MMA’s Vitor Belfort Wants To Form An AEW Tag Team… With Mike Tyson!

Watch out, Hangman Page and Kenny Omega!

Former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort was in attendance at Double or Nothing over the weekend and in quotes provided to MMA Junkie by ONE Championship, he spoke of his plans to try and form an unlikely duo with none other than Mike Tyson!

Tyson was also at the PPV – in fact, he presented the TNT Television championship to inaugural winner Cody Rhodes following his win over Lance Archer.

“I think AEW should have Mike and myself do a tag team match against two of their champions,” said Belfort.

“Tony (Khan), the owner of AEW, is a good friend of mine. That, for me, is a great idea, and I’m open to it.”

MMA crossovers into pro wrestling are nothing new, and Tyson looked enthusiastic for his confrontation with wrestling legend Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts, who manages Archer.

But would such a combination work? Well, it’d at least be chaotically entertaining!

Here’s Belfort on Instagram discussing his pitch to AEW:
