Mike Tyson and Prince Jackson discuss MMA

He’s the god.” The UFC Heavyweight champion of the world is a favorite fighter of many around the world and is regarded as one of the greatest fighters of all time.

Meanwhile, Jackson acknowledged the greatness of another legend, Khabib Nurmagomedov. However, he was candid in expressing that the former UFC Lightweight champion is not the most exciting fighter out there given his style of fighting. He stated, “Khabib was amazing but he was all groundwork a lot. He would dominate strength-wise, grappling. He was just above and beyond.”

Prince’s foray into the combat realm

Jackson is not just a fight fan but has also participated in combat sports himself. In the same interview, he reveals getting into karate and having not much success in it. He stated, “When I was younger, after my dad died, my grandma wanted us to do karate.

So we did that for a little while. Then I kind of just wanted something more aggressive, so I went into mixed martial arts. I got my a*s beat for like two days straight”
