Thanks for the laugh guys.
You know who you are.
Spider still won.
I love it.
So who do u guys want to see win the next PPV? lol
Results count everything. Sorry Mullet. Not sure who it was that died and made you King so that you have free reign to be condacending when all you cleary have is an opinion like the rest of us.
Was called right earlier in this thread, you have the need to win all discussions.
Even Sonnen was quoted of saying Silva may have been injured as he expected more resistance from him.
I guess that is only someone's opinion also and doesn't count for much in your book.
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.

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

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..
"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."
