I know it's a little off topic today, but I was thinking; how bullshit was the Couture/Toney fight? Has anyone ever had their first MMA fight in the UFC, against a hall of famer, who's style is designed to beat yours? I know Toney is a horrible boxer now, and he can barley even stand up, but they shouldn't have pulled such a dick move to try and 1-up boxing. Putting a complete new comer to MMA, with zero ground experience, in there with Randy Couture is a complete joke and really petty of those in charge. A former boxing world champion wanted to sign up and fight in the UFC. Can you imagine if Toney actually did good? I don't think it'd ruin MMA's image, I just think it would be a highly marketable name to have on THEIR roster.

Seriously? Toney had been bashing MMA for ages, and was in his late 40's. So they gave him the one guy who was even older than he was. It's not rocket science, dude.

James Toney specifically called out Randy on multiple occasions. It's the fight that he wanted. After long enough Couture just said okay.

That is why we watched a Hall of Famer choke out a garbage full of pudding.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Yeah Toney called out Couture, but there was also an element that if Toney had actually won some fights in the UFC it would have been an embarrassment to them, that an old boxer, pretty much a has been could walk into the UFC out of shape and knock guys out. It would have discredited MMA quite a bit I think. So no one better to go in and get the job done then Randy, and do it with that old simple wrestling move he used to get the take down.

Well couture already fought James toney so the UFC could make a new reality season where he beats up guys that probably shouldn't be fighting potential bouts could include one vs hulk hogan and another would be a rematch vs Tim Sylvia

I know this fight would never happen, but I would actually love to see it.

But I would still prefer to see JCVD fight Segal in a santioned fight. That would be swee tot see and Gene Lebell even if he's 150 years old now.


1. BJ "The Prodigy" Penn
2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

I bet it's a bit of sour grapes that Couture's acting is pretty bad...lolz! Seagal might be out of shape now, but he made his millions, was a bonafide 80's and 90's action star, and hooked up with one of the hottest models of the time...Kelly Lebrock. Weird Science anyone...

Against his wife, probably.

I would pay anything to see this. We should try and get a petition going.

(For Steve vs Randy that is, not Seagal vs his wife)

Right, made sense.

After all it would be like..
Seagal vs His Wife II..maybe III...IV?
Not sure if it is Wife #1 or Wife #2 or...

Hell now I'm confused.... Just easier to have him fight Randy.
