I have been following this James Toney vs. Randy Couture feud online, and I must say, it’s even funnier than the Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin feud. Boxing legend James Toney has been signed to UFC to fight Randy Couture. James Toney has been obsessed with wanting to fight Randy Couture for a long time and Dana White gave him what he wanted. James Toney is a BOXER. Not a mixed martial artist. I repeat, a BOXER. Randy Couture has YEARS of mixed martial arts experience.
My opinion, that I think James Toney is challenging the wrong guy. Randy Couture would fucking destroy Toney. Toney might be able to throw a few hard punches at Randy, yes, but the fight will be over quickly once Toney gets a takedown by Couture, and Couture will give him the chokehold to end the fight. Randy Couture is well known for the chokehold. Randy Couture may seem like a nice, friendly and down to earth guy, but in reality, Randy is a monster when it comes to fighting.
Toney thinks he will beat Couture, which is hilarious. Toney thinks he will be successful in UFC. That’s how boxers are, delusional and they have huge egos as well. Why did Dana White agree to sign Toney even if Toney don’t have much MMA experience? I bet the only reason is to help PPV buyrates. Dana didn’t sign Toney because Toney is talented.
So of course, my money on who to win this fight is Randy Couture. Randy is a favorite fighter of mine and looking forward to seeing him fight again.
UFC 118 looks like a great card. I’m looking forward to seeing Edgar vs. Penn again too.
