That's the point of placing Kimbo against Toney — Toney's embarrassment. If those two guys could put 6million+ eyes on the screen, which is a certain possibility, that says a lot about the UFC's top brass being overshadowed by two "UFC fighters" who aren't really MMArtists to begin with. However, Kimbo dusting Toney off is a surefire sign that Toney is lamb meat for the T-rex's in the HW division if he can't even take Kimbo.
I agree losing to kimbo is more embarrassing than losing to a genuine heavyweight top dog
The problem being that i can see toney having a shot against kimbo, and i wouldnt be at all surprised if its a one time only deal with him in the UFC. He needs to be taken out first time round, then let him see if his pride brings him back.
If they let lesnar take on former champ Mir in his first UFC match, then they can afford to let toney get in there with a real contender
