VIDEO: Mike Tyson added as a playable character in the new UFC video game

How's his guard?


Ever wonder how well ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson would have fared in the octagon?

The youngest ever heavyweight champion in boxing history would have caused nightmares for the UFC’s big boys on the feet with his unmatched punching power and terrifying torque.

And thanks to the clever folk over at EA Sports, you can now match Tyson up with the likes of Fabricio Werdum and Cain Velasquez as he’s been unveiled as a playable character in the upcoming UFC 2 Deluxe Edition video game.

There are two versions of Tyson that you can play as – either ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson which would be Tyson from the 1990s in his black shorts and terrifying walkout or ‘Legacy’ Mike Tyson which comes complete with the iconic face tattoo.

To unlock Tyson, you need to pre-order the game which officially goes on sale on March 15 and as part of the same deal you get both Bas Rutten and Kazushi Sakuraba too.
