Because the Gracies showed very little respect for Joe Louis's legacy, and imply that he was too cowardly to face Helio--the "best fighter in the world"--whose name was so obscure that few had even heard of him.

The Gracies occasionally have a tendency of being disrespectful to fighters who are not Gracie-trained, and boxers in particular. It is a tendency that some MMA fans seem to have inherited with respect to boxers.

Mike Tyson claimed to be the baddest man on the planet. He shouldnt be surprised then if someone challenges him to a fight.

I can see being upset over Helio challenging Joe Louis, as he was a class act. But Tyson has no respect for anyone, Tyson is a guy that beats up women, threatens reporters. I dont feel too sorry for Tyson, having a MMArtist wanting to fight him .

Feel bad for Tyson?? Feel very lucky that this fight never came off if your an MMA fan. Tyson would have put an end to the craze before it began by turning the sports first champion into a vegetable. Royce would have been demolished inside 20 seconds Imagine a Prime, unmedicated Tyson throwing hooks and uppercuts without gloves on. A wrestler might be able to take him down while avoiding being decapitated.....Royce couldn't have

He should of took the fight then. Rather then avoid Royce's challenge.

This was in 1996.
Bur Royce got down far bigger men than Tyson.

I say Royce submits Mike with 1 minute.

I could envisage Mike getting disqualified through dirty tactics, especially in 1996 when he seemed at his most angry and deranged.

also grace had troubletaking down a few people. in UFC 4(i believe) he had a vey hard time taking down some karate practicioner. tyson is much stronger than him and wouldnt have been taken down very easy.
