I am looking forward to this match. Maybe because I dislike Toney.

That being said Couture has a chance of getting caught.

Brock Lesnar got a Title shot in the UFC after 3 fights. Its a Business Toney will draw and Randy will draw. Its an Intresting fight due to the unknow (Toneys MMA/Couture's ablity to not get hit or survive getting hit). Its a Freak show fight I think we can all agree on that but its a legit freak show due to the high skill level of both fighters.

And I hope Toney knocks him out cold. Couture has been the UFC's sideshow attraction for a couple fights. They want Couture to have marketable freebes so they can keep making money off him.

I want Toney to knock him out fast, demand a ton of money, and fail against a real contender.

I am not looking foreward to this.

This is going to be a clinic, a wrestling and clinch work clinic that is.

Listening to Toney, I've realized that he's actually borderline delusional. He is saying all these things with such conviction, he really believes that he should have no problem taking out these 'fake' MMA fighters. This logic comes from his percepton that he's already fought the best 'fighters' in the world for the last 20+ years. This is where it gets problematic for James, he's boxed with the best boxers, he hasn't fought the best fighters......its gonna be 'UFC 118 Humbled' for Toney. He's gonna look like a fish outta water.....
