Dana White: ‘With UFC 168 Win, Anderson Silva vs. Roy Jones Jr. Boxing Match Will Happen’

“These two drive me crazy. They drive me crazy. First of all, Roy Jones Jr. is a longtime friend of mine. When I was a 19-year-old kid in the boxing business, Roy Jones was very good to me. So I’m in this position where I feel like Roy wants to fight him, he wants to fight Roy – I feel like I’m in this position to try to make both of these guys happy. But it drives me crazy. I would love Roy Jones Jr. to focus on his next opponent and Anderson to focus on his. We’ll talk about all this stuff. I know Roy’s coming to the fight – we’ll see what happens.”

In a recent interview with Fox Sports, UFC president Dana White said that if Anderson Silva can win the rematch against Chris Weidman later this year (UFC 168) then Silva can get his dream fight against boxing legend, Roy Jones Jr.

Jones is already in camp for a tune-up fight should the offer to fight Anderson come down the pipeline.
