What happens if Silva loses to RJJ?

If Anderson Silva fights Roy Jones Jr. after his UFC contract is up and he loses, does that take away his P4P status?

Also, would this ruin possible fights against Fedor and Mousasi if he were to pursue these fights as well after he is done with the UFC. (If it happens)

If it was a MMA fight or even a freestyle striking type of match then I think it would. But last I heard its a boxing match so I don't think it will affect his P4P status very much if any.

If it's a straight boxing match and he doesn't suffer any debilitating injuries, it shouldn't have any relevance to his MMA ranking/career.

Ugh Silva, this is such a bad idea. His ability to keep great distance and utilize all parts of his body is what makes him good, his boxing isn't anywhere close to say, Vitor's level. Standing toe-to-toe with a boxer like RJJ is going to leave Silva staring at the lights.


Why can't he be this motivated to go and fight Fedor instead?

because he doesnt idolize and copy fedor, he idolizes and copies RJJ and he wants to know how far he has come.

It wont affect a thing but having to hear boxing fans laugh at MMA fans regardless of the fact it has no bearing on rankings.

If Silva loses it won't affect his mma career or his p4p standing, but I'd hate to see all the boxing vs. mma crap that will come from him losing that fight.

theres NO WAY RJJ will fight silva in a K1 match.After all, why should he? Anderson is the one that called him out not the other way around.Plus we all know RJJ would never risk losing by fighting in k1 rules.In a boxing match RJJ will maul anderson but I dont think it affects his MMA status, the only thing it will do is fuel the boxing > mma crowd like bob arum.

RJJ will remind him why he went from boxing to MMA in the first place.

NOTHING would happen. It's a different sport. It's like asking if RJJ's career would be affected if he lost a grappling match.

Why, because he won by KO in less than two rounds and found it too easy? Because he was a BJJ black belt and felt those skills were going to waste in boxing? Are you aware that Anderson had fifteen MMA fights (including five Pride fights) before he did his one and only, completely dominant, boxing match?

If you ask me the reason he didn't keep boxing was because a year after his first match he was UFC MW champion, and his contract precluded further boxing gigs.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Not quite. Silva's hype right now is at astronomical levels. I think his hype is so crazy right now, Silva believes he could actually beat RJJ. And boxing is part of MMA, grappling is not part of boxing.

If he loses, and in a very convincing way, it will affect his hype status. He'll stay in the top P4P but I think perhaps less people will put him at #1 P4P. There's no way it affects his actual rankings but it could definitely hurt his "legacy."
