Anderson Silva and Roy Jones Jr. Still Want to Fight

It has to be difficult to be Anderson Silva, like waking up every day and just being him. We all know that UFC 168 is rapidly-approaching, where fans will be treated to Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman II, but that doesn’t seem to be all that is on Anderson Silva’s mind. Oh no. Remember the talks of him wanting to fight Roy Jones, Jr.? Well, that hasn’t stopped yet.

In fact, both him and Roy Jones still talk about it to Dana White and Dana feels like he has to make it happen now. Anderson Silva vs. Roy Jones, Jr. would be such an odd spectacle, but after all of that talk, it’d be nice for it to actually happen. [source]

“These two drive me crazy. They drive me crazy,” White said. “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.”
