Mike Tyson knows what it’s like to fall from the top of the mountain following a loss. His shocking defeat at the hands of Buster Douglas in Tokyo was one of the moments that showed the former heavyweight champion was not invincible. And despite the media’s rabid focus on his comeback and the legal troubles Tyson would face, it was a moment that was hard to bounce back from.

That’s what makes his advice to Ronda Rousey on Conan just a bit more important. He knows what it is like to lose a high profile event at the peak of your career. And he also knows the pitfalls that come with it:

“She has to understand, we’re in the hurt business. I don’t care if you’re the king of the hurt business, we’re in the business where we get hurt. And um, she’s just gotta be seen, come out of the house. I see she’s been around, show your face. You’re human. She’s just unfortunate that she’s a goliath.

David is a great king, he’s done great things…He built the civilization! But he’s more famous for beating goliath.”
