JAMES TONEY:

"Chuck Liddell seemed uneasy with me being at UFC 107," stated NABO heavyweight champion James "Lights Out" Toney, who was in Memphis, Tennessee last Saturday to attend UFC 107. When he caught up with UFC President Dana White to discuss the possibility of fighting inside the Octagon, Toney said his mere presence intimidated former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell. "I met up with Dane. He was cool and said we could do business," Toney revealed. "We exchanged numbers and I texted him all night, 'Don't forget chicken shit!' But I was sitting behind Chuck Liddell and I could tell he was uncomfortable with my presence."

Toney (72-6-3, 44 KOs) believes the UFC could do big numbers with his addition, similar to the success of crossover stars from other organizations, such as WWE star Brock Lesnar and EliteXC's Kimbo Slice. "I think I can break records with the UFC. I would fight Kimbo Slice, Chuck Liddell or Randy Couture; Brock Lesnar too. He could get it and we would do a ton of buys," Toney added.
