    So who does everyone think is going to win?

    I am real excited for this fight.

    I think what has made me so excited is hearing how confident Toney is. It's pretty incredible the way he talks about it. I know he doesn't sound the brightest, but I don't think you can really fake the confidence he's shown. And I also think there is something to be said for top boxers (even though he no longer really is one) being able to do well in UFC. We'll see if Toney can prove me right tomorrow.

    Anyway, I was wondering what everyone else thought.

    This is a very interesting fight to me. I'm a fan of mma and boxing but have always thought that boxers are much more talented than mma fighters. However, considering they are fighting using MMA rules I believe you have to give the advantage to Couture. The thing is Couture has never fought anyone with the punching power of James Toney, and you also have to consider they will be fighting in 4 oz gloves Saturday and Toney usually fights in 10 oz gloves. I'm not sure what will happenn Saturday but I think Toney gets a first round KO.

    James Toney will get lucky and win and the boxing people will go nuts the next day and the sport of MMA will die and boxing will once again rule the sports worl when it comes to fights!

    Toney's only chance is to catch Couture before Couture gets his hands on him once Couture gets his hands on him all the boxing skills in the world won't help

    The only way he wins in a KO which would be a lot more fun then watching Couture spoon him for 15 minutes

    If Couture can't finish him, that'd be one hell of an embarrassment for him.

    Exactly.

    Unless Randy just decides to be totally stupid, and stand and trade punches with him, then Randy should be able to easily win this fight by taking him down and destroying Toney on the ground.

    If Randy takes him down there is no way, IMO, that Toney gets anywhere near lasting 15 minutes. If Randy takes him down early this one is over in the first round.

    That was really, really, really.........gay.

    Toney had nothing. My connection stuttered at the beginning. Did he even throw a punch from standing?

    I can't believe this fight was booked.

    I can't belive it was second billing on a PPV event. A complete disservice and slap in the face by Dana to his other more deserving fighters who have spilled their blood and guts in the octogon for that slotting.

    Dude was just out of his element.

    If Couture stepped into Toney's world, it'd be the same sort of lop-sided result but in favor of Toney.

    So?

    If we're talking about who the better fighter is then Boxing is irrelevant since you can box all you want in MMA. He's not being limited in anyway like a MMA fighter would be in boxing, if he's a better fighter he shouldn't be dominated like that in a fight

    Toney hasn't been a good boxer in 10 years, why would someone think he'd be a good MMA fighter?

    This had fail written all over it. I just hope no one got suckered into paying for it (assuming it was PPV).

    That's like pitting Dez Bryant against some scrub baseball player in a hitting contest.

    Dez isn't being limited to use his superior athleticism but I bet he'd lose miserably. (I actually don't know if Dez played baseball or not, that wasn't my point.)

    Different rules, different worlds.

    If you don't have even the basic skill set to survive under a specific set of rules, I don't know how you can make an honest comparison.

    It's two completely different things. Each guy would win at his perspective sport unless a lucky haymaker says otherwise.
