Default How would prime Roy Jones have done in MMA?

How would a prime Roy Jones have done in MMA? I mean, he had the athletic abiliy, natural talent, and speed for it.

Someone would grab his foot at the first 10 seconds of the fight and take him down without he even land a punch....
I love Roy but thatīs the reality.....

How would a dragon do fighting a unicorn?

A prime Roy Jones had no concept of takedown defence, jiu-jitsu, checking legkicks, fighting in the Muay Thai clinch, and on and on and on.

Roy would have done poorly. He would have knocked out chumps, but he'd have got dragged down, dominated and submitted by top fighters who had intelligence and technique.

In a boxing ring? Jones dazzles, embarrasses and destroys any of them.

People need to understand and accept that they are two completely different sports. These continual questions are boring because the answer is always the same.

MMA already had a prime Roy Jones. His name was Anderson Silva.

A prime Roy Jones would have beaten quite a few. But as soon as anyone got hold of him it would have been goodnight.

A Roy Jones bought up on MMA instead of boxing on the other hand could have been world class.

Some people are made for MMA, like Sonnen. Some people are made for boxing, like RJJ. Not too many can switch sports.
