So, there is no question about Dana's support on his four rounds bout against Roy Jones Jr. Many UFC stars including Conor McGregor has shown their interest in the 4 round exhibition fight.

In a UFC Vegas post-fight conference, after Dana was asked about how he feels about his old friend coming out of retirement and fighting Roy Jones Jr. he said:
I'm nervous for Mike, he says he has the spark, he wants to fight, he wants it, Jones wants it, they 're grown men – I'm 100% supportive.
Added that Dama also said that he'd probably go watch the fight and outed that he was planning to fly out to Mike. In his own words, UFC chief said:
"Maybe next week, I 'm going out to watch him practice"
