Why did you have to sign this guy Dana? no one actually wanted to see this guy again. Randy please kick his ass and shut his illiterate nonsensical mouth.
"hes gay" lmao
when he was asked who was helping him..."I got my Dad" wtf. lmao
He also said "King Mo Mousasi".!!!
HA! the only freaks show is in my pants lmao
he coulda ment king mo, mousasi but who knows
Could you not see his was insulted by the level of question he was being asked?! I understand that his elocution is not the best, but he is actually quite a smart guy and I can see him putting the lights out on Randy and it will be a great fight even if he doesn't. The guy has tapped Mo already and seems like a natural beast - albeit over the hill.
As he said, tune in August 28th....or whenever it is?
He got Toney because Dana White is getting the best MMA fighters on the planet in the UFC.
"Ummmm James, I don't think that a check side kick actually exists?"
Yeah Dana isn't about money, and all about credibility.
"no one actually wanted to see this guy again"
I did. Despite his blabber mouth, do you know anything about James Toney? World class.
toney was trying to intimidate that guy and he completely failed and looked like an ass in the process not to mention gassing after talking and standing up for five minutes boxing rounds are only two minutes
James Toney lmao what an uneducated no speaking disrespectful delusional peice of sht. James was the only one trying to intimidate and he couldnt even phase Ariel.
I never thought Ariel would make him look more stupid than he is.
Props to Ariel for asking the RIGHT questions in which James avoided and answered like a retard.
Your going down you disrespectful bum....typing is actually useless here James cant read or speak.
How has someone not killed this MF before now?
I cant hear what hes saying half the time!
hope randy shuts him up!
Randy will happily shut this guys face
Why are you going to MMA? Cuz I can't get nobody to fight me. None of the other champions won't fight me.
co-promotion, crazy how many people want it for the UFC. How stupid would that be.
co promotion has nothing to do with him not being able to get a fight.
ufc used to co promote and you didn't see it destroying the UFC for the years that they did co promote.
Lol Ariel Helwani is such a smartass.
i really dont like this guy, but realistically u take a pro boxer and put 4 ounce gloves on him and he could be dangerous, yea every other part of his game will suck, but there is a chance that he could catch randy with a big shot, im pullin for randy 100% but it might be a lil risky for randy to stand and exchange
randys been fighting long enough that he should be able to dodge a few punches and take him down with easy
o yea i def agree that randy is smart and that he will prob use his wrestling, but u gotta think with all the crap toney's been talkin, that randy will want to go for the knockout jus to prove a point
lol@side check kick
It's sad how boxing can give fghters such extensive brain damage, now THAT'S a brutal sport, but so was pride fighting, however if you were out you were out in pride
I'm so embarrassed for him.
James Toney interviews should come with subtitles, a small man playing a squeeze box and a monkey busking for change.
August 20 can't get here quick enough for me. Randy, please, please, beat the crap out of this illiterate and send him back to (if it weren't for this sport I'd either be dead or in jail)....boxing.
MMA doesn't need idiots like this.
Lol tony's clearly been hit in the head too much
DW will sign anyone who sells ppvs, except fedor.
LMAO Ariel: Danas been second guessing why he signed you.............................thats hard for anyone to take.
This **** is a ****ing retarded. Slow speaking, dumb ass, wind nose breathing up all the mma fighter's air. Please Randy kick this dumb ass face in. It's funny he tried to be hard in front of a interviewer. I guess all dumb ass bitches try that move.
BOXING IS DEAD. DONE.GONE. GAME OVER. SEE YA LATER
James Toney is a disgrace. This really is a freakshow. I dont know why dana would sign him. He talks so much shit, but Randy is gonna wrestle him to the ground and submit him! Boxers are so ignorant to the fact that mma is just a more evolved sport than boxing with many other aspects and if he thinks he is just gonna walk in there and knock him out, well then he is wrong
DW is taking a big risk letting this fight happen. Brocks performance already has a big ? over the HW division. If Randy loses, there will be an even bigger one. How old is Randy btw? Credit to him for remaining hungry and fit enough to compete , but gotta wonder how long he takes to heal up these days.
J toney does have a valid point. A wrestler can come in and whoop some of the UFC's best, even though he has little all round game, so why not a boxer also?
A good wrestling career (real wrestling) is much more likely than a good boxing career to convert to success in MMA. Anyone that has ever thrown a punch can beat the piss out of a guy that they're laying on top of and controlling. Wrestlers are experts at laying on top of and controlling. So they just train to do a couple feints, cover-up, and get the take down and they've already won most matches.
Boxers, on the other hand, are experts at striking in very limited circumstances. Most MMA fighters have at least a decent ground game. So boxers are at an immediate disadvantage their, because anyone who fights them will exploit their weakness. If Toney were going against a pure hands striker, I'd give him the advantage. But throw in leg kicks and it is a different ball game (as we saw even with Machida). Then toss in Randy's take downs... Toney is going to get his ass handed to him.
A bower would find a wrestlers chin before the wrestler cold get the td. carwin proved that against brock. toney would probably ko brock quite easily
I'm pretty disappointed by so many of the close-minded comments on this page. No Toney doesn't speak well, but no one can deny his skill. One of the best slippers, a great counter-puncher, and has a 72-6 record across SIX weight classes with 44 Knockouts.
No he isn't eloquent, but nor was Tyson, or a lot of boxing greats. I only suggest that if you think he is a pushover because he can't complete full sentences, he may surprise you come August 28.
I'm not sure what Toney is trying to prove but his disrespect to all things MMA just makes him more unlikeable by the minute. He's a very talented boxer but we've yet to see what kind of Mixed Martial Artist he is, and until he's proven himself in the cage, he should just stop flapping off. If he spends half as much enrgy training as he does yacking, he might just learn something. Either way Couture is sure to give him a warm welcome.
"The only freak show I got is between my legs." Classic.
I wonder who he gets to fight if he beats randy?
Could he be champion?
All in jest, but you never know
