    I'd imagine Kimo was pretty close in power to Tyson at the time if not stronger and he couldn't power out the choke when Royce caught him (granted Royce yanking on the ponytail helped a bit)

    I agree with the swarming. Tyson was fast and had a decapitating upper cut. Royce was good at taking a beating but a Tyson beating is like no other. looking at the kimo fight...kimo was laying a beating to him and the only reason Royce won was the ponytail pull to hold him in the armbar.

    Gi helps against people with no ground game.

    I would put my money on Tyson. He would've had 50 pounds on him.

    I don't know I am waivering on this. Gracie could clinch get a quick trip and end up on top. Then RNC when Tyson rolled.

    You give Tyson a training camp with wrestling and bjj defense and he would have smoked him IMO.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akebono_Taro to hose who say Tyson would just out power anything Royce had.
    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.
