I actually think it was the best match up for Toney. They gave him a 47 year old wrestler with a questionable chin who is undersized for heavyweight. If Toney lands the right punch he KO's a MMA legend. (a la Ray Mercer - Tim Sylvia)

I can't think of a decent heavyweight who would be an easier fight. Lesnar, Velasquez, Carwin, Mir, Cro Cop, Kongo, Nelson, JDS?

Randy might be old(er), but he is also the most knowledgable and experienced fighter in the division.

He is a master of the clinch, and he has been using the clinch very effectively to disarm superior strikers.

He may be undersized, but he will undoubtedly have a conditioning advantage over Toney and most other heavyweights.

Anybody's chin is suspect when facing a professional boxer. That said, Toney is less known for KO power than Mercer was, but take away the boxing gloves, and it doesn't take much.

I think any fight with a predominantly stand-up fighter would have been better for Toney. Toney has striking conditioning and skill, but he has not had time to learn the ground game or even develop sufficient take down defense for a wrestler of Couture's caliber.

Of course any prediction about a fight is just speculation. Anything can happen, but the odds are with Couture, since for him, there are many routes to victory. For Toney there is only one.

I will watch the free stream on the internet. \:D



Good luck with that, UFC has blocked all of the streams. This card is pretty good IMO.

You just got to know where to look. You won't see them on JustinTV
or any of the US outlets you have to look outside the English speaking world. The Phillipines, Argentina and Brazil all stream the fights you have to listen to them in Portuguese or Spanish.

My guess is he will be about as good at MMA as Kimbo Slice and we saw how that worked out! \:D

I say Toney goes 0/3 ,maybe 1/3 and quits fighting in MMA!
