He's Back.............

Just thought I would pass the good news along, on one hand it's a freak show on the other hand one of them is winning a fight. :thumb02:

I actually really want to see this fight. It's not really a good fight, but it still interests me.

MMA pioneer Ken Shamrock (28-15-2) and current International Boxing Association heavyweight champion James Toney (0-1 MMA, 73-6 Boxing) have reportedly agreed to meet in a mixed martial arts contest this fall.

According to the professional boxer's camp, both the 47-year-old Shamrock and the 42-year-old Toney have both signed on for the contest, though a specific date and location have yet to be announced.

El Paso, Texas, appears to be the leading candidate to host the matchup, which was first reported by BJPenn.com.

Shamrock, who took part in the Ultimate Fighting Championship's debut event in November 1993, has remained active over the years. The PRIDE and Pancrase veteran stumbled through a difficult 1-7 stretch between 2002 and 2008, but Shamrock is now 2-2 in his past four fights after picking up wins over Johnathan Ivey and Ross Clifton.

Meanwhile, Toney made an improbably MMA debut this past August, when he was submitted in the first round by UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture at UFC 118. "Lights Out" went back to his primary focus in February, notching a unanimous-decision win over challenger Damon Reed and defending his IBA heavyweight boxing title.

It's currently unclear what promotion is backing the fight, and broadcast plans have yet to be announced.
Thought I'd put thet article on here.

This fight will probably last a few seconds longer than the last one. Toneys gonna get taken down again and subbed again, in the first round again. Lots of agains here. Can't see any other conclusion.

And just before some sad panda comes in and says it's in the wrong forum.

A. the article says they don't know "where" they are going to fight so there's a chance.

B. I put UFC in the title

C. EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE RETURN OF JAMES TONEY

LOL, another James Toney fight? And geez, Shamrock is still at it? This fight is the embodiment of a facepalm.

I bet Ken tries to stand with him.

leifdawg 06-24-2011 12:13 PM

Fights like this give MMA a bad name.

anderton46 06-24-2011 12:17 PM

Lol if Ken loses this...

I'd really like to see ken just stand and leg kick him into submission.

No one needs to know about the return of James Toney. Ever.
