“I think that Dana could let me tryout in taekwondo for the 2016 Olympic Games and let me fight Roy, but if he let me do that, he would need to let other fighters do their things, so he would lose control. [Dana White] is a big dad, but we have our fights all the time. He’s the Bush of MMA.”
“My biggest goal as a fighter is (fight Roy Jones Jr. in boxing). I watched him compete for many years and it’s a personal dream to fight against him. He said he also wants to fight me, and it would be a great experience.”
In an interview with the Brazilian Media, UFC 168 main event fighter, Anderson Silva touched on his ambitions as an athlete and the role UFC boss Dana White plays in keeping his roster in task.
