Boxing legend Mike Tyson thinks he would have succeeded in mixed martial arts provided there was one rule change.

"I could of done all that stuff," the 54-year-old said in a video by TMZ Sports. "But once someone stepped on my foot, I would of tapped out. My feet are my weak spot. You step on my feet, I'm gonna tap out."
