If he could, that would shake some **** up. How would Tyson vs. Silva be?

Tyson is never going to fight in MMA, never.

Don't forget how unlikely it was for him to go to k1 or for king to get involved. Never say never young man. Unlikely yes, impossibe no.

205 would be hard...I think it would be TOO lean...but if Jackson and Tito can do it...maybe

Tyson probably walks around at 240, I think 205 would be a strech. Also we have a better chance of seeing Tank Abbott triangle choke Bob Sapp than Tyson fight in MMA.....

why do you all think MMMA is a no go for tyson?

Tyson fights for money. This Sapp calling him out thing was probably a stunt. Tyson was probably already going to fight K-1 anyway. I could see if this sells big Zuffa going after Tyson or another big name boxer like Hollyfield or Lewis and putting him in the cage with Silvia or Rizzo or maybe even Mir but they better come with a bucket of money.

His contract with K-1 has a clause that clearly states that he is gonna be fighting under "boxing" rules. He can't be forced to fight under K-1 rules.
In other words, He is going to be in "special rules(boxing only)" matches...Sideshow Mike.

From www.insidefighting.com :

Details on Tyson's K-1 Contract
According to Scott Coker, President and CEO of K-1 USA, Tyson's contract with K-1 included the following: a $200,000 signing bonus and guarantees of nearly $4,000,000 for an up coming publicity tour and commercial endorsements in Japan. Nothing in the contract forces Tyson to fight a K-1 match, but advanced stages of negotiation continue to make the fight with Bob Sapp happen in December. Tyson, of course, insists on "Marquess of Queensberry" rules, which is straight boxing. "I don't really feel like getting kicked in the head," said Tyson. Stay tuned for more details.

tyson can hit 205 he used to weigh in at 215 before he went to prison so i think it's possible

One thing is to raise your leg for a picture wearing a karate, another is to actually put your hip into it and throwing an actual roundhouse. At 350 lbs, there is no way in f'n hell that Bobo is gonna kick Tyson anywhere near his head, maybe one of his weak leg kicks, though.
