Roy Jones Jr: 'I love mixed martial arts'


Hundreds of fight fans turned out to witness legendary American fighter Roy Jones Jr at the opening of a new Mixed Martial Arts gym in Litherland, UK on Monday.

The gym breathes new life in to the space once occupied by Bridge Road ABC, where a generation of South Sefton lads learned the art of boxing together.

Jones, speaking during his whistle stop tour of Merseyside, said: “Young people should join a gym like this because it will teach them discipline, respect, and prepare them for the battle that is called life.

“I love mixed martial arts and have respect for anyone who enters a ring to fight another man, without a weapon in their hand.

“In my view you are less of man with a gun in your hand.

“And remember, you can’t take it to prison with you.”

"God bless this gym."

I don't know how many times I have watched that highlight video. Might be the best highlight video ever for all combat sports.

Dana White is the biggest pussy in history. As long as Dana white's gaping vagina is still bleeding, he won't let Anderson fight.Don't question Anderson's courage.
