Former boxing heavyweight champion Mike Tyson believes Conor McGregor wouldn’t be able to beat Khabib Nurmagomedov if they fought 10 times. reports citing foreign media that McGregor was soundly defeated by Nurmagomedov via fourth-round submission when they met at UFC 229 last year. However, there have been calls for a rematch. While it would be undeserved, especially given how Tony Ferguson is yet to receive an undisputed title shot, McGregor being a lucrative draw means it is always possible.

Tyson had praise for the Irishman being a promotional genius, but ultimately believes he would never beat the current UFC lightweight champion:

“Listen, I think Conor McGregor, he’s a promotional genius,” Tyson said in a recent interview. “Khabib beat him, right? But they still want the fight! People still want to see him fight Khabib. He’s not going to beat Khabib. He’s gonna never beat Khabib. But people are still going to pay to see him fight Khabib.

“Khabib is going to get more money beating this guy that he knows he can beat, than he would ever get in a competitive fight against a guy that’s capable of beating him. So, why not fight him 10 times? People will pay to see him fight 10 times, to see him lose 10 times. Now that’s marketing, millions, billions. He’s a genius, you can’t take that away.”
