UFC 118 is just around the corner, and fans are basically salivating in anticipation of watching James Toney and Randy Couture duke it out. Get the scoop along with video below.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship is uncharted territory for James Toney, but despite that, the professional boxer certainly isn’t lacking any confidence for his upcoming bout against UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture. After years of winning boxing titles Toney has perfected the art of trash talking, and has already laid a verbal smackdown on “The Natural,” saying things like:
“The guy is garbage.”
“As far as takedowns go, I welcome them. If he tries to take me down, it’s going to be a short night for him – a very short night. Matter of fact, I’ve got a pillow for him.”
And my personal favorite:
“Don’t worry about me, worry about Randy. If you see me fighting a bear, don’t worry about me. Protect the bear.”
“Lights Out” claims that he is in the best shape of his life after enduring months of grueling Mixed Martial Arts training, which isn’t too hard to believe either, especially since at one point in his career he weighed over 250 lbs. Couture on the other hand has also weighed upwards of that number at one point in his career. Yeah, these are two big boys with anger management issues fighting on August 28, so make sure to check it out live from Boston on Pay-Per-View. Or if you’re anything like me it is likely that you will wait until after the fight and watch the video online.
