UFC President Dana White spoke to reporters after UFC on ESPN 18 and gave his thoughts about Mike Tyson’s performance during his exhibition fight against Roy Jones Jr.
“I was nervous. He’s (54) years old. Time is undefeated. Time takes us all down and one of the things I was worried for Mike is that he has this incredible aura still, and (54) years old – fighting is young man’s game. All that being said, he looked fucking awesome tonight. I was blown away by how good he looked. One of the things I was worried about with Roy – Roy’s 51 years old, but Roy’s been way more active than Tyson has been. But Roy actually got way more tired tonight than Mike, which was shocking. I’m happy for him. I hope they both made a fucking zillion dollars, and it exceeded my expectations.” H/T MMA Junkie
When asked about promoting a potential Roy Jone-Anderson Silva fight, Dana said “I don’t do old guy fights”. So there’s that.
