UFC star Conor McGregor recently had an incredible take about Mike Tyson.

The Irish-born fighter posted a photo of Tyson smoking on Instagram, but it’s the caption that is downright incredible. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

He wrote the following:

I went to see Mike Tyson last night in the Helix, Dublin, Ireland.
I love and respect Mike Tyson.
And I love the Helix. I won my first World Title here, and also my second.
It was good to meet you Mike.
You spoke some things about me in the past which I did not like and I was happy to speak to you face to face, put it to bed and have some fun. You are in good spirits and I was happy to see this!
I will always have the height of respect for you!
Some decisions you have made around your finances I do not agree with. As a fighter you must fight here. The most.
And this is a fight that never ends. It is even a fight that we pass on to our next in line. Our blood line.
Make sure you stay switched on with those around you at all times. You have good people around you now, I can tell. But stay switched on.
Your Marijuana strain that you grow on your own ranch “KO Kush” is really nice.
It was an honour to taste it and I wish you and your team all the best with this endeavor.
Just remember, if someone tries to rip you. Rip their nose off their face.
You are a fighting icon and deserve endless love and respect! And from me, you will always have it!
Don’t let anyone take anything from you.
You owe nobody nothing. It is you who is owed.
Always remember that.
I love you Mike! Iron Mike Tyson!

I absolutely love this! Love it on every count! Nothing is funnier to me than McGregor, a man who very openly lives a lavish life, talking about how he isn’t pleased with Tyson‘s financial decisions. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Greatest Ronda Rousey Photos On The Internet)

It’s absolutely hilarious. Could you imagine these two guys talking about investments together? It would be so damn funny. I would pay actual money to just sit silently in a room as McGregor lectured the legendary boxer on how to be smarter with his money.

That is the definition of content gold. It would be an epic moment to capture on film. Two men who are legendary fighters, made a ton of money and both are international figures. The fact McGregor even felt the need to comment on Tyson’s money is amazing on every level.

Somebody needs to get a transcript of this conversation when they were with each other instantly. I need that yesterday.
