I never thought it was possible, but there are actually negotiations going on between UFC middleweight champion and boxing champion Roy Jones Jr for a boxing match. The reason why Silva is moving to boxing is because he probably feels that there is nobody left for him to beat in MMA after beating Rich Franklin twice and then taking out Dan Henderson earlier this month. The only other possibilities for Silva would be to face either Georges St. Pierre (a welterweight) or Rampage Jackson (a light heavyweight). Both fighters have fights upcoming in the next few months, so the fact that Silva wants to have this one boxing match does not surprise me.
