Although their relationship seemed to be turbulent at times, future boxing Hall of Famer James "Lights Out" Toney told FightHype.com that he would love to let UFC President Dana White promote his next boxing fight. "I want Dana White to promote my next boxing match. That will make all of these boxing promoters mad," stated Toney, who for some reason has been unable to secure any meaningful boxing matches as of late. In fact, the boxing legend hasn't seen ring time since September of last year, when he stopped little-known Matthew Greer in 2 rounds.
Never one to turn down a challenge, Toney also wants another crack inside of the Octagon, suggesting that the UFC would be wise to put him on their November card, UFC 123: Rampage vs. Machida, which is slated to take place in his backyard of Detroit, Michigan. "If they want to sell any tickets in Detroit, they should put me on there. Bitch ass Rampage can't sell no tickets in my hometown," Toney added.
