White: Mike Tyson is the 'Justin Bieber' for grown men


Mike Tyson was a big part of the UFC 160 fight weekend, whether it was on stage at the weigh-ins, inside the octagon, being mentioned in interviews, or even deciding fight night bonuses. Several fighters talked about Tyson in their post-fight interviews with Joe Rogan. According to UFC President Dana White, Tyson brings out a child like fandom from even grown men and professional fighters;

"What are we going to do, say 'no' to Mike Tyson? I wasn't about to argue with him…. He had fun this weekend. He's the Justin Bieber for grown men who like fighting -- he makes everybody go crazy. He's fun to watch fights with, he's fun to hang around with. I like having him around."

Justin Bieber?  Really?  You couldn't use another analogy other than a closet gay hiding behind pretty girls and hip hop clothing, who will be found lurking in freeway men's restrooms like George Michael in 10 years?

A few years ago I ran into Tyson outside of a circle k in Tempe AZ at around 10 and he was being swarmed by people wanting a pic and autograph. He was so nice and made sure everyone got a pic then hopped in his H2 with the biggest bodyguard I have ever seen.
