Roy Jones Jr. To Battle Retired MMA Fighter Lytle?

By Brandon Stubbs, Contributing Writer Roy Jones Jr. will finally get his wish and fight a MMA fighter in a boxing ring.

Chris Lytle says he’ll come out of retirement for a short notice fight.

So in other words, Chris Lytle is letting the UFC know well ahead of time that if they need a short notice welterweight replacement, he’s available. Which is nice.
