Roy Jones Jr. accepts Anderson Silva's challenge
It was years ago when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight titleholder Anderson Silva first expressed interest in crossing over to the boxing ring to challenge former world champion Roy Jones Jr. "The Spider" has a couple of professional boxing fights under his belt and despite his one-of-a-kind accomplishments in mixed martial arts (MMA), jumping over to face one of the best boxers ever was viewed as a pipedream. Silva's interest in fighting Jones Jr. --at least in the public eye-- died down over the next few years. That is until the Brazilian rehashed the subject in a recent interview with the New York Post. ""I think everyone's got something they're focused on and that's my own desire, something I'd like to do," said Silva. "Maybe one day when I'm done my UFC career, I will box Roy Jones."

Dan Henderson: Jon Jones is 'not genuine'
BURBANK, Calif. -- Dan Henderson remains among the list of fighters who consider Jon Jones something a bit different than how he presents himself in public. The 42-year-old former PRIDE and Strikeforce champion was making media rounds in the Los Angeles area on Tuesday, promoting his upcoming UFC 161 main event bout against Rashad Evans, when he was asked if he'd rather fight Jon Jones, the UFC light heavyweight champion, or cut back down to middleweight and get a rematch with Anderson Silva. "I'd like to fight Jon Jones more than I'd like to fight Anderson Silva," said Henderson. "Just because I have less respect for him as a person than Anderson. He's not genuine. I think how he portrays himself is not how he really is. I think the fans have picked up on how he really is, as well."
