Big John McCarthy explains the rules of MMA to Frank Shamrock
"Superstar boxer Roy Jones Jr. has expressed interest in facing UFC Middleweight Champion, Anderson Silva, after Silva had let his intentions be known that he wished to face Jones in a boxing contest. Promoter Bob Arum was eager to promote such a bout to let the world see that "those MMA guys can't throw a straight punch". Unfortunately it seems the impedus [sic] to set up such a fight is dead in the water, since the UFC is no hurry to see their Champion compete in a venue not being promoted by them. Enter Nick Diaz. With Strikeforce's more flexible attitudes towards fighting and the Strikeforce-Showtime alliance, the barriers to such a fight could very well be coming down. Our camp has already contacted Top Rank Boxing to let them know we would be 100% in favor of such a matchup. Now the ball is in their court." -- posted at GracieFIghter.com, site of manager/trainer Cesar Gracie
