Mike Tyson went on Reddit for a "Ask Me Anything" session last night, and a fan by the handle of Weezilwood asked the former boxing champ for his thoughts on Uruguayan footballer Luis Suarez's biting incident last month. 

Tyson, of course, defended the biter, saying:

“I think it is just the heat of the moment, really hot blooded and really competitive. The heat of the moment takes over us, we are really competitive and lose bad judgement [sic] in our thinking. Sometimes you can just become highly frustrated.”

For those who may be too young to remember -- Tyson was temporary banned from boxing after biting off a piece of EvanderHolyfield's ear in a 1997 boxing match.
