UFC President Dana White will not stand in the way of a cross-sport battle between 44-year-old former champion Roy Jones Jr. (56-8, 40KOs) and former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva (33-5 in MMA, 16-1 in the UFC), 38-years-old.

A few months ago, Chris Weidman (10-0) knocked out Silva in the second round, snapping Silva's near seven year undefeated run and 16-0 streak in the UFC. Their rematch is scheduled to take place later this month. Jones also returns later this month in Moscow, Russia.

Both fighters have been calling each other out for years, and continue to call each other out with upcoming fights.

"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," White said.

Why do boxers have to go in to UFC?? they inevitably lose and it belittles the sport of boxing! Then we get all of these geeky grown-up ex-wrestling fans saying UFC is the no1 combat sport blah blah blah. roll around on the floor, cuddle cuddle cuddle, armbar! Im the best

The headline involves Roy Jones and him fighting so I'll let it slide. But yes I am not a fan of MMA personalities getting any mention on BoxingScene. They have their own forums for that.

Silva would lose in a boxing match even though Roy is a shell of his former self.

It wasn't Roy the people had in mind when they were demanding Jones-Silva.
