Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping has claimed Mike Tyson would "absolutely flatline" Logan Paul in a contest – and claims brother Jake is "by far the better boxer".
Ex-WBA, WBC and IBF heavyweight champion Tyson sensationally returned to the ring in November, 17 years after his last fight, taking on Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition bout.
YouTube star Logan Paul is linked as Iron Mike's next opponent.
The 26-year-old fought Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition contest back in June but hasn't been near a ring since.
Yet to win a fight, Bisping believes Logan's poor record would continue if the rumoured fight against Tyson went ahead.
He said on his YouTube channel: “Logan, you know, he’s tall, you know, he’s long. He’s kind of a big guy, he’s athletic. He’s got a great physique.
"Jake Paul is by far the better boxer I would say. If I had to pick who was better then I’d say Jake Paul’s way better but Logan, you know, he has some skills.
"He can certainly punch and as I say, he’s big and he’s athletic and he’ll learn from the fight against Floyd.
“Maybe he’ll learn to manage his gas tank a little better. But there’s just no way I don’t see Mike Tyson going out there and absolutely flatlining him.”

Paul and Tyson do have history together. The 55-year-old appeared on Paul's YouTube podcast 'Impaulsive' ahead of Logan's fight against Mayweather and Tyson has confirmed he wants to do battle with either Jake or Logan.
In his one professional bout, Paul was defeated by fellow YouTuber KSI via split decision.
Younger brother Jake has fared better in the sport. The 23-year-old has won all four of his professional contests, with three coming via knockout.
