Roy Jones Jr. scoffs at suggestion of Mayweather vs. McGregor fight

BY foxsports • May 18, 2016

Despite Floyd Mayweather's instance that he's truly considering coming out of retirement to fight UFC featherweight Conor McGregor and the Irishman's attempts to play along, UFC president Dana White says there's "no way in hell" they two champions face off anytime soon.

Well, add former champion and all-time great Roy Jones Jr. to White's side of the back-and-forth. The former Olymian told FightHubTV recently that not only would Mayweather smoke any MMA fighter that wanted to step into the ring with him but that there's far too much red tape to ever make it happen.

For years, Jones was linked to a potential superfight with then-middleweight champion Anderson Silva, but things never came to fruition. We wouldn't be surprised if Jones was so well-versed on the obstacles of putting together a MMA vs. boxing bout due to his experience working the UFC and Silva.
