Most people would relish the opportunity to share the same space as LeBron James. That star-struck moment would quickly fade if one was stuck behind the 6'8" NBA superstar in a stadium, though.

Mike Tyson faced this dilemma at the Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight Aug. 26. While he had a ringside seat to the Las Vegas, Nevada, spectacle, he was stuck behind the Cleveland Cavaliers icon.

Appearing on the The Whoolywood Shuffle, the former boxer said he watched on the JumboTron.

"He's around 10 foot tall," Tyson said, "so when he stood up, I looked up at the fight on the ceiling. They had the little tubes on the ceiling, so I was watching it on the ceiling."

Despite shelling out a massive amount for an occasionally obstructed view, Tyson said "Everyone got their money's worth" in a match between a now 50-0 boxer and an MMA fighter that cost $89.95 to watch in standard definition on pay-per-view.

When DJ Whoo Kid asked about pulling a reverse McGregor and trying MMA, Tyson claimed he's "not the same person" as before.

Tyson, who famously bit off part of Evander Holyfield's ear during a bout, said you "have to look at everybody as meat" to succeed as a fighter.
