James Toney proved that boxers should stick to boxing

I am a former boxer, and, even though I've learned some BJJ, I could never imagine being in there against a BJJ Black Belt...that fight goes to the ground, and I'm in trouble.....kinda like James was :agree:

    That was a set up by Dana.

    Throwing an old, slow, and overweight James Toney in the cage with Capt. America?

    He never had a chance. :lol:

    Arlovski would make a good matchup. The best striker in UFC history who just happens to be a heavy weight.

    I miss that guy

    Machida vs. 'Rampage' officially set for UFC in Detroit

    September 14, 2010


    The Ultimate Fighting Championship has formally scheduled its return to Detroit in November with quartet of former champions.

    UFC 123 will take place Nov. 20 at the Palace in Auburn Hills, with a main event of Quinton "Rampage" Jackson vs. Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida and a co-main event of Matt Hughes vs. BJ "The Prodigy" Penn, the promotion announced Tuesday. Detroit hasn't hosted a UFC show since May 1996, when Dan Severn defeated Ken Shamrock in UFC 9's main event.

    All four men leading the card were UFC titleholders at various times and still remain in the top-10 of their main weight classes. Three of them are coming off losses, including two in a row for Penn, who will face Hughes at welterweight.

    Hughes has a three-fight winning streak, but Penn has been a difficult match-up for him in the past. He submitted Hughes in January 2004 to win UFC's 170-pound title and was dominating their September 2006 rematch before injuring his ribs during the bout and eventually succumbing to Hughes' ground-and-pound attack. That second clash led to Georges St. Pierre's infamous "I'm not impressed by your performance" dig at Hughes immediately following the fight.

    Last night was a weak card, the best fight of the night was Evan Dunham's domination of Shawn Sherk. Which ended up in a split decision going to Sherk, which makes no sense because Dunham guillotined him no less than 3 times, reversed or escaped every time Sherk took him down, and dominated in the stand up wobbling Sherk twice in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

    Mir-Cro Cop was terrible. Bader-Lil' Nog was equally boring, though Bader's win gives Jon Jones a legitimate competition.

    We have The Bisping show next month followed by Machida-Ramapage.
