Although the rumored boxing match between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather isn’t signed yet, if it does happen, Roy Jones Jr. and Anderson Silva are evidently down to co-headline the card.

If you’re fairly new to combat sports, then you might think this is coming way out of left field. But, Jones Jr. and Silva have repeatedly expressed a desire to box one another. In fact, a few years ago, Dana White even reported he was going to meet with Jones Jr. to discuss the proposed match-up.

Well, fast forward to now, and Jones Jr. recently tweeted out the following proposal, and Silva seems to be on board with the idea:

Now, obviously a lot would have to fall into place for this to happen. First, there’s still a lot of insiders who don’t believe McGregor and Mayweather will ever fight, even though the latter has reported they’re getting close to a deal. Then, there’s the issue of whether McGregor and Mayweather would even be interested in having Jones Jr. – Silva co-headline, although, as Jones Jr. said, it probably take the card to new heights in terms of sales.

Silva, meanwhile, is coming off a controversial, decision win over Derek Brunson earlier this month at UFC 208.
