While the highly anticipated matchup between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor has come to fruition, it won't necessarily be the start of more cross-sport battles.
"I highly doubt it," White said.
Mayweather confirmed the date of the fight against UFC star McGregor on his Twitter account Wednesday.
Jones suggested back in February a potential co-headliner with Mayweather and McGregor, although this seemed ambitious:
Roy Jones Jr. @RealRoyJonesJr
Roy Jones vs Anderson Silva and Mayweather vs McGregor double headline card UFC invasion. Would be biggest event of all time period2017-2-23 00:14:57
A day later, Silva seemed into the idea:
Anderson Silva @SpiderAnderson
All a dream needs to be accomplished is someone who believes that it can be done. #JonesJrVSSilva #SilvaVSJonesJr @RealRoyJonesJr2017-2-23 08:59:30
Like the other fight in question, this would be a battle between a boxing veteran and a fighter predominately from mixed martial arts.
Silva, 42, is one of the biggest stars in UFC history with a 34-8 career record. His last bout came in February when he defeated Derek Brunson. Jones, 48, is also coming off a February win over Bobby Gunn, improving his record to 65-9.
Although this potential bout remains a possibility with both fighters interested, White noted the boxing undercard will be handled by Mayweather Promotions.
