While speaking to Henry Cejudo, Tyson believed that Conor McGregor should do some fights in order to get his feet wet. The boxing legend said, “Conor, I think you should build your confidence up and go do what you do: win excitingly.”

Henry Cejudo suggested he would like to see McGregor compete against Tony Ferguson. However, Tyson did not agree with ‘Triple C.’ He felt that ‘El Cucuy’ would prove to be a tough fight for McGregor. Tyson said, “He’s a warrior, regardless if he loses, He makes exciting fights. It’s hard to beat that guy.…”

No big-time guy. Let him get three fights and build his confidence back up. Every fight the opponent goes to a higher level.” Tyson also added that even if ‘The Notorious’ wins, he is going to get hurt. He concluded by saying, “You get your experience down, three more fights, you feel good…beat the last two guys are really qualified opponents, now you go back out there. ”
