    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Anybody here see the big fight on Saturday night? Roy Jones Jr. makes history! I believe Roy is the only man in history to be the champion in 4 weight divisions with 6 championship belts in total! Wow, now he is a fighter!!!! I bet Roy could beat down most any martial artist around. He's got great handspeed, awesome footwork, and an eclectic original fighting style. Genius!

    I agree. If he could learn some takedown defense to keep a fight standing, he'd dominate in just about any division but the HW.

    Roy is good, I wouldn't say he's GREAT. As for giving him some grappling skills...could he keep up his striking game? Doubtful. Totally different strategy and mindset, not to mention coordinating multiple limbs and angles.

    We'll never really know until the $$$ is there in MMA to draw some boxer/striker talent into the scene.

    I don't know, Frank Shamrock in his prime vs. RJJ. Now that's a fight I'd pay some money to watch.

    If you take away the kicking, I'd put my money on Roy against any UFC guy his size. Matter of fact, who cares about kicking! I'll take Roy against anyone in the UFC that is his weight and size!

    CrimsonTiger, you sound like a Roy hater? You are wrong! Roy IS the BEST pound for pound fighter in the WORLD!!!! Stop hating.
