- Annoying Mike Tyson is as foolish as head-butting a bee hive, according to UFC commentator Joe Rogan.
- Tyson recently punched a reportedly drunk passenger during a flight from California to Florida.
- UFC boss Dana White posted a video of how you can stay alive when on a flight with Tyson.
The former world heavyweight boxing champion made news earlier this month because of the way he reacted to an allegedly intoxicated passenger who couldn't seem to leave him alone during a flight from California to Florida.
Video footage appeared to show Tyson hitting the passenger, reportedly after taking a selfie with the person. TMZ Sports was the first to report the footage and said a source close to Tyson claimed the passenger was badgering the former fighter.
Tyson apparently took a selfie with the man and even showed patience while the passenger kept talking to him from the seat behind, and gestured close to his head.
Rogan said recently that badgering Tyson was never going to be a clever thing to do.
"It's real simple: That dude was a douchebag," Rogan said on his "The Joe Rogan Experience" podcast. "He was annoying one of the baddest mother-fuckers that's ever walked the face of the Earth."
Rogan later added: "It's so dumb! It's not even kicking a beehive. It's like smashing — it's head-butting a beehive.
"If you find yourself where Mike Tyson's reaching over the back of an airline seat and punching you in the face, I think you probably earned it," said Rogan.
"People get crazy. They think just because he's Mike Tyson, he's famous, he can't just punch you. You're annoying him! He's gonna just fucking hit you like a normal person would."
'Hey dummies … this is how you stay alive' on a plane with Mike Tyson
Rogan wasn't the only member of the MMA community to comment on the incident, as UFC boss Dana White, who has spoken frequently to Tyson, posted a message on Twitter.
"Hey dummies," said White. "For future reference, this is how you stay alive when bumping into Mike Tyson on an airplane."
He then included a funny clip that shows Tyson taking White's seat on a plane. The clip has, as of Wednesday, been viewed more than 4 million times.
