The promotion that will put on the bout has not been named, no venue or location has been announced, and no date has been set ??

In one of the more side show fights coming out of the MMA world right now is Boxing world champion James Toney Vs long faded, ex-UFC star Ken Shamrock. But this is no normal MMA fight, check out the change in rules for this bout.

Following a takedown the fight will be stood up after 30 seconds, regardless of positioning...

I'm actually interested in watching it as well. I know what to expect from this fight. It'll be the furthest thing away from legitimate mma but I still think it'll be entertaining to some extent.

This evens things out a bit more, otherwise toney would have slim chances.

I thought Toney was going to win anyway, but this makes me think so even more.

This reminds me of when Fedor fought Choi and they didn't allow knees so it was more in his favour (at least thats what I blame)

Pride didnt allow knees to the head whenever there was an outstanding weight differential. It wasnt just for the fedor fight.

This assures Toney will Knock Ken out cold. I'm genuinely starting to get worried for Kens Health =/
