Arlovski camp denies sparring session with James Toney

Arlovski camp responds to James Toney's comments:

Quote:
In a conversation with FightHype's own Percy Crawford, future Hall-of-Famer James "Lights Out" Toney talked about a prior sparring session he had with former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski. According to Toney, "it was ugly" and "they had to pull me off him." Upon hearing this news, a member of Arlovski's camp, who chose to remain anonymous, contacted FightHype.com to inform us that no such sparring session ever took place. "No one from the camp can recall them ever sparring," the source stated. "I know they both trained at Wild Card at some point, but they never sparred each other."

I said this earlier when he started calling out people like Brock,Randy,Chuck and others. he is relatively new to the MMA world, so he is trying to get as much attention around him as possible.

I hadn't heard the initial story but I for one hope its not true (obviously.) I guess its possible but did Toney claim they were sparring for boxing or MMA?

Just get this guy in the octagon and end this for good. Put him in there with Heath Herring or something.

I agree, get him in there with someone who has a ground game and the skills to take Toney there quick. Once this big mouth boxer gets put on his back he'll look like a fish flopping in the bottom of the boat.

There was talk of matching him with Kimbo-- BAD IDEA. Match him against a ground fighter with a chin.

Don't put him in there against somebody who will take him down, then the excuse will be that the other guy wouldn't "fight like a man" Put him in there against a Gilbert Yvel, Mirko Cro Crop or Junior Dos Santos, sombody who really utilizes kicks because then you will see Toney get laid out standing and that proves way more IMO.

That said its never a good idea to deny a story that hasn't caught on, since nobody pays attention to Toney I doubt anybody heard about his jibberish till AA denied it.

Yeah I am growing tired of Toney's talk. I just want him to fight already so he can either lose or have some merit to what he is saying...

putting him in there against a good ground fighter would be a bad business move for the UFC, they want to make as much money as possible off this guy. like Toxic said, put him in there against a good striker that knows how to throw some good kicks, doesnt matter which way the fight goes, it will be a good draw...

Agreed. Oh man, Gilbert would wreck Toney's legs so bad. And I don't think Toney's ever faced the kind of power that JDS has in his hands with those small gloves...

Can't wait to see Toney get wrecked.
