DANIEL CORMIER has claimed he would beat boxing icon Mike Tyson in a street fight – but only with the help of his wrestling skills and a GLASS BOTTLE.
The ex-MMA star, 43, retired from the Octagon in 2020 and is a two-weight UFC champion.
Before heading into mixed-martial arts, Cormier was a successful competitive wrestler.
He was a six-time winner for Team USA, a world bronze medalist and a two-time Pan American games champion.
DC revealed on a recent episode of ESPN's DC & RC that he would have to fight dirty to beat Iron Mike.
Cormier was asked if he would win in a street battle with Baddest Man on the Planet.

Cormier said: "In a street fight, I'm wrestling everybody. I'd wrestle him [Mike Tyson].
"In a street fight you grab bottles, you grab everything. I love Mike. Mike is my boy.
"I'd never raise a finger to him really."
