Evander Holyfield vs Mike Tyson, 1997 WBA Heavyweight Title V.J. Lovero/SI

Fuel TV's Ariel Helwani caught up with Mike Tyson earlier this week, and asked the high-on-life-and-perhaps-other-things former heavyweight champ a series of questions about his thoughts on the baddest man on the planet ("It's up in the air"), who would win a UFC match between Dana White and Vince McMahon (Vince), and, around the two-minute mark, how Evander Holyfield's ear tasted:


"It tasted like s---, it didn't taste well at all," said the star of Mike Tyson Mysteries, an upcoming Adult Swim cartoon in which the boxer-turned-comedian and a talking pigeon team up to solve crimes. "I discussed that with Evander ... he promotes hot sauce now, and if I had that hot sauce, the ear probably would have tasted a lot better." That's a handy culinary tip: when you dine on raw human flesh, properly season.
