Not a chance, Toney said today on a media teleconference. ”I’m not even thinking about losing,” said Toney. “I’m the best fighter Randy has ever fought. I’m not worried about what Randy can do. I’m winning, hands down – I’m knocking him out.”
On August 28, live from the TD Garden in Boston, on PPV, Toney and Couture will co-headline UFC 118. The main event features a rematch between B.J. Penn and Frankie Edgar for the UFC lightweight title.
“Sure, James poses a different style, has a unique boxing style,” said Couture. “I’ve had to adjust my tactics and training but the fight depends on James. It’s mixed martial arts, certainly, not boxing. Whatever skill set James has tried to learn and bring into this fight, I’ll counter by pure MMA. It’ll be interesting.”
