    If Toney goes in guns blazing, he will knock out glass-jaw Randy.

    If Randy gets his arms around Toney for even a second, the fight is over.

    :rofl:

    The man has been KO'd twice, and that is from getting absolutely clobbered on the jaw. at least that I can remember. And that is fighting the best of the best for an entire career.

    glass jaw, :gtfo:

    I would have rather seen someone like Pat Barry, Cro Cop, or Yvel fight him. Randy will just close distance, take down, beat up, and choke out. No real excitement in that.

    Not exciting, but will prove to the moron boxing fans that a boxer has no chance in MMA against someone with a ground game.

    That alone is worth making this fight happen IMO. Although they should have done it with a superscrub with good takedowns to make boxers look even worse.

    I think randy is too smart to just charge in headfirst and get ko'd. I imagine he'll play range games to get in toney's head, then cover up, fake a shot, get his body lock clinch and game over.

    but then again I'm stupid

    Aside from getting KO'd twice, he has been getting dropped nearly anytime someone hits him in the face lately. Brock dropped him, Big Nog dropped him twice, and I haven't seen the fight since it aired live, but didn't Vera hurt him from a punch as well?

    He's got a glass jaw. He didn't used to, but he does now.

    Brock didnt hit him on the chin, it was the back, side of the head. Nog dropped him once good, once meh, and Randy recovered quite well. I dont remember Vera hurting him from a punch at all, regardless I dont see how getting hurt from a punch = glass jaw.

    Couture 30-27 via lean against Toney on the cage, and land a few body shots and leg stomps


    YAWN for this fight

    They should have kept Buentello around for one more fight to fight Toney

    Are you serious? The leading MMA organization in the world should have given their first boxer a match made in heaven? Buentello is one of the only guys who probably wouldn't have much of a chance against Toney.

    They need to feed Toney to ground fighters consistently and prove that boxers can't win against someone who will take them down.

    I dont think you are seeing this from the business stand point...Now that they have Toney..his boxing background means nothing...they can make a ton of money off this guy....hes a big name....Its not like they are borrowing him from the Boxing ranks to come in and fight the UFC champ to risk the champ losing...putting him in tehre against Buentello would only hype Toney more, and no serious fan or fan that has any idea whats going on would make the assumption of Boxing>MMA just because Toney would KO Buentello....

    I just think putting Toney in there right away vs Couture is plain stupid for the company...Hype this guy up, let him KO some of yoru low end guys..and then give him some competition...


    That being said..maybe Dana truly hates teh guy, and they want Toney to look stupid..so they bring in a master game planner/great wrestler like Couture to neutralize Toney and grind out a win.....This is not a smart decision business wise..but maybe thats whats going on...I dont know.

    Yeah I guess you're right - that would make sense from a business standpoint. You'd get boxing fans coming over to buy PPVs with Toney on them. But from an MMA fan's point of view I'd love a Couture/Toney matchup because I'm sick of dipshit boxing fans running their mouth about how MMA guys suck and they would get KO'd easily by any true boxer.

    What makes you think Couture won't be able to take him down?
