I want Toney to win but after the Daley-Koscheck fight, I won't make that mistake again. Randy will do the same thing Kos did only finish it. Unless Toney catches him on the way in for a take-down, which could happen, I will be picking Couture TKO via GnP.
As I do so often, I stopped reading after I decided to quote this, excuse me for any repeated comments.
The difference I see here is that Coture has a glass Jaw, where as Kos has only ever been KO'd once, and everyone can be caught. His Takedowns are far superior to that of Coture's as well.
As to the matchup, it should be obvious that Toney has been drilling TD def like it's his job (which it is), and he has a serious chance of KOing Coture early.
Coture says he wants to fight Toney at 205, because he feels Toney will be better there, but that's bullshit. He wants Toney at 206 because Toney will have less energy there, due to the cut, and he'll be able to gas him out on the cage and ground, and eliminate any chance of a KO later. At 265, Toney has far more power than Coture can get, and hopefully more size.
I'm sure Coture will win, but I hope he gets KTFO, because I never want to see him fight again.
