“I'd say the coolest was maybe, Mike Tyson, just hanging out, going out to the Tyson Ranch. Just kinda being around, went out there, everyone smoking weed. It was a cool experience just to kinda be around someone that I looked up to my whole life, watching his fights and his highlights. Just a ferocious animal. To be in his presence and just listen to him talk," Ige shared. "The ranch is pretty cool. Small little room, I guess they have a full-on boxing ring in there now, and like bags, but that wasn't in there when we went. But it was cool, they had a nice setup, all their CBD products, joints lying around everywhere, rolling papers."

Ige described Tyson as a serene individual, but the UFC featherweight could sense the storm beneath the "Iron" Mike's calm demeanor.

"He just seemed super calm and chill, but I feel like if you say the wrong thing, he kinda gets kinda nuts," he explained. "You've seen him in some interviews, don't question him. But he's cool and laid back, and he has a lot of stories, so it's cool to sit back and listen and hear what he has to tell.”
