Did Kanye West Kick Mike Tyson Out Of His Seat At UFC 202? Skip Bayless Says Yes

Saturday’s UFC 202 showdown between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz was one for the ages, but we might be lucky another epic fight didn’t break out outside the Octagon.

The highly anticipated rematch between the two rivals brought droves of celebrities to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Yet it appears one of those celebrities, rapper Kanye West, had a bit of an issue upon arrival: He wanted to sit in the first row, but none other than famous boxer Mike Tyson impeded his path.

Most rational humans would take another seat rather than confront one of the scariest men on the planet, but according to new FOX Sports talking head Skip Bayless, Kanye opted for the latter.

If true, it’s a pretty bold move by Kanye. But the man wanted a front-row seat, and his initiative paid off, as McGregor and Diaz slugged it out for five thrilling rounds before “The Notorious” emerged with a razor-thin victory.
