Both boxers went head-to-head in an exhibition match, despite being in their 50s, and UFC chief White was impressed by Tyson.
He said: “Listen man, you guys have been asking me questions leading up to this thing, and I didn’t want to say anything and he is a good friend of mine.
“I was nervous; he is 54 years old, time is undefeated and time takes us all down.
“And one of the things I was worried about for Mike was that he has this incredible aura still. And 54 years old… fighting is a young man’s game.

“All that being said, he looked f***ing awesome tonight, I was blown away by how good he looked.
“And I was worried about Roy; Roy is 51 years old but Roy has been way more active than Tyson has been. But Roy actually got more tired than Mike tonight which was shocking.
“I am happy for him and I hope they both made a zillion dollars, and it exceeded my expectations.”
Not only was White massively impressed by Tyson, but he is adamant ‘Iron Mike’ should have been declared the winner of the fight.
He added: “Tyson won the fight.”
