Why was this fight never made then? It was picked for someone who had little to no chance of losing, could go in against a guy who'd never had an MMA fight in his life. Really unfair, even if Toney did call him out. Diaz called out Silva yet everyone on the site has uproar, but are cool with Couture Vs Toney?
How is it unfair mate? James Toney not only disrespected alot of MMA fighters but the sport as a whole. In my opinion he deserved to be made to look a fool, which is exactly what happened. Why even let him have a chance at winning a fight by giving him a stand-up fighter? Every MMA fan knew what was going to happen when they matched him up with Couture, but some of my friends who are boxing fans thought Toney would just KO him. I think it definitely educated a few non-MMA fans as well as Toney himself.
