    Yeah..... oh hell..... let's make that opener -1000. Unless James Toney is training for this ************ "No Retreat, No Surrender" style this is going to be ugly. I literally mean featuring the ghost of Bruce Lee, a tune-up fight against Van Damme, and all. **** it, -1200.

    So you'd bet on Toney at even money?

    If Couture is sensible he'll take him down and win via GNP or a quick submission. If he's not he'll get knocked out.
    I am not even considering that Couture would do anything other than quick GNP. He doesn't seem to have the ego that would prompt somebody to "stand and bang" when it's a stupid strategy. If he contracts Koschek syndrome what you say could easily come to pass, but I don't think that'll happen.

    Not that it matters....but what weight class is this match going to be conducted?

    Really, the lighter the better for Toney.

    So in one corner, we have a guy who was an alternate on the Olympic wrestling team. In the other, we have a guy who's never seen a takedown in his life.

    This isn't a fight, it's legalized manslaughter.

    Wow this is going to piss off Anderson Silva. He's been begging to fight a boxer for 2 years.
    Funny coincidence, don't you think?

    And yet, what if coming down the aisle to the cage, Couture realizes something.

    He's in the freak show fight. Randy "The Denture-All" Couture, his money gone because he was too stupid to hang on to it, his career gone because in his big comeback fight—the one that was supposed to save MMA from the World Wrestling Federation—he lost to a shaved bear. He's already been reduced to selling crappy pulleys, which certainly aren't helping his pectoral sag into fried-egg tits, and straight-to-DVD films. Facing off against the 0-0 Toney, and the 0s represent both his record and physique, maybe Couture will realize that life is futile, step up to the boxer, put down his hands and tell his opponent, "Just please, beat me so badly I won't remember a thing that happened since 2006."

    So I'd give the fight 3-1 odds in favor of Couture.

    Toney´s boxing style isnt even that well suited for MMA. He is not a big power puncher and rarely had one punch KOs, he is a tactician and defense master that broke down his opponents and went to work in the later rounds.

    3x5 minute fights is not suitable for him and his only chance to win this fight is a one punch KO....its a shame he doesnt really hit all that hard.

    I've been trying to get through to a representative for the Mass SAC to see if they'd even consider approving this bout. So far I have gotten no response.
