    I hope James gets JDS, Kongo, Barry, Nelson, ect. one day. Till then I hope Randy does not stand and trade with this fool. I hope he takes him down and breaks something to get his a$$ outa here.

    i think toney can do better at 185 or 205, he will get crushed either way but at least he can score some w's

    agreed, there's no way he could stop a shot from lesnar which would give him about 3s to knock him out. Couture on the other hand Toney might actually have a chance to stuff a take down or maybe two, I know I'm in the minority here but I really think Toney has a pretty good chance in this fight.

    I a lot of guys here are underestimating Toney's ability as a boxer. He's a serious threat standing. I actually am giving him an edge over Randy and will not be surprised if he knocks him out (although I would love to see Randy win) and then let the sound bites begin (hopefully with subtitles).

    There is no way in hell he can stuff one of Randy's take downs. He could potentially catch him with a punch on the way in but there is no way he has developed the take down defence to stuff Randy.

    It's more than just having a good sprawl to stopping the take down, If Couture gets in on his legs, yes he LIKELY (I still dont think that's gonna be a sure thing though) will take him down but Toney will have much better footwork than couture and that's the real key to keeping it on the feet. Look at how Anderson SIlva fights, when he wants to no one ever comes close to taking him down and when it does go to the ground it's almost just as much b/c silva is just as confident with the opponent on the ground as on the feet. That coupled with the fact that Couture isnt too quick with his shot (see Brandon Vera fight) is gonna make this a much closer fight than most people are thinking it is.

    Maybe you should watch A. Silva vs Travis Lutter.

    no that guys right. Anderson's takedown defense is mostly his speed and footwork. When someone gets a hold of him he looks like he's falling down like a tree. Pretty funny. He's just great at not letting you get a hold of him.

    I did, look how that ended for Lutter, Silva was never scared of being on his back against Lutter

    Why are you hating? I quite like Toney and find him extremely entertaining. He respects the sport and just loves a tear up...what's wrong with that?!



    I'm just looking forward to another great fight...

    this guy is so funny! how is your relationship with dana white?

    " its cool but he has been talking shit , hes saying he will make an example of me , he can go to hell , after i Knock out randy , i will Knock him out "



    the guy talks a lot of trash but come on , you have to respect a guy like that! the ma is a boxer , and now his fighting MMA!



    who has done that? no one!! at least he got balls !

    and we will see what he got , im believe he got a very nice chance

    vs Couture early in the first round , he Can KO randy!!

    but i will be cheering for the natural .



    as for other fighter in heavyweight , chances are not good for him

    Lesnar will take him out quickly , but funny how he said he ran like a lil girl when Carwin hit him hahahaha



    UFC 118 cant waiiiit!!!

    the last time I was excited about a boxing match? Hell, I'm excited for every fight in the Super Six tournament. Also, for the floyd/shane fight. Lots of good boxing matches out there. It's a shame none of the Klitchkos wanted to come of some cash to fight Toney (instead of ducking/lowballing him). People would have been excited for that.

    Interesting to hear a boxer say it versus an mma guy or a prick (Dana) say it

    Yes thanks for subtitles - first time understood what he is saying - suspicion of heavy brain damage confirmed.

    Interesting. It actually sounds like Toney has more respect for MMA than for boxing.

    Why speculate on how Toney is going to do? Let's just see, than talk, will have more point to the statement. One thing I can definitely say about James Toney is that you got to love the way he hypes the fight up! More I listen to his interviews, more I like him.
