mixed martial arts competition or a street fight, he would be much more comfortable against Tyson.

These types of scenarios and “what if” fights are what constantly drive debates with fans.

Do you think a prime Chuck Liddell could beat a prime Mike Tyson in a street fight? Let’s take this one to the comment section!
