Go Sonnen!

  1. Hopefully he goes for a successful TD, sooner then later.

I'm "assuming" because Toney is a pro boxer, that he ought to acclimate to establishing pace & distance first on the feet (however, rumors are that Toney isn't really even training anymore and I don't mean just his ground game, but at all).

    Also, Couture is Greco Roman, so he doesn't have that shoot from afar, football tackle, free-style wrestling TD's. Randy's best TD's are from a body clinch, so we'll see. Randy certainly "can" shoot from a distance, but that's not his specialty, like it is with GSP, Sonnen, Kos, Fitch....

    I think the outcome are going to be utter, polar opposites. Either Toney comes in and looks utterly pathetic, or he comes in and shocks the MMA world with a nasty, first round flash.
    I agree with you there, and not even training, this seems pretty stupid, If i were him i would spend alot of time with takedown def and work alot in the clinch...

    And yes, also a bad spot for couture to be, im not sure how well Toneys clinch boxing is but im sure he has the power to throw a few haymakers from most clinch positions

    And agree again, either Toney by KO/TKO or Couture takes it to the ground fairly easy and dominates..

    Spider still won.

    Silva's win was about as meaningful and worthwhile as this:

    I made $900 on the most recent Lakers play off's. I thought that was pretty cool until your 10G's.

    Bernard Hopkins released a statement favoring Randy and B-Hop has dumped on MMA in the past.

    "I think James Toney is going to get his ass kicked. James Toney is out of his league," Hopkins recently told Mauro Ranallo on Sirius' Hardcore Sports Radio. "I believe and I'll go on record with this, the best MMA guy or UFC guy goes up against the boxer in the world, in their arena ... gets their ass kicked. I don't care if it's Floyd [Mayweather], [Manny] Pacquiao or Bernard Hopkins. It's not what we do."

    Hopkins also added that if UFC champ Anderson Silva tried to straight up box against an elite boxer, he'd struggle as well.

    "This is a different arena. I'm not saying he won't have his moments," said Hopkins. "Listen, when that instinct comes in. When one guy is used to taking a guy down, using his forearm or chin or whatever and you take that away, it's like taking his teeth out of his mouth. He's no longer a lion."
