Are you up for some Thursday night MMA and boxing on the same card? Well Island Fights 46 in Pensacola, Florida is for you!
Headlining this UFC Fight Pass-streamed event is none other than 49-year-old legendary former multi-division world champion Roy Jones Jr (65-9, 47 KOs), who is ending his career in front of his hometown fans against journeyman Scott Sigmon (30-11-1, 16 KOs). This will be contested at cruiserweight (200 lbs) for the WBU title, which is utterly meaningless in boxing’s convoluted alphabet soup belt system, so much so that this is a ten-rounder and not twelve.
Bloody Elbow is the place to discuss both Jones vs. Sigmon, as well as the four undercard bouts preceding it. You can watch the entire event, starting at 8:30 PM ET/5:30 PM PT by clicking this link. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) it appears as if Krazy Horse Bennett’s fight won’t be broadcast.
