Longtime boxing icon Roy Jones Jr. wants to fight former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva, and vice versa. In fact, it's the "Boxing vs. MMA super fight" they have been clamoring for since 2008.
And it's driving Dana White crazy.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president told FOX Sports Live that he hasn't ruled out such a fight, but at the same time, does not want to put the cart before the horse. After all, both Jones Jr. and Silva have some work to do later this month.
"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."
Start at the 3:30 mark:
They drive us all crazy!
Silva will try to reclaim his 185-pound strap against the man who took it from him, Chris Weidman, when they hook 'em up in the UFC 168 main event on Dec. 28, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. A week before that, Jones Jr. will take on Zine Eddine Benmakhlouf in Moscow.
Though I'm not sure which combination of wins and losses makes this fight happen.
