AndersonSilvaUFC117_5976-478x270Everyone has dreams. And Anderson Silva has his.

After losing his first fight in seven and a half years, Silva saw Chris Weidman walk out of the Octagon with the belt that had been wrapped around his waist for the better part of seven of those years. So one of the first things on his agenda is remaining focused and regaining the middleweight belt at UFC 168 on Dec. 28 in Las Vegas.

But beyond the UFC belt, Silva has other dreams.

One that he has often mentioned is boxing multi-time world champion Roy Jones Jr.

Silva was part of the UFC World Tour that stopped in Los Angeles on Monday to promote his UFC 168 rematch with Weidman. During his meeting with the media, the conversation steered to the topic of him boxing Roy Jones Jr.

MMAWeekly.com was on scene to catch up with Anderson Silva and discuss the potential of him fulfilling his personal dream of fighting Roy Jones, Jr. in a boxing match.
