UFC 118 James Toney's UFC Experiment Over After Lopsided Loss

http://www.mmafighting.com/2010/08/2.../?ncid=webmail

I wonder if any more boxers will step up in the octagon?

I have to get it to Toney. There have been boxers talking shit that a boxer can go into the UFC and wreck shop. Toney actually made that step. That take balls to do. Plus, I'm pretty sure Toney got a nice check for it too.

I like how he says he can't fight Kimbo, that's a sideshow I would not be surprised if more boxers got into it,the sport is evolving.

if a boxer would even think about fighting in the UFC, they'll have to practice takedown defense for about a year. Besides, I don't think Dana White would have another boxer fight in the UFC without proving he can work on the ground.

Hell, I can see more guys from the WWE fight in the UFC then boxers stepping up to fight.

Good point just look at Brock Lesnar,I never thought he would come as far as he did. Randy Couture is no joke even for his age, sucks these guys only get one shot to make it happen.

NSFW--> Entensity.net usually has all the big fights on their homepage within a couple days.

They aren't up just yet though.

Thanks for the link. The fight's up now, seems Toney's defense was pretty weak but he has heart for going into the octagon.

Brock Lesnar = WWE
James Tonney= Boxer

Brock Lesnar = Legitimate threat in the UFC

James Tonney = Dud

Therefore, WWE is clearly not fake

Remember Brock was a collage wrestler so he knew ground game somewhat. Tonney knew nothing once he was off his feet

The best thing to do is take boxing or kick boxing lessons first then jiu-jitsu. It will give you the best of both and allow you to go head up with a striker and a grappler.
