Roy Jones, who enjoyed a long run as the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world in the 1990s, has issued a challenge to the best mixed martial artist in the world, Anderson Silva. 

So, how about it, Dana? Should fans of both disciplines get geared up for the crossover clash?

“You won’t see a Silva versus Jones fight while Silva is under contract with me,” White said Tuesday. “I don’t want to say anything bad about Roy Jones, I like Roy Jones and was a fan of his, but he mattered like fifteen years ago. He’s not anywhere near the best boxer in the world. He must’ve spent all his money.”

You have to admit…this would be the biggest MMA fight in the history of the sport. So would a Silva knee end it…or a .03 second left hook from Jones that Silva never saw coming?
