Pre-UFC 118 Hype!!!


Lee Payton at the Boxing Bulletin has a great piece on James Toney vs Randy Couture. He includes some memorable MMA vs Boxing moments where the boxers didn’t do too well. He also gives his prediction. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Toney has held title belts at 160, 168, 190 and nearly grabbed one at heavyweight* during a professional boxing career spanning about 20 years. He is almost certainly headed to the Hall of Fame when he hangs ’em up for good. While Toney has never been short on guts or fighting skills, he’ll go down as an underachiever because he has had to battle the scale for so many years.

Now in his 40’s he looks more like someone’s loud uncle than an active prize fighter. In all honesty, he shouldn’t be fighting anymore. With the gut he is currently sporting and the miles he’s accumulated, boxing at a high level is out of the question, so here he is trying to make a quick buck in MMA.

Here’s one instance where the boxer won and won in big fashion:
