James Toney holds a professional boxing record of 72-6-3-2, 44 of those wins coming via knockout, recently signed with the UFC and he isn’t afraid to fight anyone.
“Let me tell you something, I came to the UFC to do one thing and that’s to fight the best out there. If it’s Couture, so be it. If it’s somebody else, so be it. Let’s get it on and popping. When Dana White said MMA fighters are better than boxers, come on now, you know better than that.”
“I’m going to destroy these dudes. If Randy Couture put on his Twitter page that he wants to see me, tell him it ain’t shit. Let’s make it happen. If not in June, he can be the one after that.”
His goal is simple, to prove to the world the boxers are better than MMA fighters, that is going to be a tough thing to prove especially when he has no wrestling or BJJ background and in a mixed martial art fight ground game is half the fight. However, Toney believes that if anyone tries to take him down they will get knocked out before they touch him.
“The fights start standing and that’s my comfort zone all day, you heard me. If they think they going to rush me to the ground and think it’s going to be easy and I don’t know what I’m doing, come on man. I’m a very strong man. I know what I have to do and if they shoot in on me, they getting launched into outer space like a satellite.”
Toney is rumored to make is MMA debut either at UFC 115 or 116, no official opponent has been anounced but rumors are flying around that Kimbo Silce, Randy Couture and even Forrest Griffin could be his possible opponents.
