Mike Tyson was infamous for striking fear in the hearts of his opponents, but when it came to predicting the main event winner at UFC 141, Tyson is taking the wrestler over the striker.

In a snippet from a yet-to-be-released exclusive interview with Bleacher Report, "Iron Mike" was torn on who will emerge victorious: he talked about Lesnar being inexperienced but also being very powerful and athletic. He pointed out that Overeem has been at this for along time, and even with several losses on his record, they all add up to an advantage in experience for the Dutchman.

In the end, Tyson went "pro-American" and chose Lesnar to be the 'bigger man' when all is said and done. So which behemoth do you think will have their hand raised when the dust has settled?
