Update,

We will be pinning this up for anyone who chooses to talk about the Toney-Couture fight. Please keep all results inside of the thread. NOTE: A separate thread will be provided in the UFC forum for Penn-Edgar II and that forum should be used to talk about the other parts of the card.

Im having a bit of reluctance ordering this UFC fight.

Im almost 100% sure that Toney is going to get his ass whoop in there....

Way outta shape and a complete novice...

This is an extreme boxing fan speaking.....Toney is losing this fight...

Of course he'll lose...getting his ass kicked? I don't know about that.

Despite James being a complete novice to MMA, he's NOT a novice to fighting. After over 80 professional fights, he's learned how NOT to get his ass kicked.

Slow, boring, methodical decision.

I just can't see Dana White allowing a boxer to win a UFC event, unless he's got a contract with Toney for future UFC contests. I mean, how would it look to his organization if Toney were to win? White's hoping to come out of this with his UFC cronies hoping to say, "See, a UFC champion can kick the ass of a multi-boxing champion."

I'm torn in half on this match. Part of me wants Toney to lose just to shut his mouth. But the other part of me DOES NOT want Toney to lose because it sets a bad precedent for UFC fans into falsely believing that their sport "is so much better than boxing."

I still say it is best to stop comparing and contrasting the two sports and let them co-exist as separate sports. Is that a bad thing?

That's what I'm saying. Toney isn't just a boxer, he's a straight up fighter. He'd handle his own in the streets. So while he's not an experienced MMA fighter, I don't think he'll go down like a chump.

First UFC fight I ever ordered. Fuck it. Toney has burned me more than a Tombstone whore, but I gotta ride for my sport, even thought this is NOT Boxing vs UFC.

This isnt UFC champ vs boxing champ. This is a UFC veteran and former champion taking on a lower tier boxing champ. Its not really either sports best representatives in the cage.

The Klits have some kickboxing background dont they? I know Vitali does at least. If VItali were to step in there vs Lesnar, that would be the best heavies in their respective sports getting it on. What we have here is much lower down than the elite.

Age really is a factor in this match. Randy is alot older than toney (from a combat sports perspective, they are both old, but randy is ancient). However, like hopkins, he never lets himself get out of shape. James is a fat fuck. Some guys can still have decent cardio while carrying a load of blubber (ie Big country Nelson, and Cabbage Carrera), but i dont think James is prepared for how grueling the wrestling game is on your cardio and anaerobic fitness. If he survives the first round, with Randy applying his relentless pressure, james is going to need a defibrillator in between rounds.

For an old dude, Couture is a cardio machine. Take a look at his highlights video. He's not a power puncher or juggernaut. He just overwhelms people with his pace and controls them with dominant greco roman wrestling.
