Randy Couture submits James Toney via Arm Triangle in the First RoundPosted on August 28, 2010, 11:06 PM by Anton Gurevich
UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture did exactly what was expected from him, by submitting James "Lights Out" Toney via Arm Triangle in the First Round. Couture did a quick job in taking James Toney to the ground with a "sloppy" takedown, immediately improving his position to the full mount. Toney managed to defend Randy Couture's Ground and Pound quite well, but was clueless after The Natural unleashed Arm Triangle attempts. Toney did not tap to the first, but had no choice in Couture's second attempt.
In his post-fight interview, James Toney declared that he wants another shot in Mixed Martial Arts. A pure striking opponent could be a good option for James Toney, unlike the well-rounded Randy Couture. Captain America continues his winning ways, in what was probably the easiest victory in his career.
Finally, Dana White did an example of James Toney, proving that a World Class Boxer has little to do inside the Octagon against a well-rounded Mixed Martial Artist. One thing is for sure, in addition to securing another W, Randy Couture prevented an embarrassment from MMA fans around the World.
