Life coach Tony Robbins has revealed some interesting things about boxing icon Mike Tyson and MMA superstar Conor McGregor.

For decades, Tyson has always been regarded as a vicious man. Although Tyson has changed a lot these days, the reputation he has remains the same. But famous author and life coach Anthony Jay Robbins better known as “Tony Robbins” just enlightened everyone about the personality of the once considered “the baddest man in the planet.”

In a recent episode of Tyson’s “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson,” Robbins made a special appearance and described how he sees Tyson after all the ups and downs in his life.

“I just think he’s the ultimate role model for what’s possible for people,” Robbins said.

Robbins followed it up by stating that he doesn’t appreciate people trying to “hold somebody in place” after they have talked or did something with them in the past.

“ The only thing I hate is that today, so many people want to hold somebody in place, for some way they talked, or spoke or did something 20, 30, 40 years ago, whatever the number is. It’s so absurd,” Robbins pointed.

As for Tyson, Robbins believes that people make mistakes and learn from it, and for him, Tyson is the “perfect example” for it.

“We all were idiots at times and we grew. The definition of a man or a woman is not what they did or what they were. It’s who they are. And so you look at Mike, he’s the perfect example of the extreme of one side to the extreme of the other now. And I think he’s such an inspiration,” Robbins stated.

Just recently, Robbins revealed to his social media account, that his time with the controversial boxing champ was most fascinating of all his encounters in the past.

“I always say, often to their surprise, that my time with Mike Tyson was perhaps the most fascinating,” Robbins wrote.

Another combat sports icon was also credited by Robbins. Last month, the life coach also commended McGregor of the UFC on social media and unveiled the other side of the MMA superstar.

“Thank you, Conor, for taking time out of your insanely busy schedule to share part of your story, help empower them as leaders and inspire them to contribute even more to society.

Most people know what an absolute beast you are in the ring, but don’t realize the energy, generosity, and true kindness you’ve shown outside the spotlight. This last year alone, Conor not only helped to raise over $800K for a children’s hospital in Dublin — he also visits with the children and their parents to help raise spirits. And that’s not all. Conor is also working to help boost resources for those fighting the homeless crisis in Ireland and provide care and support for those families and individuals in such great need,” Robbins wrote.
