Anderson Silva was the man poised to face off in a boxing match with Roy Jones Jr. He even had UFC President Dana White’s blessing.
However, his loss to Chris Weidman and broken leg have put those ambitions on hiatus.
In the wake of UFC 168, boxing great Roy Jones Jr, who was sitting cage side last Saturday, told the media that since Silva is out, he would like to face Nick Diaz.
Hearing the news himself, retired UFC welterweight Chris Lytle (pictured) took to twitter to throw his name in the hat.
Itching to fight again. I have the perfect fight in mind. @arielhelwani @danawhite @RealRoyJonesJr @ufc
