I heard Toney apparently didn't work much on the takedowns...

When i watched it the first time, i thought that it should have been stuffed immediately. But watching the .gif, it's really a beautiful single.

James Toney had no grappling skills whatsoever and never belonged in the Octagon. Plain and simple.

You can see the UFC Canvas is brutal on the knees as soon as Randys knee hits the Mat it stops there was no give at all. LOL good thing he had his range right or he may have been stuffed lol.

It was so ridiculous. I assumed it was going to go that way but not that bad. Not even one punch thrown. wtf. I love to see epic fails but James Toney took the cake.

Rarely do u see a low single, or an ankle pick work in MMA. But it was the perfect move for Randy to use..

WAR THE ANKLE PICK. Reminded me of this kid i wrestled with in HS. Half of the time he would shoot the ankle pick as soon as the whistle sounded! Wormk and awful lot as well. Granted he wrestled 105 and was fast as shite

isnt this what palhares does just dive for a leg and grab your ankle untill it breaks or you tap.

Something like that. I like how Couture put it though, he said he had to dig that out of his old bag of tricks because he didn't want to give Toney even the slightest range to throw a counter punch. Is there a classier man in MMA? That was a very good way of putting it and respectful to Toney. Kudos to Captain America.
