UFC 162: Anderson Silva Talks Chris Weidman, New Deal and More

MMA Online video Rating: 4 / five

Silva and Dana White can be boxing success

Perhaps the greatest fighter in the history of Mixed Martial Arts and definitely the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC has announced that he wishes to return to action as soon as his injury is healed. However, there is one tiny catch in that announcement – Anderson Silva will not make his return to Mixed Martial Arts but admitted that he wants to fight legendary boxer Roy Jones Jr. inside the squared circle and considering the movement of the UFC in recent months, it might not be a pipe dream as well.

Long before Dana White, the current UFC president was running the biggest combat sports organization in the world and handling the millions of dollars the company was raking in, he was an avid boxing fan and had designs to forge a career inside the ring for him.

Both Anderson Silva and Dana White grew up in tough neighborhoods in their home towns and perhaps that upbringing has brought them closer even more and maybe that is one major reason why the Brazilian has chosen the scientific sport of boxing as his vehicle for return following his horrendous injury against Chris Weidman in a UFC Middleweight Championship match in December.

He stated that boxing has been a target for him and as he cannot fight in Mixed Martial Arts after recovering from injury, boxing will interest him as an option. He also added that Roy Jones Jr. has been an idol while growing up and facing him would be an honor.

And with White backing him all the way, saying that it is always interesting with Anderson Silva around, things could move a lot quicker than many people expect.

And if they do enter boxing, the sport will definitely be richer for it, gaining two of the brightest minds in sports.
